Disney Mobile to enter UK market

Apr 29 2006 - 02:14 PM ET | Backpage, MVNO

Disney Mobile hasn't officially launched in the US yet, but the company is already planning an expansion into the UK. Disney teamed up with O2 to provide network coverage in the UK, Sprint Nextel provides the coverage for Disney Mobile US. The US market has seen a surge of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) as of late, but few have a presence outside of the US.

Disney Mobile plans to launch its US service in June. No date was announced for the UK launch.
