Why we invested in Opensignal
Mobile internet access and coverage is now mission critical for consumers, businesses and public services. Devices and prices are commoditising, and therefore customer selection is focusing on quality of coverage.
However, there has been no reliable standard in coverage quality nor effective tools to resolve the underlying issues.
Opensignal provides this standard.
Opensignal’s credibility in its key markets is impressive. This strong base is proving an excellent platform from which to broaden internationally and deepen with an increasing range of software tools. Frog supported Opensignal’s exceptional team with strategic and operational scale-up input to seize an enormous international opportunity, which was realised when they were acquired by Commlinkdata in 2021.
“We are delighted to have the firm backing of Frog Capital, as they have a unique understanding of the scale-up phase in the software and telco markets. Frog will be an excellent partner for the next phase in our development,”
