A1 Telekom: the cellco that likes to say ‘Yesss!’

17 Sep 2013

Austrian mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Yesss! has confirmed that all of its subscribers have now been shifted from the former Orange Austria network to that of its new parent company, A1 Telekom Austria. The deal concluded in January this year, with the users consolidated as part of Telekom’s reported user base from 1Q13.

As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, MVNO Yesss!, as well as certain other intellectual property of Orange, including its former ‘One’ brand name, was sold to A1 for EUR390 million (USD521.4 million) as part of a side deal to Orange’s EUR1.4 billion takeover by Hutchison 3G Austria (H3G).
