Virgin Media Business and EE have teamed up to launch 4G for public and private sector businesses.
The 'first ever business grade 4G service' will be provided through the UK’s largest operator and will cover 60% of the population. The service was designed to encourage new and existing customers to converge their fixed and mobile communications services, hence saving money. Users can ‘connect desk phone and mobile seamlessly’, and enjoy access to features such as portal billing services and mobile email. Customers can use the 4G network with the latest handsets provided by Virgin, while EE customers can use the service on 3G.
Director of products and marketing at Virgin Media, Duncan Higgins, said: ‘We’re simplifying things for our customers by being the single supplier for all their telecoms needs. EE’s 4G experience over the past ten months clearly illustrates the benefits of the technology and their 4G network coverage is unrivalled in the UK. With 4G, you can get more done, work flexibly and bring your professional applications together on a single device. Remote working is now the norm and adding 4G to our services increases our customers’ options for working in a way that suits them.
‘CIOs up and down the country have told us they believe mobile communications will be essential for the future of their organisation, but they also need a base of operations. In response, our new service builds on our existing connectivity, convergence and collaboration services while enabling businesses to give staff safe, secure mobile access to the tools and data they need.’
