Also included is go-to-market plan, distribution and replenishment plans, comparison of MVNO's and more. The major benefit of this report is to assist in the development of an MVNO launch and to help validate existing plans.

Launching a MVNO involves a lot of careful planning and an understanding of the competitive threats and opportunities.

This includes rate structures of the retail minus and cost plus models, the pros and cons of each, and how to implement them.

Also includes is an example Service Level Agreement (SLA), modeled from real life operational MVNO SLAs, which can be customized and built upon to meet the needs of their service management requirements.

In addition, the MVNO Business Plan includes The Future of Virtual Network Operators, which will help the reader understand the evolution of VNOs and identify future business opportunities in areas such as the Internet of Things, Virtual Reality, and Wearables.
