The German MVNO check 2021

The MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) on average provide a “very good” mobile network.

Aachen, 2021/06/04 - This year, the MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) are once again under scrutiny. Ultimately, the MVNOs access the three existing mobile networks of Telekom, Vodafone and Telefónica, but what performance does the user really get? Together with the connect Magazine, we have analysed how the 17 MVNOs perform when it comes to network performance and 5G availability.

We are pleased to report that all MVNOs achieved the grade "very good" and one operator the grade “good”. Tchibo offers the best network, followed by Mobilcom-Debitel and Nettokom.

Hakan Ekmen, CEO Telecommunication of umlaut: "Congratulations to Tchibo, the winner of our MVNO benchmark with 925 out of 1000 points. Congratulations also to Telefonica, the network operator of the Hamburg-based retail group."
