Securing Lebara’s agreement with Vodafone

Piran Partners originated and negotiated the partnership between Lebara Mobile and Vodafone. We communicated Lebara’s proposition to the mobile network operators, managed competitive offers, negotiated the heads of terms and the final contract on Lebara’s behalf.

Within 12 months this became the most successful MVNO partnership for Vodafone UK, exceeding their partnerships with Asda (WalMart) and BT. Both Lebara and Vodafone acknowledge Piran Partners’ significant role in setting solid foundations upon which this partnership has flourished.

Launching new MVNEs and MVNAs

As MVNO markets mature and opportunities get smaller, the benefits of an aggregator become compelling to mobile operators. Piran Partners has structured three MVNA deals in the UK with T-Mobile, Vodafone and Three on behalf of clients. And helped establish Zain’s wholesale enablement platform.

We have also advised numerous clients on the commercial and technical challenges of building a successful aggregation business.
