The latest mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) to dip its toe into the Dutch wireless market launched yesterday when Delta Mobiel, a venture set up by local utility company DELTA NV began offering services on a pilot trial basis over KPN’s host network. Working in conjunction with its subsidiary ZeelandNet, Delta Mobiel is offering a choice of two call plans. The entry-level ‘basic’ subscription costs EUR8.95 (USD11.25) per month for 150 voice minutes or SMS, while the ‘complete’ plan costs EUR15.95 for 300 minutes or SMS, plus free on-net calls to other Delta Mobiel numbers and fixed numbers of ZeelandNet. Furthermore, users can bolt on an internet data bundle on either plan, comprising 1GB of data for EUR9.95 per month, with additional usage charged at EUR0.05 per 1MB. DELTA currently delivers multi-utility services to some 180,000 customers in its franchise area.
