Virgin Mobile denies sale of LatAm operations

Monday 14 May 2018 | 11:43 CET | News
Virgin Mobile Latin America has no plans to sell its operations in Chile, Colombia and Mexico and will continue its efforts to grow the brand throughout the region, the company's CEO Peter Macnee told Chilean website La Tercera. "While the attention of the press flatters us, our goal remains to build the most successful mobile service in the region, geared to the needs of each client," said Macnee, while claiming "a constant interest from third parties" in the company due to its success in addressing customer needs.
