A 50:50 joint venture, the new MVNO will sell its own-brand tariff plans through its stores and online. quotes Gerry Gray, CEO of Tesco Hungary as saying: ‘We are constantly looking for new opportunities to offer Hungarian customers value and innovation, and we believe that Tesco Mobile will offer both.
