Over those years, we have developed the world's largest MVNO competence centre through extensive study of the market since its beginnings.

Currently, the MVNO market is attracting interest from all sorts of players. However, our research shows that there are certain prerequisites for success. The first is a thorough understanding of the market. The second is a strategy that differentiates you in an increasingly complex market with many burgeoning players.

Those prerequisites apply whether you're an MNO, MVNO, retailer, media organisation or a technology provider. The fact is, succeeding in the MVNO market is exceedingly difficult, and only the most skilful have a chance of surviving.

On this website, you will find a lot of information gleaned from Strand Consult's 16 years of analysing the MVNO market. We've already shared a lot of this valuable information with more than 140 mobile operators worldwide, as well as with some the most significant MVNO players.

Knowledge is your key to your success


History of the MVNO market
The MVNO market kicked off way back in 1990-91, when a number of players rented capacity on the networks of existing MNOs. The very first MVNOs copied almost everything from MNOs - establishing shops, subsidising terminals and then marketing themselves as operator number 3, 4 or 5 in their local market.

The future of the MVNO market
Looking at the MVNO market from a historical perspective, there is little doubt that it is cyclical and subject to constant change.

Many people believe naively that the market will remain one in which MVNOs sell their mobile services in much the same way as the classic MNO and discount MVNOs.

It's no secret that Strand Consult has a great deal of experience in the MVNO market. When you've made a living out of analysing the mobile market for well over a decade, it's natural that MVNOs would account for a big part of the research that we conduct.
