Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) Market

As of 2015, the global mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) market was led by full MVNOs. The segment accounted for over 60% of the global mobile virtual network operator market revenue in the same year. Since the interface and backbone infrastructure used by full MVNOs is same as that used by mobile network operators, it offers relatively easier interface and hence are preferred. The trend shall continue and the segment is poised to retain its leading position throughout the forecast period 2016 - 2023. Although the reseller model allows a MVNO to offer its own value added services and achieve the benefits of operating under its own brand, it does not allow it to get the ownership of client, SIM, or the infrastructure. One of the positives of adopting the reseller model includes its ability to commence quickly. On the other hand, unlike resellers, service operators offer distinct services that set them apart from mobile service providers. However, due to greater complexity involved in network interfacing and service delivery, mobile network operators either prefer full MVNO or reseller MVNO model over service operator MVNO model.
