Innovating in the telco business isn’t easy, that’s why so few companies dare to try. You need to be a different breed and a different sort of company; small, nimble and with big aspirations. Tuenti is just one of these kind of organisations.
Founded in Spain in 2006 by a group of young and visionary entrepreneurs, the digital and technology company Tuenti was born as a successful social network and quickly attracted 15 million users. Seduced by its success, global telecom giant Telefónica acquired Tuenti and helped it to evolve into a technology focused mobile phone network.
Tuenti developed various innovative services to help costumers get rid of astronomical roaming bills, as well as allow them to enjoy device agnostic communication if and when they wanted to. Whereas low cost operators have a price and data battle in an over saturated market, Tuenti’s engineers bet on developing technological solutions able to shape the future of telecommunications.
