Spanish cableco Grupo Corporativo ONO has confirmed that more than one million people have now signed up for its mobile voice services, which it offers as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) over the infrastructure owned by Telefonica Espana (Movistar).

As noted in TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, ONO launched full mobile voice services as a virtual operator in September 2009, though it is arguably within the last twelve months that it has seen success; in announcing this latest subscriber milestone, the cableco confirmed that in the last twelve months it had added more than 600,000 mobile voice accesses. Meanwhile, as previously reported by CommsUpdate, in May 2013 ONO renewed its MVNO contract with Movistar, with it claiming at that date that the updated deal between the two companies will last for two and a half years; financial details were not disclosed, however.
