Thursday 26 September 2019 | 12:01 CET | News
Virgin Mobile is finally poised to launch as an MVNO in Ecuador over two years after securing its licence, reports Telesemana, citing a tweet from telecom minister Andres Michelana. "After meeting with Richard Branson, CEO of the Virgin Group, president Lenin Moreno has arranged for me to expedite the entry into the country of Virgin Mobile. We are thus fulfilling another goal of the Digital Ecuador strategy: having a more connected country," said Michelana in a tweet shared in the president's official account.
