X-Mobility and 3 aim for 20 MVNOS by 2010 – United Kingdom

X-Mobility and 3 UK have revealed their future intentions by claiming that they will have 20 MVNOs up and running on the network by the end of 2009. X-Mobility and 3 claim that they have 10 committed MVNOs with 10 more expected by the end of the year.

They are known to have an agreement with student focussed MVNO Uni Tel and handset distribution and fulfilment firm 20:20 Mobile.

X-Mobility Chief Executive Officer Wayne Myers commented: “We are 18 months ahead of schedule. We have ordered more than 170,000 SIMs with 3 and taken delivery of approximately 85,000 already.

"Businesses have wanted to set up MVNOs, but MNOs have wanted too much commitment and operational development. It takes almost a year to set up with an MNO; six weeks with us."
