What you need to know for your MVNO to succeed

Mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) are gaining momentum in South Africa, with banks, retail stores and independent brands launching their own mobile services.

Instead of building their own network, an MVNO uses the mobile network infrastructure provided by a mobile network operator to offer mobile products and services.

Cell Cs MVNO software is probably their greatest asset if Blu can restructure them out of the consumer facing market.

"Pienaar predicts that South Africa will see the launch of many more MVNOs in the next few years."

Majority will fail, our economy is not big enough and the pricing structure on MVNOs won't allow for competition.

The only company's that can succeed in the MVNO space are companies like the banks who don't have to turn a profit on it and merely use it as a VAS.
