Easytel to shut operations – The Netherlands

Easytel Mobile is planning to close its operations owing to fierce competition and pricing pressures. According to a spokesperson, the company has not been able to expand its customer base, which currently stands at less than 5,000. Owing to a low subscriber base, Easytel Mobile has not been able to make enough profit. Easytel started its operations in January last year using KPN’s network.

Subscribers have been sent a letter explaining that they will be able to switch network while keeping their current number. Calls through Easytel Mobile will last until 1 July.
