KDG launches MVNO – Germany

German telecommunications company, Kabel Deutschland (KDG), has announced the launch of its MVNO, allowing the company to give its customers a quad-play package.

KDG will use the O2 Germany network for its network infrastructure requirements. O2 Germany was first mooted as an MNO partner when KDG made its initial MVNO proposal in March 2009.

The MVNO’s service will be entitled ‘Mobile Phone’ and will only be available to subscribers of KDG’s Internet and telephone packages. ‘Mobile Phone’ will give users free calls to other KDG fixed line and wireless customers, calls to other mobile networks and German fixed line numbers will cost EUR 0.15 (USD 0.21) a minute.

Subscribers to KDG’s Internet and telephone package will be able to add up to a total of 5 SIM cards to their account. There will be a EUR 9.99 (USD 13.98) activation fee applicable to each new SIM card ordered.
