Post Office plans its own mobile phone service for the UK

The Post Office says it’ll launch its own UK mobile phone service in the autumn as a ‘virtual’ network using EE’s service. Initially the service will be available from 50 branches, online and over the phone, before a national rollout of handset sales and customer service into all 11,500 branches later this year.

Martin George, Chief Commercial Officer at the 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. Launching our own mobile service, using EE’s network, is a significant milestone in the Post Office’s journey of change and a testament to our continuing efforts to offer more essential services for our customers.”

The Post Office already offers fixed-line phone and broadband services along with travel money, travel insurance, savings and mortgages.
