BT reveals Hong Kong MVNO plans

24 Nov 2004

BT Group is holding talks with several of Hong Kong’s 3G operators with the intention of becoming a 3G MVNO in the country, according to a report in the South China Morning Post. The UK-based operator said it plans to lease network capacity from a wireless operator next year.

BT dropped out of the Hong Kong mobile market in 2002 when it sold its interests in local cellco SmarTone to pay off group debt. The company’s current MVNO plans follow hot on the heels of the launch of its MVNO network sharing agreement with mobile giant Vodafone in the UK.
