Why Now?
In early 2004, Europe and developed market started MVNO structure.
There is no proper business model for MVNO to excel. MNO is competing with MVNO due to market is not saturated yet (Subscribers > Population) Technology companies concentrate on selling their network appliances, rather than providing services. Capital intensive for MVNO and gross margin too low to justify investment of over 10-20mil to capture 100,000 subscribers. Time to market may take years to build and develop full network coverage.

In 2010, emergence of Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE)


Cut costs of investing technology CAPEX. Cut monthly overheads of over staffing on technical employees. Matured market is looking for more than just phone calls, SMS and 3G access. Quick time to market.
