Uni-Tel selects x-Mobility for MVNO launch – UK

New student MVNO Uni-Tel has launched its service and is offering cheap national and international calls. Uni-Tel uses 3’s network and is being managed by MVNA x-Mobility.

Commenting on the development, Wayne Myers, Chief Executive Officer of x-Mobility, said: “This is a culmination of a lot of hard work and planning. But now as we have launched, we’re able to help even more brands that want to launch an MVNO service within 120 days and at a fraction of the cost of the traditional, direct route."

David Bickett, Business Development Director at 3, added: “X-Mobility has created a very compelling service which suits the excellent network that we have built in the UK. We believe that the smaller, niche MVNO players will be able to profit from the combination of 3UK’s network and X-Mobility’s MVNA service."

Mike Hall, Mobile Operations Director at Uni-Tel, further commented: “I’m really impressed with the X-Mobility business model and really grateful of it to. Thanks to X-Mobility we’ve been able to get our MVNO service up and running quickly. We think that we have a very compelling offering to the student market.
