Our History

Since our foundation in 2012, we’ve created an innovative, flexible network, fully virtualised and distributed, with a global footprint. We’re constantly extending our boundaries, through our own developments and best-in-class partnerships.

Innovative. Virtual. Flexible. Scalable.

We built our network from the ground up, to deliver global services, with the highest levels of security and flexibility.

We’ve enjoyed years of growth, enriching our portfolio each year. Our network has expanded, establishing over 1100 connections, ensuring the widest possible coverage. We cover all access technologies and are investing in new 5G offers.

Our offers are based on continuous evolution and investment, as well as key partnerships to bring complementary solutions to our portfolio. Find out more about our key milestones and how we contribute to the mobile community, with a world-leading solution and the most extensive global network.
