Talkmobile looking to sign up millionth customer in 2014
Carphone Warehouse's MVNO talkmobile is aiming to double its contract customer base to one million with a push on postpay deals under £20 per month.
The MVNO said its customer base had surged by 200% in 12 months to just over half a million customers. It said its focus for growing the base further would be in pushing budget contracts to cash-conscious consumers. It said high monthly tariffs are stopping the estimated 40% of Britons who do not have a smartphone from upgrading.
Aman Bhachu, managing director of talkmobile, said: 'As a business, we’re committed to giving customers choice, making high-value smartphones affordable so everyone can benefit from the latest technology – something our customers are asking for. Our new suite of deals will get the latest mobile technology into the hands of our customers without breaking the bank.'
