The MVNO Directory

MVNOs are mobile service offerings from operators without their own licensed mobile spectrum nor a physical base station network and mobile backhaul. Of course, there are exceptions to the rule but the essential factor is that an MVNO cooperates with an MNO for network access. MNOs are traditional mobile operators such as Orange, SingTel and Vodafone. MVNOs include the likes of Virgin Mobile, Tesco Mobile and Lycamobile. For this research, both MVNOs and resellers (which act as the provider to the subscriber) are included.

The 6th edition of this global dataset is now available in PDF and Excel format. The previous edition was launched May 2011 and a thorough news review has taken place since then. In completing the news review the research team use their industry knowledge in combination with their research skills to ensure the dataset is correctly updated and that inaccurate releases are not included in the update. Each operation is then reviewed to thoroughly update the publication. Brands launched and owned by MNOs are not included.
