France welcomes new MVNO in Lebara Mobile

7 May 2010

The Lebara Group, which was founded in 2001 to offer tailored MVNO telecoms solutions across Europe, has announced the launch of commercial operations in France. Lebara Mobile says that it has launched its pre-paid services in the country through a network hosting agreement with Bouygues Telecom. Yoganathan Ratheesan, the chief executive officer of Lebara, said: ‘France represents a significant opportunity for Lebara. We feel that our target audiences continue to be underserved and we are confident that our proven success can be replicated in the French market, ultimately displacing pre-paid international calling cards.’
