EasyMobile close to MVNO deal

24 Nov 2004

Danish fixed line operator TDC says it is close to reaching a deal with T-Mobile UK, which would enable it to launch a low cost mobile operation in the country under the banner EasyMobile. TDC signed a deal with Stelios Haji-Ioannou’s Easy Group to gain exclusive rights to the Easy brand in August this year but the company’s attempts to clinch a network sharing deal in the UK have recently been snubbed by cellcos Orange and Vodafone, both of which are thought to be worried that the launch of the EasyMobile service could eat into their revenues. T-Mobile, however, has agreed to set wholesale tariffs for the cellco, although no further details of the deal have been disclosed.
