Cell C CEO Jose Dos Santos announced they have signed a mobile virtual network operator agreement with Lycamobile.
Lycamobile is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) which runs on carriers around the world, including Telstra in Australia, Vodafone in Germany and Italy, O2 in the UK, and T-Mobile in the US.
The MVNO is expected to launch in South Africa on Cell C’s network in June/July 2017, said Dos Santos.
He could not provide further details about Lyca’s offering.
Cell C is the only conduit through which Lyca will offer its services, he said.
