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.
Telefónica UK also is the wholesale supplier for the largest MVNO, Tesco Mobile. The latest move by Sky simply illustrates the fact that the consumer telecom market now is based on triple-play or quadruple-play offers, not discrete services.
