Vectone enters another market – United Kingdom

European MVNO Vectone has expanded its operation to include the United Kingdom. The operator already offers its services in Austria, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Switzerland. The MVNO is a discount operation focused on selling SIMs with a budget offering. The UK operation will offer 5p calls and texts, 1p calls at weekends, free same network minutes and texts as well as GBP 5 for porting an existing number to the operator.

Richard Moat, T-Mobile UK’s Managing Director commented: "We are delighted to be supporting Vectone’s ambitious expansion plans for the UK market. The deal with Vectone signals our intent to become a major player in the ethnic MVNO arena. With international calling card minutes rapidly migrating to mobile, this is an excellent time to be forging new partnerships in a segment, which is showing signs of bucking the recession with strong projected growth rates. Vectone builds on our eight existing MVNO partnerships and underlines our ambitions to target new growth areas in the wholesale market."
