Post Office® selects Transatel as Enabler to launch its MVNO operations in the UK


28thof July 2014, Paris, France– Transatel is proud to announce a new partnership that will support Post Office to deliver a mobile service throughout its 11,500 branches, online and over the phone from autumn this year. The new mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) will leverage Transatel’s award-winning mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA) technical platform and partnership with EE in order to give its customers access to the UK’s biggest network whilst benefitting from the great value for money and transparency offering.


Post Office is Transatel’s twenty-seventh MVNO partner in the UK.  In the last 12 months, Transatel has already launched Phones4U MVNO LIFE Mobile on its MVNE platform, and on its MVNA platform has launched new postpaid MVNOs Pop Mobile and Airwave Smart Mobile, as well as new prepaid MVNOs for Filipino MNO Globe last year, Lomo Mobile in March and the first prepaid SIM card for The Co-operative (The Co-operative Mobile) in April this year. They joined more than 150 enterprise, B2B, B2C, and niche MVNOs who have chosen to partner with Transatel worldwide.


In a challenging economic environment MVNOs need to enter the market as quickly as possible and at a competitive price. With Transatel, the leading Mobile Virtual Network Aggregator, it has never been easier to become an MVNO in the UK, as its off-the-shelf solution significantly reduces the cost and rapidity of entry on the market.


Transatel offers a one-stop-shop for all MVNO requirements in their go-to-market strategy, including airtime procurement, provisioning tools, customisation tools to enhance branding, full real-time prepaid billing capability, CDR generation and post-paid billing services, as well as web tools to enable customer care at a fraction of the cost of bespoke CRM systems. It has also integrated into various top up platforms (web shop or retail platforms) to enable maximum market penetration. Transatel counts several of the world’s leading Mobile Network Operators amongst its customers, including EE, Orange, Mobistar, and Base… and has a strong presence in the UK, Belgium, Switzerland and France.


As a proof of its cutting-edge solution and services, Transatel was named Best MVNA, for a second consecutive year, at the MVNO World Congress in Berlin. Jacques Bonifay said, “As an MVNA, MVNE, and M2M enabler, Transatel has already contributed to the successful launch of more than 150 MVNOs across Europe in the last 10 years. As a result of this, we currently manage more than 650,000 active subscribers on our platform. Our partners can therefore benefit from our unique experience and expertise as a pan-European MVNO and as the UK’s biggest mobile virtual network aggregator (MVNA).”


Bertrand Salomon, Transatel deputy CEO said “The Post Office is the number one mails retailer in the UK and their customers put a huge amount of trust in them for their other services, so I am really honoured that they have trusted Transatel and our award-winning MVNA platform to launch their mobile service in the UK. The rest of the Transatel team and I wish them every success!”


Martin George, Chief Commercial Officer at Post Office, said: “Launching our own mobile service, with the support of Transatel, 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. We are very excited about our ambitious plans in the mobile market and are confident we have chosen the right partners to help us deliver this”
