Virgin Mobile to launch MVNO service in Mexico and Brazil
What: Virgin Mobile will provide its MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) service in Mexico and Brazil.
Why it matters: The new operations will follow other launches made by the company in Chile and Colombia.
Virgin Mobile has already started to expand its business structure in Mexico with a focus on sales, marketing and customer service. Now, the company will provide its MVNO (Mobile Virtual Operator Service) in Mexico over the next few months. For that, the company counts with Telefonica network as in November 2013 signed an agreement to buy network capacity from Telefonica Mexico.
In the case of Brazil, a MVNO license from telecom's regulator Anatel was requested by Virgin on 23 January. The company is still waiting for regulatory approval to launch its services in the country.
Virgin has already signed a partnership agreement with Vivo, and will provide its MVNO services using the Telefonica/Vivo network.
Virgin Mobile is the owner and creator of the OMV and its brand with more than 18 million clients in ten countries. Across Latin America, Virgin provides MVNO services in Chile, Colombia.
