MVNO and processing partner take steps towards greater involvement
Berwyn, June 20, 2013 – Prepay Nation, a leading provider of international mobile top-up and cross border micropayment services, has forged a partnership with Lycamobile, one of the fastest growing prepaid mobile virtual network operators in the world. The partnership will explore joint activities globally, including top-up processing and availability throughout Prepay Nation’s worldwide retail network.
The partnership comes as Lycamobile, which already operates its virtual networks in 16 countries throughout Europe and Australia sets its sights on the US and Canadian markets. “Our brand strategy is to drive unequalled value, creating low-cost prepaid mobile products for international calling customers,” said Subaskaran Allirajah, Chairman of Lycamobile. “A key component of that strategy is access. We need customers to have convenient access to instant airtime refills, and Prepay Nation is the ideal partner to make that a reality. They have not only an incredibly flexible processing platform, but also a retail distribution network of over 150,000 locations in every corner of North America.”
“We’re confident that partnering with Prepay Nation has helped us hit the ground running, and accelerate our market share growth,” Allirajah added.
Anurag Jain, CEO of Prepay Nation, praised the partnership for its mutual dedication to customer value. “We’re pleased to be working with a forward-thinking MVNO like Lycamobile,” said Jain. “We share a focus on efficient operations and broad market presence, which enables us to bring strong value to the end customer wherever they are. We look forward to exploring opportunities together globally as our partnership progresses.”
