TIM low-cost MVNO brand to be called Kena Mobile - report

Monday 13 February 2017 | 15:49 CET | News
The low-cost, no frills service to be launched by TIM (Telecom Italia) later this year will be called Kena Mobile, reports website Cor.com, citing business weekly Affari e Finanza. The service will be launched this summer as a full MVNO before France's Iliad enters the Italian market as the country's fourth mobile network operator, said the report. The aim will be to counter Iliad's aggressive cost cutting with an offer that doesn't affect TIM's own premium 4G+ services, with the new operator using its own systems.
