Back in February, Andy had pointed me to yet another MVNO, called Xero Mobile. Well, now Mike over at Tech Dirt has dug up some serious dirt on these guys.

Apparently some of the guys running this company worked at Gizmondo, a company that was going to be famous for its gaming device, and instead became infamous for a its CEO Stefan Eriksson totaling a million dollar Ferrari. (Sigh, if only cars could pick their drivers…..)

The Register says that former Gizmondo CEO Carl Freer has helped company raise money – by some estimates nearly $300 million. Gizmondo Europe as you might remember is in liquidation, as the Brits would say. A while ago I had remarked that MVNOs are the new CLECs. I am even more convinced – this and most other MVNOS are going to end-up costing people a lot of money.

  1. The new service that this company, Xero Mobile, has to offer will be simply amazing. The savings in costs and usage will surely provide a buzz in the college community. As i hear, they offer such great pricing and service.

  2. Xero Mobile, is a new cost effective company that I would put my trust into. College can be quite expensive and life enchanting. You need a cell phone to survive and enjoy college life, but most wish they could make the bill dissapear. Well Xero is as close as you can get to this wish. Paying your bill for watching ads is the smartest idea I have ever heard for a cell phone company. All major websites use this idea, I don’t see a problem bringing it to your handset. Besides these are high qualiy video ads playing on the cell phone, meaning the handsets must be high-end phones. If they target the right people like college students liek myself, then I dont see any obsticles with the companies existance.

  3. I agree with Aaron…it will save me money…provide great phones…provide EXCELLENT features…and give me money saving promotions…
