New Cell C CEO, Alan Knott-Craig said in an interview on 702, that the company is “about to appoint a second MVNO as far as I know”.
Cell C would not reveal details about the MVNO at this stage. “Unfortunately we cannot disclose any details at this stage, but an announcement will be made in due course,” Cell C said.
Rumours abound that John Holdsworth’s new business AppChat is in discussions with Cell C about a possible MVNO, but Holdsworth could not confirm or deny the rumours as he is ‘under an NDA’ with Cell C.
Knott-Craig pointed out that the MVNO model worked well in some parts of the world, but was a spectacular failure in others.
The new Cell C CEO said that they are definitely not against the MVNO model, but warned that it can be challenging to create a profitable and sustainable MVNO.
