Wind strikes MVNO deal

27 Nov 2007

Italy’s number three mobile operator, Wind, has signed a wholesale agreement with the French retail chain Auchan which will see the latter launch as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in Italy in the first half of next year. Auchan operates 45 hypermarkets in Italy, Thomson Financial reports. Meanwhile, Wind is thought to be close to signing another MVNO deal, this time with the national motorway toll firm Autostrade, though full details have still to be released.
