Vodafone Italia set to launch low-cost MVNO brand - report

Tuesday 30 May 2017 | 13:59 CET | News
Vodafone Italia is preparing to launch a low-cost MVNO service later this year to compete with Telecom Italia's recently unveiled Kena Mobile brand and the imminent entry of France's Iliad as the country's fourth mobile network operator, reports Milano-Finanza. On 08 March Vodafone created a company called Vei SRL and informed rivals that it holds a general licence for full MVNO activities. The new company would serve as the vehicle for the new brand, which could begin providing mobile number portability services as early as September 2017, said the report.
