The UK Post Office has today announced that it will be teaming up with the UK based carrier, EE in order to launch its own mobile service.
The service will launch in the UK this Autumn and will allow users to sign up for a contract online and at one of 50 Post Offices throughout the UK.
The Post Office says that it will then expand the new mobile phone service other Post Offices in the UK, expanding to the full total of 11,500 Post Office branches in 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.”
Up to now, the Post Office hasn’t announced any pricing schemes for the phone service, or how it’s plans might work, however we expect to hear more soon.
