By the end of 2020, there are expected to be more than 9 billion active mobile cellular connections. And with this growth, Mobile Virtual Network operators (MVNO) like Simpel have been challenging traditional mobile network operators to provide SIM-only mobile subscriptions to consumers that have grown wise to overpriced mobiles and plans. For example, many consumers after finishing a 12-24-month contract will keep their phone and turn to the many great pay-as-you-go (PAYG) offers available.
The challenge Simpel faced was clear: deliver cellular connectivity, without frills and with incredible service, to everyone. From there, managing mobile subscriptions through a partnered network was something that required the right collaborator, which is where KORE came in. KORE entered the picture early on as a technology partner that would allow Simpel to focus on their customers, without compromising the strong wireless offering that it planned to deliver. Simpel asked KORE to provide a complete MVNE service.
