About Virgin Mobile
Virgin Mobile UK was a mobile phone service provider operating in the United Kingdom, and was the world's first Mobile Virtual Network Operator, launched in 1999.
Being a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), Virgin Mobile did not maintain its own network infrastructure, but instead had contracts to use the existing EE network.
In January 2023, Virgin Media confirmed that Virgin Mobile would close and all customers would be moved from Virgin Mobile to O2. Migration began in March 2023 and was completed by the end of August 2023.
