There remains much potential for MVNO success in the Middle East. Once regulation is resolved there is likely to be great interest in entering this market and we look forward to seeing what progress has been made at the next event, in September 2013! In the meanwhile follow the MVNOs Industry Summit Series blog for industry news from the Middle East.
