Gamma Telecom launches MVNO service for 35 partners


Service provider allows 35 partners to run white-label MVNOs following deal with Vodafone to become a mobile virtual network aggregator

Gamma Telecom has launched a new service enabling 35 of its existing channel partners to become MVNOs on Vodafone’s network.

The service provider struck a deal with Vodafone to become a mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA) in January. The service was originally scheduled to go live last quarter.

Following the deal with Vodafone, Gamma attracted more than 600 existing partners and potential new resellers to a series of five roadshows across the UK.

Gamma had ditched an MVNO agreement with Three in order to secure the MVNA deal with Vodafone.

Gamma’s partners for the service, which include London-based telecoms provider XLN, can manage their white-label MVNO service from Gamma through the firm’s existing portal for fixed line services.

Gamma said the service will allow partners to provide tariff flexibility under their own-branded network.

Gamma head of mobile services Rob Davis (pictured) said, “There has been a significant amount of interest in our mobile proposition since the announcement of our MVNA with Vodafone and we’ve been working closely with both new and existing partners to get them ready for launch.

“We’re positioned well for migrating our existing customer base as well as significant growth from the new partners we’re currently signing up.”

Vodafone UK director of wholesale Nick Parbutt said: “Since we won Gamma as a partner we have been working very closely supporting them to launch. We are really excited to see them launch and look forward to continuing our support to allow them, and their resellers, to be successful.”
