MVNO Services in Iran

MVNO Services in Iran

An MVNO is a wireless communications services provider that does not own the mobile network infrastructure over which it provides services to customers but in fact, pays a fee to the network operators.

The Communications Regulatory Authority issued a call for registration last winter, following which the applications of 51 firms were processed and they had to submit the required documents by the August 21 deadline. Up to now, 52 applicants have registered for an MVNO license, including 32 foreign operators, 13 investment companies, and seven banks.

In the next 10 years, it has been predicted that Mobile Virtual Network operators will have 13 million subscribers and hold 15% share of the mobile market by the end of the 10th year.
