Last year HMD Global launched a global roaming service (covering 120 countries), that was HMD Connect. This is actually meant for travelers because it’s less useful for those at home. We are now talking about HMD Mobile.
HMD Mobile is an MVNO, a “mobile virtual network operator”, meaning that your phone will actually connect to cells of another carrier. In this case, the service launches in the UK in a partnership with Britain’s leading 5G carrier (presumably, this means EE).
This MVNO network will go live later this month (in the UK, at least) and will handle everything – voice, text and data (HMD Connect was data-only). A global rollout is in the planning stages.
HMD is leaning into the direct to consumer business that sells through Nokia.com. This means you can pick up a phone and add in an HMD Mobile SIM card and have them delivered to your home. You can know about the HMD Mobile Here.
