About us

Who are we?

MBNL has been a global benchmark for network sharing joint ventures since 2007 when mobile operators EE and Three UK signed a ground breaking network consolidation agreement.

Through MBNL and by sharing associated costs of the Radio Access Network, Three and EE enjoy substantial savings enabling them to re-invest in the network and continue to compete and innovate in the consumer marketplace.

Our talented and experienced team continuously balance the need for network development with exceptional network performance. We make sure that EE and Three’s customers can make and receive calls wherever and whenever they like, and browse the internet without delay or interruption.
