In an interview last month Computerworld asked the late 2degrees CEO Eric Hertz if the mobile telco would consider an MVNO partnership, similar to what Tesco has created in the UK.
"Most MVNOs are added to existing product line and the numbers are pretty low. An MVNO still has to have distribution, a recognised brand, customer care, credit, it has to be out in all the markets across the country," he told us.
"Where do they invest their growth dollars -- do you invest in that kind of relationship with your customers for their mobile service? Or do you expand your store footprint.
"We've been approached and it's something we'd consider."
