Velotel Mobile Network launches in the UK to cater to the cycling public, enabled by Transatel

The UK mobile network market saw the launch this week of Velotel, a new MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) offering that has built its mobile plans around the needs of the UK cycling public. Key to the Velotel proposition are well structured voice and data plans and the inclusion of roam-like-at-home across the EU in all plans, all of which have been enabled by the leading European MVNE, Transatel (subsidiary of NTT.ltd).

At the heart of Velotel is their cycling partner network, which gives customers access to benefits such as retail discounts, free insurance products, cycling specific apps, and preferential access to races and events across Europe. Velotel runs on the UK’s largest 5G network and offers customers four simple plans that give maximum value and peace of mind to manage their spend. All plans are month to month, with no unnecessary lock ins. Customers have full self-service control via a well-integrated online store, where they can sign up, upgrade, downgrade, or cancel their plans in a few clicks.

Velotel needed to offer its customers access to a top-rated network, and superb voice and data packages. We found Transatel to be the ideal partner to provide these services. An added benefit was the link between group company NTT and the cycling industry[1]. We look forward to partnering with Transatel to continue to develop products and services that are well aligned to our customers’ unique requirements.” says Jody Forrester, Velotel CEO.

Transatel is proud to be the enablement partner of Velotel, providing network and access solutions, allowing Velotel’s customers to connect on the UK’s largest 5G network. We congratulate Velotel on their launch and look forward to working together over the coming years.” adds Jacques Bonifay, CEO of Transatel and President of MVNO Europe association.
