French mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) collective Alternative Mobile has received backing from the country’s Competition Authority in its bid to allow its members to launch 4G retail services, reports PrepaidMVNO. The Competition Authority has ruled that MVNOs must be able to launch Long Term Evolution (LTE)-based offerings at the same time as the country’s mobile network operators (MNOs). The watchdog noted that under the terms of their 4G concessions the MNOs must not harm the commercial freedom of the resellers, by welcoming full MVNOs on to their networks, agreeing to any reasonable access requests, and imposing fair pricing structures.
