MVNO Monday: a guide to the week’s virtual operator developments

New call-to-action

6 Feb 2023

South Korean payment solutions provider KGMobilians Co has become the latest company to enter the MVNO sector, through its new KG Mobile unit. Via its Mobilpay solution, the company was a pioneer in the integrated payment space, offering a service that was compatible with all of the country’s mobile network operators. The new MVNO utilises the LG Uplus 4G/5G networks for connectivity.

Plintron Mexico, which operates as a mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA) in association with open access player Red Compartida has announced that it has enabled a total of eight MVNO launches within its first year of operation. Each of the unnamed companies are said to be successfully selling branded SIM-cards to customers. Plintron’s press release notes: ‘Instead of quoting a hefty technical integration fee and expecting companies to attract a substantial dedicated workforce, Plintron Mexico offers two flexible options for new as well as for mature MVNOs, without sacrificing on front-end features, applications or backend support.’

Finally, Florida-based MVNE Hello Labs (BeQuick) has been acquired by Banyan Software, a company which focuses on the takeover of enterprise software businesses. Operating as BeQuick, the acquired company says it delivers solutions for MVNOs to facilitate billing, inventory management, compliance, and integrations with key third-party providers.
