Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

Easymobile - the no-frills, discount mobile outfit - has managed to sign up 15,000 punters since it launched the service back in March.

Boss Frank Rasmussen said he was "pleased with the results" adding that the mobile outfit had "successfully made an impact on the UK mobile market".

"By the end of June we passed the 15,000 customer mark and we remain optimistic that we will continue following our business plan going forward - not least as customers are proving to be very loyal and satisfied with our service," he said.

In May easyMobile denied that it was a flop after a report said it had only signed up 5,000 punters.

When it launched in March Easymobile - backed by easyJet entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou - claimed to have sparked a "mobile war" in the UK amid claims that this new cut-price approach would shake up the sector. ®
