Race Telecom launches MVNO for kids – Denmark

Race Telecom A/S, a privately-held telecom company based in Denmark, has launched a new MVNO service called WiGOMO in Denmark, which will target kids in the 5 to 10 age group. The operation is hosted by TDC.

WiGOMO will offer its customers a combination of a mobile phone with built-in GPS and an online solution enabling parents to define rules on the usage of the phone. Parents can access a website and define the rules for the time of usage together with incoming and outgoing calls and SMS. Parents can also access the data on the usage pattern of the child’s phone. The concept aims at introducing children to mobile telephony in a safe manner.
