  • A mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), or mobile other licensed operator (MOLO) is a wireless communications services provider that does not own the wireless network infrastructure over which the MVNO provides services to its customers. An MVNO enters into a business agreement with a mobile network operator to obtain bulk access to network services at wholesale rates, then sets retail prices independently. An MVNO may use its own customer service, billing support systems, marketing and sales personnel or it may employ the services of a mobile virtual network enabler

    The largest multi-country MVNO is Lycamobile, which operates in 17 countries. PLINTRON world’s largest multi-country MVNE have enabled Lycamobile and by 2016 will be offering its MVNE services in 31 countries.


  • Great initiative. More MVNOs means more competition. MVNOs usually offer much cheaper services than mobile operators, and that can mean much more economical services to the masses! :) Lets hope more MVNOs like Vectone, Lebara, Giffgaff, etc join after this!
