Cablecom teams up with Orange

7 Jul 2011

Swiss cableco Cablecom inked an MVNO agreement with Orange Switzerland earlier this week, following the ending of its mobile resale agreement with another network operator, Sunrise (launched in 2005). The operator has submitted an application to the Bundesamt fur Kommunikation (Bakom) for a new mobile network code (MNC), but has nevertheless ruled out an immediate launch of the new service with Orange.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, at the end of March 2011 Cablecom was Switzerland’s second largest broadband provider and the third largest fixed line operator by subscribers.
