The People’s Operator (TPO), a UK Based Charitable mobile network has announced that they intend on launch its first contract and Sim-only deals in Q1 and has inked a new partner deal with the Childrens’ Heart Federation.
When the MVNO launched, it had already agreed to work with Childline and the NSPCC as its charitable partners and added unions Unite and GMB.
The operator, which uses Everything Everywher’s network and Transatel as its MVNE, launched in November as a Pay-As-You Go MVNO and they donates 10% of a consumer’s bill to an organisation or charity of their choice with an additional incentive of an annually donation of 25% of the companies profits to charities, including the NSPCC and Childline, via an independent charity, the TPO Foundation.
TPO is also targeting the business sector. Companies can fulfill their CSR commitments with 10% of all call, text and data spend directed to their nominated cause. Franks said: ‘We are creating an ecosystem of partners we can collate and use as a distribution channel. The unions and the NSPCC, for example, have huge membership bases.’
The MVNO is also targeting schools and colleges. Franks said the MVNO would consider a wide range of partnerships. ‘As long as the end game is to support good causes we will look at it. We do not want to be seen as a niche player. Our aim is to be a big player in the telco market. We are built to be lean and profitable whilst supporting good causes. We are not going to compete with Lycamobile or Lebara but we think we are keenly priced.’
