A Trusted Partner for Service Providers

As industry-trusted professionals, we shaped our vision into reality, and we help telecom businesses, utility providers and other verticals do the same.

We Have First-Hand Experience in the Business

Here at Effortel, we know that being a service provider is complex business. We own MVNOs ourselves, which provides us with crucial experience and insights into the needs of our MVNO clients. We have also been a reliable MVNE partner for key industry operators for over 15 years, providing state-of-the-art solutions and services.

Our proven track record and combination of expertise and technical know-how enables us to help service providers to grow fast and expand their offering and market share. It is our deep understanding of customer needs that sets us apart from our competitors.

Our Story

Effortel was founded in Brussels, Belgium in 2006 by our CEO Arkadi Panitch with the idea of launching a global brand. At the time, the concept of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) had begun influencing regulators to demonopolize and deregulate the hold of traditional Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) head on the telecommunications market. Also, telecommunications legislation was being improved in favor of MVNOs, providing us with the perfect timing to enter the global arena of telecommunications.

We began by partnering up with Carrefour retailer and launching the Carrefour Mobile brand in their worldwide operations. Within the year, we had 4 successful running operations in Belgium, Italy, Poland, and Thailand with approximately 285 000 customers. In 2008, we established ourselves as a Mobile Virtual Network Enabler (MVNE). This allowed us to share our knowledge and expertise with MVNOs who lacked the know-how on how to enable their own operations. Since then we have deployed and have been running a centralized, cloud-based, real-time intelligent network system.
