Blog post: Network Performance Score - initiate improvements with a QoE-centric score

There are various scores, as in scoring methods, claiming to measure the performance of mobile networks on the market. Some scores are based on plain technical metrics, others on quality of experience (QoE) measurements or surveys. Which score should a mobile network operator (MNO) choose? Should the score offer a transparent and stable method or be a black box?
