A Look at Global MVNO Companies

A Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) is a mobile operator that does not own its own spectrum and usually does not have its own network infrastructure. Instead, MVNO’s have business arrangements with traditional mobile operators to buy minutes of use (MOU) for sale to their own customers.

Historically speaking, simple resellers of telecom sold core services such as long distance, local exchange, and mobile network services. In contrast, MVNO’s typically add value such as brand appeal, distribution channels, and other affinities to the resale of mobile services.

What are the MVNO Types?

  • Full MVNO: A full MVNO is responsible for the complete infrastructure, operations, customers, and data, and full control of services and products it delivers to the market, as well as flexibility in developing and deploying new services. The MNO supplies the network access.  A full MVNO operates similar to an MNO, but without the MNO spectrum.
  • Service Provider MVNO: The service provider, MVNO, will either work under its brand or co-branded with the host operator (by adding ‘Powered by’ to the brand). In best cases, the MVNO provides a concept, brand, distribution channels or a large current client base to the table to be used to make sales, or differentiate from the competition.
  • Enhanced Service Provider MVNO: This model works under its own brand with its own SIM cards and can get its own numbering range/mobile network code, although not fully independent from the host operator’s numbering plan. The MVNO can add its own value-added services, to leverage sales, or differentiate from the competition.
  • Branded Reseller MVNO:  This type will either work under its own brand or co-branded with the MNO. In most cases, the branded reseller has a brand, distribution channels and/or a large existing client base to the table, from which it can enhance its sales.  It is often the easiest MVNO type to get an MNO to accept, as the MNO can control most of the processes.

Successful Global MVNO Companies

What do all of the leading Global MVNO companies all have in common?  They all started with an MVNO Business Plan.

Successful MVNO’s are those that position their operations so that customers do not distinguish any significant differences in service or network performance yet offer some special affinity to their customers.

Successful MVNO’s will also be those that have ample financial resources and sufficient agreements with existing operators to provide a good service coverage area. Additionally, well-diversified independent MVNO’s can offer a product mix that incumbent mobile operators can not match. For example, grocery store MVNO’s could offer a package of MOU’s and groceries.
