Post Office to launch mobile network on EE from the autumn

The Post Office has entered the mobile market using MVNO services from EE

The Post Office has become the latest entrant into the mobile market, as it looks to offer services on top of EE’s network from the autumn.

The Post Office, now a private concern, said it is confident that it can deliver a high-quality service to customers thanks to its large presence on UK high streets, as Martin George, chief commercial officer at the Post Office, explained.

“Launching our own mobile service, using EE’s network, is a significant milestone in the Post Office’s journey of change and a testament to our continuing efforts to offer more essential services for our customers,” he said.

“Our network of over 11,500 branches, combined with our online and call centre presence, gives us the perfect platform to become one of the most credible providers of mobile services in the market.”

Mobile services will initially be launched in 50 Post Office branches, online and over the phone, before a network-wide rollout to all branches later in the year.

The Post Office will face tough competition as numerous mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) are already operating in the market, such as Tesco and The Co-operative.

Nevertheless the deal is another good win for EE, which hosts several MVNOs including Asda, as well as providing mobile services for BT’s staffV3 contacted EE for comment on the deal but had received no reply at the time of publication.

The Post Office is no stranger to providing technology services, and it has been offering broadband for several years.
