Jazztel renews MVNO deal with Orange, aims to offer 4G ‘soon’

11 Mar 2014

Alternative Spanish fixed line provider Jazz Telecom (Jazztel) has reportedly inked an updated mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) contract with Orange Espana, with the new deal now valid until 31 January 2018. According to ADSLZone, one of the most notable terms of the revised contract is its inclusion of access to Orange’s LTE network, with both parties said to be working to allow Jazztel to offer its mobile customers 4G services ‘as soon as possible’.

As noted in TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Jazztel has seen some success in the cellular sector, and at the end of 2013 it had 1.165 million mobile customers on its books, up from 343,240 a year earlier, and far higher than its original forecast of between 750,000 and 850,000 subscribers at that date.
