EE unveils the best value 4GEE plans with international calling and business software included
EE and Virgin Media have announced that EE will continue to provide the network and services that underpin Virgin Media's mobile service, Virgin Mobile, the UK's leading MVNO with over three million customers.
The new and exclusive MVNO agreement is an extension of EE and Virgin Media's longstanding and successful partnership, which dates back to the launch of Virgin Mobile in 1999 as the world's first MVNO.
EE was selected based on the strength of its network, its strong industry reputation and its flexible and technologically advanced MVNO platform. EE offers the widest 3G and 2G coverage in the UK as well as the country's biggest 4G network.
Gerry McQuade, Chief Marketing Officer, Non-consumer, EE said: "We’re delighted that following a competitive industry tender, Virgin Media has again chosen to partner with EE and build on our longstanding and successful relationship. By choosing the EE network, Virgin Media will ensure its customers and around 14,000 employees continue to have access to the UK’s biggest and fastest mobile network."
Dana Strong , Virgin Media’s Chief Operating Officer, said: "Combining the leading mobile network with our powerful broadband means Virgin Media customers get the best connectivity whether at home, out and about, or even beneath the streets of London. Having worked together for over a decade, this partnership between the world’s first virtual operator and what is now Britain’s most comprehensive mobile network is moving into an exciting new phase."
