Commsrisk Top Ten for April 2017

One of my infamous rants about ‘X percent average leakage’ topped the charts during April. Does a growing number of RAFM pros believe we need a better value proposition than arguing leakage was high, remains high, and will always be high?

Other big stories covered arrests and prison sentences for fraudsters, progress with the adoption of revenue assurance in utilities, and the threat to privacy created by an explosion of connected devices. That made April an exciting month for news and opinion, leading to healthy audience figures.

The most popular April articles are listed below, ranked by the number of unique views.

  1. The myth of 3 percent leakage has to end
  2. MTN accountant arrested for million dollar fraud
  3. Telco boss cloned phones; gets 6 year prison term
