UK virtual mobile network Ovivo Mobile has closed, affecting what’s thought to be tens of thousands of customers.
The network has posted a message on its website that says “We are very sad to announce that for reasons beyond our control, OVIVO Mobile is closing down on the evening of Wednesday 19th March 2014.”
