Atmovia (Viacloud) signs MVNA contract with Everything Everywhere

Everything Everywhere, the merged company of T-Mobile and Orange in the UK, has announced a strategic partnership with Mobile Virtual Network Aggregator (MVNA) Atmovia, the UK wholesale subsidiary of the Viacloud Group.

Atmovia is a carrier-grade wholesale mobile company focussed on the development and growth of MVNOs within the UK and Europe.  It is the MVNA subsidiary of the Viacloud Group, a private equity-backed telecommunications company focussed on mobile and international communications.

Marc Overton, Vice President, Wholesale and M2M at Everything Everywhere, said:  “This is a very exciting step in the evolution of the MVNA market, and will allow small and large MVNOs alike to establish themselves in the market quickly and efficiently, giving them ultimate control over the service they offer their customers.  The Atmovia platform, coupled with the scale and reliability of the UK’s largest 2G and 3G network, reinforces Everything Everywhere’s position as the number one choice for MVNOs.”

Ahmed Alumran, Managing Director of the Viacloud Group, said: “We have made a significant investment in the Atmovia platform and our relationship with Everything Everywhere, because we believe there is a very real market opportunity in providing this level of infrastructure and functionality to MVNOs in the UK and across Europe. Our aim is to enable our MVNO partners to achieve their growth and profitability objectives with the knowledge that they are backed up by both the UK’s largest mobile network, and the most advanced mobile platform available.”

Richard Williams, Chief Operating Officer at Atmovia, said: “We don’t believe that anyone else has done what we have; investing in the highest-spec, carrier grade technology for our platform, and taking the time to fully integrate it with our MNO partner.  Our MVNO customers will benefit from this investment directly, as they are able to quickly react to changing market conditions and offer their own customers the flexible and high-quality service they expect, on a network that – like us – is investing great amounts of time and money to provide the best service for its customers.”
