A fair quantity of individuals reported yesterday that Apple was examining its own MVNO (mobile digital network driver), to come to be, basically, a mobile provider while obtaining parts from various other service providers. You would certainly be paying Apple for your phone calls, messages and information. Fancy.
Its not the first time that Apple geeks have actually thought this was happening, given the MVNO licenses that appeared back in 2011.
Alas, according to a declaration we obtained from an Apple speaker, it’s not occurring:
We have not gone over neither do we have any plans to introduce an MVNO.
That declaration leaves no shake room. So … No MVNO from Apple.
The securities market is reacting to the denial, with the stock down 3 %. I imply, ending up being a mobile service provider is a charming idea, however most likely a waste of time and also money. Our very own Matthew Panzarino, figures it would be smarter to acquire a provider rather compared to roll its very own. Google, on the other hand, is moving on with Task Fi, its MVNO project.
I picture that AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile et cetera are very satisfied to listen to that they won’t be warding off Apple (as well as its weapons of mass advertising and marketing) for wireless consumers. I suggest, despite the fact that the online network that was suggested wouldn’t genuinely be an Apple-built network, customers of Apple products have no worry paying Apple for simply regarding anything.
Sorry Apple followers, communicate and touch a person else.
