Help Mobile, Austrian, MVNO
The 37th MVNO has launched on the Austrian market – Help Mobile. The charity MVNO will donate every month EUR 1 per active SIM card as well as its entire profit to needy families. Andrea Pichler, the wife of Franz Pichler, owner of the company Mass Response, which had established the MVNO Spusu, is the backer of the new MVNO, reported Der Standard. Help Mobile, like Spusu, will operate on the network of Hutchison Drei Austria.
To start, Help Mobile will offer three tariff options: Help 10 with 1,000 minutes, 500 SMS and 10 GB data for EUR 14.90 a month; Help 20 with 1,000 minutes, 500 SMS and 20 GB data for EUR 19.90 a month; and a data tariff Help Data offering unlimited data at up to 30 Mbps for EUR 27.90 a month. The tariffs work also in EU roaming with no extra charging for calls.
With each SIM card, Help Mobile offers also the Family Zone, a child protection tool to regulate children’s access to the internet.
The entry of another charity MVNO Goood, operating on the A1 network, is planned for the end of September. The operator will give 10 percent of subscriptions to charity organisations and customers will decide which projects will be supported. Goood was started by Claudia Winkler, a former Marketing Director at the Telekom Austria Group.
