Xiaomi has continued its expansion into all-things-consumer with the launch of its MVNO network “Mi Mobile” in China. The first OEM to launch a carrier, Xiaomi’s mobile network is offering 3GB of LTE data for RMB 59 – which is under $10 – if you sign up to a monthly plan.
The MVNO has just launched and naturally, there’s a lot of questions being asked, including whether you can sign up as a foreign visitor, whether you can reload packages using a non-Chinese credit card and whose network the MVNO will run on. Others have asked whether the network will launch outside of China and at least in this questions, Xiaomi’s mobile strategy suggests they will eventually aim to open the MVNO up in other countries.
