Marburg, 9 April 2019 – 3U TELECOM GmbH, a wholly-owned subsidiary of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN DE0005167902), has won its first external customers for its offer of “virtual network operation”. 3U TELECOM makes its Next Generation Network (NGN) available to operators of subscriber or connection networks and offers comprehensive service with permanent quality assurance. This allows customers to concentrate on their core business of customer support and marketing, while transferring the technical handling to 3U TELECOM as an experienced and technologically leading service provider. Among other things, nine operator network identification codes (010xy) of companies belonging to the Westend Management GmbH group based in Langen, Germany, and four network identification operator codes of another group of companies from Frankfurt/Main, Germany, are currently operated in 3U TELECOM’s NGN.
