Everything Everywhere has announced a strategic partnership with mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA) Atmovia to help grow its MVNO business.
Atmovia is the UK wholesale subsidiary of the Viacloud group. The operator said the deal will help MVNO customers set up a new tariff or service through Atmovia's portal within 10 minutes, compared to the weeks it could take previously. It said the MVNA can handle customer bases of up to seven million subscribers.
Everything Everywhere also works with MVNA Transatel on MVNOs including China Telecom (Europe), Axis Telecom, Unicom and Priyo.
Everything Everywhere VP for wholesale and M2M Marc Overton 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.'
Atmovia COO Richard Williams 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.'
