  • Simple mobile has just been bought out by Tracfone – how can people replicate this exit market success?
  • Virgin Mobile has embarked on a huge expansion plan in Latam – hear about which markets they are targeting and business opportunities to be involved
  • Clearwire/Sprint – will the lightsquared ‘partner’s’ take up the lightsquared slack or will cable or satellite operators step in?
  • Verizon/AT&T/T-Mobile/Sprint – what are their wholesale plans? Are Verizon stepping up their wholesale game? Meet the new head of MVNO at T-Mobile
  • Voyager – the new MVNO from a 22 year old. We take a look at the MVNO USA newbees in the market!
