Auchan postpones MVNO launch – Portugal

Auchan, the leading French supermarket chain, has deferred the launch of its MVNO service in Portugal. According to Eduardo Igrejas, President of Auchan Portugal, the company will first monitor the economic conditions in the country before taking any decision on the MVNO. He added that the group has “other strategic options” to implement apart from the launch of MVNO in the country. Auchan had received the MVNO licence in November 2007 from ANACOM, the Portuguese telecommunications sector regulator.
