UK Post Office gets into mobile phones

The UK Post Office plans to launch its own mobile services network as part of its modernisation programme. Desperate to enter the 21st century, the Post Office plans to offer mobile services to customers “seeking greater value” than what they can get from the big telecoms groups.

The Post Office has teamed up EE to provide the network. Post Office handsets and customer services will be launched in the autumn this year through 50 branches, online and over the telephone.

Martin George, chief commercial officer at the Post Office, said: “Our network of over 11,500 branches combined with our online, and call centre presence, gives us the perfect platform to become one of the most credible providers of mobile services in the market.”

He said that his research says that people are seeking greater value from their mobile supplier with one in three of those surveyed saying they intended to move away from one of the mainstream providers for their next service.

“We believe we are in an ideal position to offer a genuine alternative with over a third also saying they would consider us as their mobile provider,” he said.
