If you want to leverage your market presence and flex your brand equity, why not add a compelling wireless service to your brand? Did you know that 1 million subscribers could potentially add in the order of US $430m annual revenue and US $80m EBITDA in addition to adding significant capital value to your company? It's an opportunity that deserves to be evaluated.

As the flexibility and low cost of the internet impacts on the mobile world, we can help your brand live at the centre of your customer's telecoms future. It's a lucrative and exciting opportunity that takes brand extension to a whole new level.

Your customers already love being wireless; with our help you can own the 'brand space' that allows them to connect. It's a powerful and compelling position to be at the heart, the 'touch point' of your customer's connection.

That connection can be via an internet IP network, GSM, GPRS, 3G, CDMA or WiFi. In your customers' mind, they've got one device, one bill, one brand. One true connection. That's your brand. Imagine how powerful that is. Then think of pushing content, games, applications and services via this new mobile channel.

The potential to cross-sell services and products, using mobile as a sales channel, is just one positive outcome of having a branded wireless offering.

So how big is the MVNO market?

Strategy Analytics forecasts that by 2008, over US $30Bn per year will be flowing into the hands of MVNOs globally. This is the fastest growing global segment of the mobile telephony industry.

In August 2005, the Yankee Group announced that the MVNO market in the US will reach $10.7bn by 2010. IDC believes that the total MVNO subscriber base in Western Europe will grow from 13m in 2005 to more than 47m in 2009. MVNOs are now also starting to gain increased traction in Asia and Africa.
