T-Mobile partners 'positive' about tariff changes
T-Mobile looks set to make a comeback in the indirect channel after an enthusiastic reaction from dealers towards its new tariffs.

At the operator's indirect partner conference on 14 January, T-Mobile MD Richard Moat and national sales manager of independent partners John Fannon outlined plans for the network over the coming year.

Last week, Mobiletoday.co.uk exclusively revealed that the operator is to drop two of its consumer tariffs, Flext and Combi, as part of the move.

Dealers who attended the conference reported that the overall impression given was 'positive'.

One dealer said: 'There were pretty positive vibes and there seems to be more commission available. T-Mobile gave good feedback on the indirect channel's performance over the last year. There is going to be a total re-hash of the tariffs and they also laid out the road map for the coming year.'

Another dealer added: 'They have got good plans and will be simplifying the tariffs and adding boosters to give maximum flexibility.'

Dealers and distributors were also updated on the progress of the T-Mobile and Orange merger. 'The joint venture is moving along and T-Mobile is keeping their own communications open to the indirect market,' said one dealer.

Another dealer added: 'They are looking forward to the joint venture and if it goes ahead, it will be a very positive thing for the UK and it will make Orange and T-Mobile the largest network in the UK - coverage will be fantastic.

'They are waiting for approval and it could be anything from two months to 18 months,
but they are very positive about it taking place. They are not just hanging on and seeing
what happens.'
