Go Mobile launches its own virtual network

Shebang, the company behind the Go Mobile retail chain, is planning its own mobile virtual network. The Go Mobile network will be promoted online and via Go Mobile stores. It’s a prepaid service and, unlike many other MVNOs, will be available with a choice of handsets. Calls are 14p per minute while text messages are 7p each.

Shebang was recently reported to be turning all its remaining retail stores into franchise operations.

That's a lot of scrolling to do... and a pretty unfriendly user experience for anyone reading the news online. Why does it work so badly?
