The UK post Office has announced that it is launching its own mobile phone service, and the service will rely on the mobile network of the UK’s largest 4G carrier, EE.
The new Post Office mobile phone service will be launched in the UK this autumn, and you will be able to sign up to a Post Office mobile contract online and also at 50 Post Offices throughout the UK.
Martin George, Chief Commercial Officer at Post Office, said: “Our research tells us that people are seeking greater value, 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 (36%) also saying they would consider us as their mobile provider. This is a fantastic vote of confidence in the Post Office brand – voted one of the most trusted brands in the UK.
The company then intends to expand their new mobile phone service to other Post Office throughout the UK, there are a total of 11,500 Post Office branches in the UK.
As yet there are no details on how much the company will charge for their new UK mobile phone service, although it will need to be priced competitively to compete with the existing players in the market.
