UK companies take home five of seven awards on offer
Lycamobile has won the Most Successful MVNO award at this year’s MVNOs World Congress.
The MVNO, which claims to be the largest in the world with more than 16 million customers, was recognised for several initiatives it undertook in the past year.
These include providing free unlimited data bundles to NHS workers during lockdown, and beginning to roll out 5G connectivity in Poland.
Additionally, it set up its own MNO in Uganda, and aims to roll out 5G across all of its markets by the end of 2021.
It has also redesigned its Lyca Rewards program to allow its customers and employees better access to bundles and gift vouchers from participating brands.
Lyca also set up an insurance program, Lycainsure, in partnership with Quote Me Today.
“This award means a great deal to us and we thank everyone at MVNOs Mobile World Congress for selecting us,” said Lycamobile founder and chairman Dr. Allirajah Subaskaran.
“This year in particular, against the difficult backdrop of COVID-19, I have been humbled by the role that our business has played in living by our mission and bringing people together.
“Throughout the pandemic, Lycamobile has seen a remarkable rise in demand driven by an increasing reliance on data and mobile services to facilitate connectivity, for work and recreation.
“Providing over sixteen million people with the best possible service and value – whether that’s in London, D.C., Kampala, or Stockholm – is something that we will always strive to do.”
Overall, UK companies took home five of the seven awards on offer at the MVNOs World Congress.
Warrington-based MDS Global won Best Solution Provider, while BT Wholesale won Most Innovative Wholesaler.
Three Wholesale and Mobius Networks received the Best IoT Enabler prize, and Honest Mobile won Best MVNO Start-up.
