T-Mobile cuts out 537 dealers in wide-ranging cull

T-Mobile has cut 500 indirect dealers after they failed to reach targets set in May this year.

T-Mobile has cut its indirect business by two thirds after a valuation of its channel partners which began in May.

It has also cut 34 direct dealers and 3 business partner as part of the review.

Mobile reported last week that Fone Logistics was dropped as a distribution partner of the network after failing to reach targets set in May by T-Mobile.

T-Mobile national sales manager John Fannon, confirmed that cuts included one distributor partner, 34 direct dealers, 3 business partners and over 500 indirect dealers.

A letter was sent to dealers last Friday who have been kept informed throughout the process.

T-Mobile set clear targets for all its channel partners in May those who did not make the grade have been cut.

Fannon said: ‘We needed to understand who is open for business.’ He said: ‘It actually equates to about 5% of our independent – essentially it means we’re taking non performers out.’

Fannon added: ‘We are still talking to Fone Logistics. We are talking through other opportunities with them for T-Mobile.’
