The UK’s Post Office will launch a new mobile phone network through EE later this year

It’s been rumored for a while already, but the UK’s Post Office has now confirmed that it’s to launch a new mobile phone network later this year.

The state-owned Post Office already offers its own home-phone and broadband service, so a move to become a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), piggybacking off EE, may not be entirely surprising. It’s also in line with other high street brands, such as Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco, which offer their own mobile phone services.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

The Post Office’s new service will launch in the autumn, and will be available online and through 50 branches, before being introduced nationwide by the end of the year.
