Lycamobile has another bumpy week – The Netherlands

Lycamobile’s Dutch operation is still suffering from the move away from T-Mobile to Vodafone. Users of the service this week experienced network outages which Vodafone have been actively trying to address. The MNO has offered public support to Lycamobile reaffirming that this was a technical issue which has been addressed rather than a 2nd front in the MVNOs battle with T-Mobile.

In a further development to the legal dispute with T-Mobile, the MNO has successfully submitted a claim in the Hague (court) against Lycamobile for EUR 38.5 million. This represents an amount plus legal costs which T-Mobile states the MVNO owes it for unpaid same network minutes.
