Innovation: Demonstrating the application of pinpoint marketing available through the niche MVNO approach.

This MVNO has focused upon a specific community with an offering that aims to provide a service of high value to soccer supporters. In this particular case the Royal Sporting Club de Charleroi (RSCC)--the soccer team of Charleroi, Belgium, launched its MVNO service in October 2004 with the particular aim of providing relevant and sought-after updates to its fan base.

The MVNO service is run on a day-to-day basis by Transatel--a mobile virtual network enabler (MVNE), with RSCC leveraging its expertise in reaching its base of supporters to offer voice and limited data services (score-updates and various other infotainment services related to the club).

The route provides RSCC with a timely and effective method of communicating with its supporters and enabling greater customer retention. The cost of running the MVNO service is low due to the involvement of the MVNE.
