Everything Everywhere signs three new MVNO partners with Transatel

  • Everything Everywhere has signed three new MVNOs – Priyo, the Phone Co-Op and RMmobile by Transatel.
  • MVNOs benefit from a bigger network in the future as a result of Everything Everywhere.
  • The move brings the number of Everything Everywhere’s MVNO partnerships to 21.

Everything Everywhere, the UK's biggest communications company, has today announced that three new mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) – Priyo, The Phone Co-op and RMmobile – have launched on its network. The deals were secured by mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA) Transatel, and demonstrate Everything Everywhere’s commitment to expanding MVNO opportunities across the UK. In total, Everything Everywhere now has 21 MVNO partnerships.

All three MVNOs will have launched in the next month. The move will enable:

  • Priyo Communications to launch a value-focused service called 'Priyomobile' targeted specifically towards Bangladeshis living in the UK
  • The Phone Co-Op to offer both new and existing customers who are attracted by its ethical, co-operative approach to business, with a range of competitive packages for all their telecoms needs (mobile, line rental, calls, broadband) integrated into a single bill
  • RMmobile to offer business customers a one-stop shop for all their communications needs, with savings of over 35% a month on their mobile, broadband, telecoms and hosting services

With Transatel's speed to market, companies are able to launch as a MVNO on Everything Everywhere quicker, easier and more cost-effectively than ever before – appealing to both telecom resellers and companies that have a brand new distribution network.

Jason Bellman, Director MVNO and Wholesale Operations at Everything Everywhere, said: "As the UK’s largest communications company we can offer a bigger and better network with more support for our partners. We have very ambitious plans to become the network partner of choice for new and existing MVNOs, and through our partnership with Transatel, MVNOs of all sizes have the opportunity to enter the exciting mobile space."
