Ryanair Telecom delays mobile telco launch

'Cos fixed line biz too 'fantastic'

Ryanair Telecom - the Irish-owned private company operating under licence from airline Ryanair PLC - has delayed the launch of a new mobile service because take-up of its new fixed-line service has been "fantastic".

The no-frills discount telco opened up for business last month, promising to shake up the Irish market with half-price local and national calls.

At the launch it said it planned to roll-out discount mobile telephone services throughout Europe.

A formal announcement detailing the new mobilephoneco was due to be made today, but a spokeswoman for the company said that the launch of this service has been delayed for a couple of weeks because the company is "busy with the fixed line business". ®
