Lycamobile moves from Vodafone to KPN network

Monday 2 September 2013 | 16:05 CET | News
Lycamobile has ended its network agreement with Vodafone Netherlands and transferred its customers to the KPN network. The MVNO had worked with Vodafone since 2009. A spokesperson for Vodafone Wholsale confirmed the move and said it was a mutual agreement on good terms. 

Lycamobile is a full MVNO, making it relatively easy to switch radio network providers. Telecompaper estimates the company has around 700,000 customers in the Netherlands, including its other brands Toggle Mobile and GT Mobile. 

Lycamobile's last network change, from T-Mobile to Vodafone in 2009, did not go as smoothly. T-Mobile demanded almost EUR 40 million in outstanding payments from the company, and the case ended up in court, with T-Mobile even shutting off access to Lycamobile customers for a short period. The transition to Vodafone was completed eventually in May 2010, when the disputes also came to an end. Lycamobile replaced customer Sims that time, offering double credit as well, while this time customers were moved to the new network without a change in Sim.
