EE: UK MVNOs will be slow to take up 4G

2 Dec 2013

The UK cellular operator EE has revealed that just one of its 26 mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) partners is set to begin reselling 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services in 2014. Jason Bellman, EE’s director of MVNO operations, has said in an interview with Mobile Today that the pace of the rollout to resellers will be dictated largely by its partners, which range from niche operations such as Econet to large MVNO partnerships with the likes of BT and Virgin Media. He said: ‘It depends on what our clients’ propositions are. 2G and 3G services are still a priority for many and we are working with each of our customers on a case-by-case basis.’
