ChatGPT and the telecommunications industry

The tech industry is abuzz about ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool from OpenAI. How will this impact the telecommunications industry? Let’s have a look.

ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence text-processing model. Prompt it with a request or question, and it formulates a response. It’s getting a lot of buzz because the quality of its responses is sometimes surprisingly good.

Here’s an example that we fed into ChatGPT:

Write a 100-word essay explaining what ChatGPT is and how it might affect the telecommunications industry. Describe potential drawbacks and concerns as well as benefits.
ChatGPT is a large language model developed by OpenAI that can generate human-like text based on a given prompt. It is trained on a massive dataset of text from the internet and can understand and respond to a wide range of topics. In the telecommunications industry, ChatGPT can be used to improve customer service by providing more accurate and efficient responses to customer inquiries. However, there are also concerns about the potential for ChatGPT to replace human customer service representatives and the ethical implications of using AI in this way. Additionally, there is a risk of ChatGPT generating biased or inappropriate responses. Despite these concerns, the potential benefits of using ChatGPT in the telecommunications industry include cost savings and improved customer satisfaction.

We counted, and ChatGPT’s response is 122 words. Yeah, apparently chatbots struggle with brevity too.

Use cases

Here are a few use case examples we’ve seen showing how people are using ChatGPT:

  • Draft press releases.
  • Create a sales pitch.
  • Write a privacy policy for a website.
  • Explain a technical topic (like ChatGPT, above)
  • Provide specific examples of how to do something complex in Excel. (This works well.)
  • Write code snippets for a particular purpose in a popular programming language such as JavaScript, Python, MS VBA.


Here are a few concerns that we’ve seen:

  • Students will use ChatGPT to do their homework assignments.
  • Bad actors will use it to help write malicious code.
    • OpenAI has trained the model to prevent malicious use, but bad actors will try to find ways around these controls.
  • Web search engine providers are worried that some people will use ChatGPT instead of web searches.
    • There goes their ad revenue!
  • It will take jobs!


  • Increased productivity
  • Potential cost savings
