3 dealers positive about business plan
Dealers emerging from 3's business briefing on Tuesday gave its new business tariffs a qualified thumbs up.
The TalkShare plans offer 4,000 minutes for £169 which one dealer termed 'pretty exciting'. But dealers were disappointed that 3 will not follow the lead of T-Mobile and Orange by offering users free insurance. It also wants to restrict accounts to 20 handsets. 'They are aiming very much at the Soho user. It's a shame they have taken the best parts of what other networks do and coupled it with the great value.
'3 being 3 they are quite bullish and told us this is what you are going to sell.'
The packages are not expected to be available for sale until September.
