Virgin Media extends MVNO deal with EE
Virgin Media has struck a deal with EE which will see the continuation of the pair’s Mobile Virtual Network Operator agreement.
Since 1999, Virgin Media has utilised the massive network, now run by EE, for mobile phone services.
Customers with a deal through Virgin Media for a contract, pay as you go phone or SIM Only all use the EE network, even thought their deal is not directly with that network.
EE has pioneered the introduction of 4 superfast 4G mobile broadband services in the UK, and also has an extensive customer base through its ownership of the Orange and T-Mobile brands. Its industry presence and growing reputation are likely factors in Virgin Media’s decision to extend the deal.
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.”
Gerry McQuade, chief marketing officer of non-consumer at EE, also commented: “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.”
