The mobile telecommunications industry is constantly evolving, with virtual network operators playing an increasingly important role in providing affordable and innovative services to consumers worldwide. One company at the forefront of this trend is Lebara, an international telecommunications group that has been steadily expanding its global reach through strategic partnerships.

The company has recently announced a move into the growing market of Africa – facilitated by a brand licensing agreement with Nigerian-based VAS2Nets Technologies – which marks a significant milestone in the company's mission to bridge the digital divide and connect people across the globe. By leveraging VAS2Nets’ local expertise and combining it with Lebara's proven track record of success, the partnership aims to revolutionise the mobile experience for consumers in Nigeria, one of the world's fastest-growing mobile markets.

"Our global partnership programme is going from strength-to-strength as we proactively seek out and engage with established and highly regarded local businesses to operate our brand in new territories,” says Stephen Shurrock, CEO of Lebara. “Our new collaboration with VAS2Nets represents a strategic step forward in our mission to connect people across the globe and bridge the digital divide. We are confident that we can deliver exceptional value and an unparalleled service to Nigerian consumers.”

This collaboration exemplifies Lebara's approach to expanding its footprint: seeking out established and highly regarded local businesses to operate its brand in new territories. By doing so, the company can tap into deep market knowledge and tailor its offerings to meet the unique needs and preferences of each region.

At its core, Lebara’s value proposition revolves around providing a better alternative to established players in the market. With a commitment to affordability, reliability, and exceptional customer service, the company aims to empower individuals to stay connected with the people and services that matter most, all while delivering a smarter and more cost-effective mobile experience.

As emerging markets continue to open their doors to Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs), Lebara sees a tremendous opportunity to grow its partnership program and extend its brand into new regions. By partnering with local entities, the company can navigate regulatory landscapes, cultural nuances and consumer preferences more effectively, while also contributing to the socio-economic development of the communities it serves.

"We are proud to partner with Lebara, a global leader in mobile telecommunications, to launch and operate the Lebara MVNO business in Nigeria,” comments Ayo Stuffman, CEO of VAS2Nets. “By combining our local expertise with Lebara's proven track record of success, we aim to revolutionise the mobile experience for Nigerians and drive positive change in the telecommunications industry.”
