Virtual Telecom Operators Danycom.Mobile And MCN Telecom Are Merging
Virtual Telecom operators Danycom. Mobile and MCN Telecom have signed an agreement on their intention to combine technologies and subscriber base under the business model of cost-revenue sharing, Danycom.Mobile said in a statement.
"Following the agreement, operators take the necessary actions to port Danycom.Mobile subscribers to the MCN Telecom operator's network, which, in turn, confirms its readiness to provide mobile communication services to the transferred subscribers. Expenses on infrastructure resources, technical support for subscribers, promotion and sale of services, as well as revenues, are distributed under the terms of the relevant agreements that are at the final stage of negotiations," the report says.
Operators combine technological and financial resources to create a major player in the mobile market, as well as to minimize infrastructure costs and increase revenue from communication services and additional products and services. The parties do not disclose the financial side of the agreement. At the same time, Vladislav Deminsky, development Director of the Danycom group of companies, clarified that for subscribers, the transition from one network to another would be without loss in service quality, the company will retain the brand, and the tariff plans will remain the same.
"We see this strategic partnership as a major breakthrough in building a unique digital ecosystem in line with the best global trends and practices. DANYCOM, as an IT company with many years of experience, has expertise in software development, and MCN Telecom is the developer of a Telecom platform for providing communication services. Our cooperation will significantly expand the presence of the combined businesses both within the country and in foreign markets, offering customers the most modern IT solutions. We have some developments in this direction, but the situation this year related to COVID did not allow us to implement them. As part of the integration, we transfer to our partner unique technologies of the A2P platform, all user interfaces, our own marketing services for providing digital advertising services, and CPA networks. We plan to implement a seamless portation of DANYCOM.Mobile subscriber numbers in early October of this year. For subscribers, the transition from one network to another will be as easy as possible without loss of service quality. The company will keep the brand, and the tariff plans will also remain attractive," comments Vladislav Deminsky, development Director of the DANYCOM group of companies.
"Our cooperation will significantly expand the presence of the combined businesses both within the country and in foreign markets, offering customers the most modern IT solutions," he added.
