Press Release

Three UK have agreed a long-term, multi-million-pound, strategic partnership with global communications platform as a service provider Pareteum.

The partnership will see Pareteum enabling the launch of new mobile brands and IoT services on Three’s award-winning UK network, including 5G, through the Pareteum Experience Cloud communications platform.

The agreement is a significant part of Three Wholesale’s ambition to become the UK’s number one wholesale partner as we launch the UK’s fastest 5G network.

Wholesale subscribers currently account for around 12% of the 11.7 million subscribers on the Three network. The advent of 5G, which will grow Three’s network capacity 28-fold over the next few years, means that Three is the ideal partner for MVNOs of any size looking to grow their business.

Three’s Wholesale offering includes MVNOs, fully managed telecoms as a service platform, internet of things connectivity, private networks and big data.

Three UK’s Christian Harris, Head Of Digital Entertainment, and Gillian Tomlinson, Director Of Data And Analytics, will be amongst the speakers at the Total Telecom Congress on the 29-30 October 2019. Find out more at

We are really excited about the opportunity that this partnership delivers. We have significant growth ambition in the IoT and Enterprise Communications markets and Pareteum brings global scale and proven capabilities.”
