  • To acquire 50 million customers by 2014
  • To be a benchmark MVNO globally
  • To provide the broadest distribution and highest quality
  • Services at the lowest cost in the mobile international calling market.
In the seven years since the business was founded, our objective and strategy was simple and unyielding: we wanted to become the largest low-cost international call provider by geography in the world.

Over the past 18 months we have invested heavily in expanding our geographical coverage. The addition of Germany to our portfolio in 2012 ensured that we have greater coverage of the European market than any other mobile operator. A subsequent move into Ireland and Portugal served to embed our footprint across Europe and avail the service to over 80 per cent of the EU population.

Perhaps most significantly, 2013 saw us activate our biggest market launch to date: introducing the service to the US with the promise to bring an unparalleled level of cost and quality of service to American consumers. Set to double our business revenue over the next financial year, Lycamobile USA launched in March as the country’s first full MVNO, operational in 18 states with plans to expand this to 25 states in 18 months.

We are now the largest low-cost international call provider by geography in the world, but we won’t stop there. We have identified eight further territories in which we would like to be operating by February 2014 to include Canada and markets in Latin America and Asia. A 5,000 strong global team this February celebrated reaching our target of €1 billion turnover for 2012/2013. We fully expect these plans to give rise to the doubling of this figure by year end 2014.
