Yesterday I was delighted to read Canning Fok’s response to the UK telecom industry regulator in the Financial Times.
Canning, if case you are wondering, is a top chap at CK Hutchison Holdings, owners of Three UK.
You can read the letter here — it’s in the ‘letters’ page so a subscription might be required: Guaranteed: Three+O2’s customers will get more and pay less.
The letter is brilliant. I really like the language used. I respond positively to it.
“…stand up to the new Leviathan BT”.
“…not to mention to the old top-of-the-heap predator Vodafone”
I like the commitments made too — including a guarantee of no price rises on minutes, texts or data for 5 years after the merger.
It’s not often you see this level of direct language from an operator. Three has always been refreshingly different, so I for one would like to see how the market responds to a Three+O2 play, provided the newly massive organisation is able to retain the fleet-of-foot innovation we’ve come to expect from Three UK.
I’m still delighted with my Three service!
