Orlando, FL – July 25, 2022 – NCTC, the National Content & Technology Cooperative,
representing 700+ independent communications service providers who connect one third of North American and U.S. Territory households and businesses to the world,
today announced it is closing in on a first-of-its-kind set of partner agreements to deliver
new MVNO cellular services to members.
It expects members to be ready to launch these customer bundled discount services by
Q4. In order to deliver seamless, branded billing, tiered bundle discounts with
broadband, and mobile device sales and services, multiple suppliers will be incorporated
into one program that is invisible to member subscribers. These agreements, together,
will deliver significant discounts off national rates along with multiple plans and cost
savings, while allowing members to retain their own brand.
Mobile services are important to NCTC’s members, which also provide broadband and
video to 40+ million end-users in North America and the US Territories. As wireless
services continue to evolve and see widespread adoption, the new MVNO deal will help
NCTC’s members drive revenue and remain competitive, while delivering a plethora of
new options for their savvy consumers.
NCTC members who participate as an MVNO will have flexibility in the software and
hardware they utilize, helping them tailor services based on their requirements and meet
consumer demand for more choice.
“Mobile is increasingly crucial to many of our members who are seeking more options to
meet the unique needs of their customers,” said Jared Baumann, VP of Technology
Innovation at NCTC. “Like other benefits of NCTC membership, our new MVNO
agreements will harness our collective buying power to drive value and ease of entry for

Baumann. “Our new MVNO agreements align perfectly with the other group-based
savings members already receive. Based on this, operators will be able to offer innovative
new bundles and service offerings to their customers.”
