Mobile radio network sharing

Publié le par Jean Arnal

Important move by two mobile giants. Vodafone and Orange announced they will share their radio access networks (RANs) in the UK. Of course, such a move will not be completed short term, but will be gradually implemented over a number of years. Rationales behing the move are named better efficiencies, reduced capital, lower opex, and better coverage. So they are in a win-win agreement, but competition between them will be unchanged as they do not share their core networks.

It is likely such agreements would multiply over coming years.
