Mobile Broadband Network Limited (MBNL) is owned 50/50 by two of the UK's foremost mobile network operators

MBNL is a joint venture company owned by Three UK and EE (previously T-Mobile (UK)). MBNL was formed following the ground breaking network consolidation agreement that was completed on the 18th December 2007.

Between 2008 and October 2010 MBNL undertook the consolidation of the networks. Throughtout this period, MBNL worked with our key suppliers, Ericsson, NSN and BT to deliver the largest consolidated network in the world.

Throughout the consolidation project significant emphasis was placed on minimising customer disruption, and ensuring the capacity of the network grew in line with customer requirements.

The network consolidation project has resulted in customers of Three UK and T-Mobile enjoying the best 3G coverage in the UK, by combining their 3G access networks (the mobile masts and infrastructure that connects to each operator's separate core network) EE and Three UK has created Europe's most extensive high-speed packet access (HSPA) network.
