The One Point signed an MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) agreement with Hutchinson Whampoa (the UK 3 network) to deliver its innovative One Network solution. It sees a landline SIM being developed for the first time.
Martin Lauer said; This landline SIM will allow mobile users to be contacted via a landline number activated with the SIM, not just via a forwarding system that carries expensive landline to mobile charges. The services can be accessed on a pre-pay or post-pay basis, all on 28-day rolling contracts. The service has been very successful to date; we are looking to roll out to over 400 mobile dealers in the South of England within the next month.
He added; This is a real game-changer, and its applications are wide and varied. We are very excited about this proposition finally getting to the mass market.
