EasyMobile preps Germany launch

Ringing the changes

EasyMobile.com - the discount mobile phone outfit backed by easyJet entrepreneur Stelios Haji-Ioannou - is to launch its service in Germany.

As in the UK, easyMobile is piggybacking on T-Mobile's network to provide the service.

Speaking to The Reg today EasyMobile boss Frank Rasmussen declined to say exactly when the service would be launch but confirmed that it would be unveiled before "Christmas".

And like the easyMobile service in the UK, Rasmussen believes its low tariffs and contracts will prove a hit with phone users in Germany.

Germany is set to become the third country to be exposed to easyMobile's brand of mobile service.

In March easyMobile, went live in the UK. A month later the fledgling cellco announced plans to enter The Netherlands in a tie-up with Dutch network operator Telfort.

That service was due to be launched during the summer however that's been put back a few months and is now due to go live later this autumn. ®
