Why STL Partners?

Real engagement

We are always available to discuss how our insights apply to your situation, to validate assumptions or to challenge our thinking.

We develop our research agenda with our customers front of mind.



Real insight

STL Partners has a track record of being ahead of the curve on disruptions and innovations such as platform business models, Edge, AI, NFV, and Telco Cloud.

We are known for original thinking, particularly the Coordination Age concept which defines a holistic new strategic context and opportunity for telecoms.


Real experience and talent

A mix of experienced telecoms execs and bright, driven digital natives – our team brings deep expertise in specific domains.

We look beyond the telecoms industry to inspire and challenge organisations to move forward and grow.



Real quality

Our clients have limited time and attention, so we are crisp. Equally, they want well-argued and supported insight. We don’t publish anything until it meets both criteria.

We also share our insights in a range of formats to suit different needs, including webinars, the STL Insights blog, one-page report summaries, newsletters, and analyst calls.
