We have seen major changes throughout the telecoms industry over the last decade – and with MVNOs grasping at the opportunity to grab a larger share of the global market, a growing number of companies who previously had very little, or no involvement at all in telecoms are now viewing the MVNO business model as a building block towards the development of long term strategies and increased profits.
Certainly, the MVNO insurgence shows no signs of slowing down, and with the market connecting less than 3% of total global subscriptions (widely thought to be the result of a severe lack in supportive regulation) – clearly there is still room for growth.
This is a worry for many Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) – who have seen the impact that MVNOs have had on the European telecoms market (virtual network operators now have in excess of 16% of total connections).
It is widely thought that MVNO high failure rates are in no small way attributed to failures on the part of regulators – many of whom completely fail to understand the best ways in which to ensure fair and equal terms to smaller companies in the market – and simply do not know how to motivate competition.
However, despite obvious problems throughout the market, Visiongain – a leading business information portal – is predicting that MVNOs are set to gain 150,000 global subscriptions in 2014 – increasing their global subscription levels dramatically.
