UK based mobile network operator EE (formerly the T Mobile Orange combo) says that it has signed up two more MVNOs to operate over its network Talk Home Mobile and White Mobile.
These are the first new partners to be announced since EE launched its new brand on 31st October this year.
EE will provides its MVNO customers with access to its 2G and 3G network, and aims to introduce LTE capability for its first wholesale partners in 2013. It offers its MVNO customers a fully HSPA+ enabled 3G network, and will have rolled out DC-HSPA+ to 40% of the population by the end of 2012.
Jason Bellman, Director of MVNO & National M2M at EE, said: "There are some hugely innovative MVNO propositions coming to market from mass and niche brands across a number of segments, indicating renewed confidence in our economy. The strategic move by the UK's largest calling card brands is a great example of this."
The largest calling card company targeting the ethnic market in the UK, Talk Home has introduced a unique SIM-based proposition alongside its calling card options.
Talk Home is the second MVNO brand to be launched by the Nowtel Group of companies following the successful launch of Now Mobile in 2010.
White Mobile launched at the beginning of November as the sister brand of one of the most successful ethnic international calling cards in the UK. It offers competitive rates targeting the UK's ethnic population with PAYG mobile services.
EE's MVNA partners Transatel and Atmovia offer MVNOs the tools they need to launch to market within weeks.
