Bertrand Salomon sheds some light on the Medialaan/Unleashed project confirming Transatel as the leading European enabler.
Transatel Cofounder and Deputy CEO
The origins of the project are what make it special. In September 2016, the European Commission decided that Medialaan (today, Unleashed) should achieve technical independence to compete effectively as a Full MVNO. This meant migrating its two successful MVNOs, Jim Mobile and Mobile Vikings, from a Light to a Full architecture.
Transatel was already the leading European enabler at that time and had some understanding of the Belgian market. We were active there as an MVNO ourselves in 2002: it seems we were the country's first MVNO ever! Most importantly, though, we benefit from a Full architecture, with our core network, so our clients can achieve the independence they seek.
Mainly, that the migration of the subscriber base under way at this time is
running smoothly, that we're on schedule, and in line with the targets. In
short, that what we announced more than a year ago is
actually being delivered!
Technically complex projects such as these bring along their fair share of surprises, but we've been up to the task. We do have exceptional teams and I extend my thanks to them. I'm also grateful for the encounter with two beautiful brands, Jim Mobile and Mobile Vikings, each with a strong personality and territory. They're wonderful examples of dedicated mobile offers, whose marketing and success is based on the building of an identity via a community of like-minded individuals. It's a truly modern concept and the best foundation imaginable for a mobile offer.
