Business Case Development

Hire experts to build a business case for your network

Determining how much capital, whether your own or subsidized, is needed to make a network build worthwhile can be a tricky endeavor. Your business is unique, which is why we build every model custom, tailored to your business model and assumptions.

Predictable Profitability


We analyze more variables to accurately predict the profitability of a new network build or broadband infrastructure upgrade:

Complete picture of demand

Understanding demand in your area comes down to the potential for you to obtain customers. To provide a more complete picture, we provide both detailed demographics data and estimations of existing supply, by technology type.

Detailed financials by served area

CQA Business Cases provide detailed financials, by area, for critical areas, such as take rates, projected market share, net income per subscriber, and more. The goal is to provide a clear picture of revenue potential that is backed up by detailed breakdowns in the areas most impactful to your long term business success.

Full capital breakdown

Cost is the other half of the picture for an accurate business case. A granular view of upfront investment needed is as important as the operation and maintenance over time. CQA Business Cases contain full output from our cost modeling services, detailing 20+ cost areas, including regional-specific labor costs, where possible.

Cost Modeling
