Cell C and Virgin Mobile deal expected this month

2 Sep 2005

South African mobile operator Cell C says it expects to seal a joint venture agreement with Virgin Mobile by the end of the month. Richard Branson’s Virgin Group has long been looking to gain a toehold in South Africa to add to its expanding empire of Virgin Mobile MVNO businesses. Cell C says that, as MVNOs remain illegal in the country, Virgin is likely to act as an ‘enhanced service provider’.
