Las Vegas, Nevada January 9th, 2024 – News coming out of the 2024 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV this week, National Content & Technology Cooperative has become a member of the Associated Carrier Group.

The NCTC recently announced the development of a program that allows its approximately 700 member companies to easily launch their own MVNO services. With this new program NCTC has developed many strategic partnerships, including access to the most reliable mobile network, operational and marketing support, and to a premium MVNO platform.

The membership with ACG, with their decades of experience and the immediate scale of the two million wireless subscribers that they already represent, jumpstarts the NCTC’s MVNO program by taking advantage of discounted agreements with strategic OEMs in the mobile space. This buying power will encompass the ability for NCTC members to offer more mobile devices and accessories at competitive pricing utilizing ACG’s volume discounts.
