Brussels, 15 January 2019 – MVNO Europe keeps growing with the addition of sipgate Wireless. Together with its affiliate sipgate GmbH, sipgate Wireless offers integrated mobile and fixed solutions to businesses and consumers.

MVNO Europe is pleased to further expand by welcoming sipgate Wireless among its members. Based in Düsseldorf and active in Germany for more than nine years, sipgate Wireless operates as a full MVNO. Its very high-quality mobile solutions are marketed by its affiliate Sipgate GmbH to serve both businesses and consumers using the brands “sipgate team” and “simquadrat”. With better telephony as declared goal, sipgate Wireless distinguishes itself by offering transparent and personalized services to its customers.

With sipgate Wireless among its members, MVNO Europe will keep fighting to eliminate all the existing barriers that prevent MVNOs from competing and innovating on European markets. Above all, and especially in light of the emergence of 5G technologies, this implies securing fair and non-discriminatory network access conditions for MVNOs in all European countries. In parallel, in order to fulfil the needs of telecommunications customers, MVNO Europe and sipgate Wireless will work together on reducing EU wholesale roaming caps as well as on finding common grounds with some handset manufacturers on technical issues.

Jacques Bonifay, chairman of MVNO Europe, said that “with 5G auction procedures approaching in several European countries, if we are to secure a regulatory landscape allowing for competition, innovation and benefiting all end-users, it is of utmost importance to guarantee that MVNOs have fair network access”.
