The United Arab Emirates has no plans to permit the use of MVNO based services in the country, the telecoms regulator has announced, quashing persistant rumours about the plans.

"There are no plans for MVNO. We are happy with the current structure of the market," Mohamed Al Ghanim, the director general of the TRA told The National newspaper.

The country is split between two networks, Etisalat and Du and market penetration is one of the highest in the world at over 230 percent thanks to the large expat community.

Just Oman and Jordan allow MVNOs in the region.
