Crowded MVNO market in Poland holds modest market share

Friday 7 February 2014 | 16:51 CET | Author: Erik Sloots | Background
Poland has a virtual operator (VO) market with a relatively large number of players catering to a diversified audience. However, we estimate that the VO players have a relatively modest market share of about 2 to 3 percent. Poland has just over 30 active MVNOs, while the total mobile market consists of about 55.5 active SIM-cards in Q3 2013.
