Virgin Media Business has launched its first mobile service for public and private sector organisations through EE, the UK's first 4G mobile network, aiming to offer superfast speeds to more than 60% of the UK.
The business-grade 4G service will be offered as part of Virgin Media Business' complete range of telecoms services. The introduction of 4G services through EE is hoped to enable customers to benefit from Virgin Media Business' fixed line expertise, now available with the fastest mobile signals around.
For businesses looking to reduce costs and move towards fixed and mobile convergence, Business Mobile from Virgin Media Business is now an option. New and existing customers will have the opportunity to integrate their fixed and mobile communications through one supplier, ending the need to manage a different provider for each service, saving money, time and complexity, according to Virgin Media Business.
Business Mobile from Virgin Media Business provides mobile voice and data connectivity and comes bristling with features including: mobile email services; the ability to connect your desk phone and mobile; online portals for support and billing; and telephone support for users and customer administrators. The service is available on the latest range of leading 4G handsets, including Samsung, Windows, Android and BlackBerry devices. The service is also available in 3G on EE's network.
Duncan Higgins, director of products and marketing at Virgin Media Business, said: "We're simplifying things for our customers by being the single supplier for all their telecoms needs. EE's 4G experience over the past ten months clearly illustrates the benefits of the technology and their 4G network coverage is unrivalled in the UK. With 4G, you can get more done, work flexibly and bring your professional applications together on a single device. Remote working is now the norm and adding 4G to our services increases our customers' options for working in a way that suits them.
"CIOs up and down the country have told us they believe mobile communications will be essential for the future of their organisation, but they also need a base of operations. In response, our new service builds on our existing connectivity, convergence and collaboration services while enabling businesses to give staff safe, secure mobile access to the tools and data they need."
