UPC Czech considering MVNO plan

15 Oct 2012

UPC Ceska Republika, a subsidiary of US-based Liberty Global Inc, is said to be interested in securing a licence to become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in the country – possibly as early as this year. An unconfirmed report from news journal E15 suggests that UPC would be keen to work with Vodafone CR to secure an MVNO deal, adding that it is one of three groups thought to be considering virtual reseller business models there. The other two are Ringier, which is interested in teaming up with the incumbent Telefonica O2 CR as host provider, and retail chain Tesco, which is contemplating a partnership deal with both Telefonica and T-Mobile. If realised, it is understood the Czech Telecommunication Office (CTU) would consider issuing MVNOs with three-year licences in the first instance.
