Project 3: Predicting Customer Churn in Telecom Company
Industry – Telecommunications
Problem Statement – How to increase the profitability of a telecom major by reducing the churn rate
Topics: In this project, you will work with the telecom company’s customer dataset. This dataset includes subscribing to telephone customer details. Each of the columns has data on phone numbers, call minutes during various times of the day, the charges incurred, lifetime account duration, and whether the customer has churned some services by unsubscribing them. The goal is to predict whether a customer will eventually churn or not.
