The misguided conception that MVNOs have passed their heyday is unfortunately linked to the high failure rates of many ill-prepared ventures. The MVNO business model has been popular in the last two decades in mature telecom markets, especially in Europe. This popularity has been marred by injudicious strategies and a failure to understand the key elements of sustaining an MVNO. The market potential for establishing a viable MVNO exists; the issue is how to effectively harness it.
