Lycamobile launches with Vodafone – The Netherlands

Lycamobile, after announcing a partnership with Vodafone back in April, has launched its new pre-pay offering. The MVNO already operates with T-Mobile but is switching focus towards Vodafone. The operator will wind down its T-Mobile venture and begin porting subscribers across to its Vodafone MVNO.

Commenting back in April, Lycamobile’s Chief Executive Officer, Milind Kangle said: “We are delighted to have signed this partnership deal with Vodafone Netherlands, and chose them for their dedicated partnership approach to the MVNO market and their superior network coverage and quality. Thanks to the full MVNO technical architecture Lycamobile has developed, we are able to provide an enhanced low-cost, high-quality mobile service to our Dutch customers. It’s all about adding value and supplying a premium product without any compromises.”

Also commenting from Vodafone Netherlands, General Manager Wholesale, Gary Bhomer stated: “This is a big win for Vodafone. Lycamobile has an extremely strong user base in the Netherlands and we look forward to working with Lycamobile to migrate that base, and to build further on their success to date.”
