Sky Becomes a Quadruple-Play Service Provider
U.K.-based Sky is about to enter the U.K. mobile service provider market, becoming a mobile virtual network operator using the Telefónica UK network in 2016.
The move will make Sky a quadruple-play services provider, as it already sells fixed line high speed access, fixed network voice and video entertainment.
Sky is the second-largest provider of consumer high speed access, with more than five million customers. Sky also sells a triple-play package to 40 percent of all its customers.
Telefónica UK will give Sky wholesale access to 2G, 3G and 4G services over its nationwide network.
