Mobile Vikings Logo

The word is out. City Live is changing the Belgian telecoms landscape by starting up a new mobile operator with a heart for internet.

Mobile Vikings was supposed to be launched in silence today. With an invite based system, we are aiming for a controlled growth path to let the world get used to our model. Instead, Frederik Tibau from Datanews spotted what we were doing, with a host of other coverage on the internet in it’s slipstream:

City Live featured on Techncrunch
