Are more MNOs starting to consider shared mobile networks? | PolicyTracker: Feb 2019
"An increasing number of mobile operators are proposing a pragmatic solution for the lack of investment in 5G and high network rollout costs: sharing networks. "

"Spain’s fourth largest mobile network operator (MNO) MásMóvil and regional network provider Euskaltel recently struck a deal to build a 5G pilot shared network."

"Last year, South Africa’s Vodacom and Telkom also reached a network sharing deal. The agreement will allow Telkom customers to roam on Vodacom’s 2G, 3G, and 4G networks from June 2019."

"But Mexico seems to be ahead of almost everyone, as only Rwanda has built a national wholesale mobile network before.

Red Compartida (‘shared network’ in Spanish)–which went live in March 2018–offers broadband to all of Mexico’s telecom carriers, in a move to expand mobile coverage, lower consumer prices and reduce 5G deployment costs."

"Although shared networks remain relatively rare, sharing infrastructure is becoming more common among mobile providers. O2 and Vodafone have just signed an extension to their current network sharing deal in the UK to cover 5G."
