The Russian cable operator Akado plans to become an MVNO by the end of this year, employing Tele2’s network.
According to Kommersant, quoting Akado’s president Sergei Nazarov, this will be one of the ways of retaining and improving the quality of its subscriber base.
The company will undertake tests until the end of 2018 and expects to connect several thousand subscribers next year.
Many of Akado’s competitors are already MVNOs. They include Moscow-based MGTS, which has offered mobile services under its own brand since 2014; Rostelecom; and Transtelecom.
