Manx Telecom FIRST to offer businesses inclusive UK and EU roaming

Manx Telecom has launched a new range of SmartCorp mobile tariffs for business, offering outstanding value for making calls and using data, both on the Island and whilst travelling abroad. It means that the company is the FIRST Isle of Man operator to offer its business customers inclusive UK and EU mobile roaming and the FIRST to include completely unlimited shared allowances of on-Island network minutes, texts and data.

SmartCorp provides shared allowances of minutes, text, and data for use on the Island, in addition to shared UK and EU roaming allowances of up to 500 minutes, 500 texts and 50GB of data. Tariffs start from just £25 per month (excluding VAT), and are available to any registered business that meets Manx Telecom’s standard Pay Monthly terms and conditions.

As with all of Manx Telecom’s mobile customers, SmartCorp users also benefit from being on the Island’s best overall network as recently confirmed in a rigorous independent survey carried out by Equiendo, one of the telecoms industry’s leading research specialists which is trusted by international operators including Vodafone, 3, Eir, Telefónica and Digicel. Furthermore, Manx Telecom’s business customers are supported by their Island-based Customer Experience and Account Management teams – the largest on the Isle of Man.

Al Lugton, Mobile Product Development Manager at Manx Telecom, says the company has listened to business customers and designed the SmartCorp tariffs to meet the needs of all Isle of Man businesses, from SMEs to major corporations. “We`ve listened to all our valued customers large and small and the feedback we received was to provide more affordable, simpler and transparent roaming – so we did just that and created SmartCorp. Choosing SmartCorp gives our customers the confidence of knowing that they have their mobile needs covered both on and off-Island whilst travelling in UK and EU destinations, and takes the worry out of roaming. SmartCorp builds on the success of our Smartroam consumer mobile tariffs launched last year with more than 9,000 customers now benefiting from a roaming inclusive tariff in just six months. Both Smartroam and SmartCorp are the result of an extensive project involving significant investment in IT systems, and negotiating even better international roaming agreements. We have been working hard behind the scenes for some time to renegotiate our costs with global network partners, and this has enabled us to pass on the cost savings directly to our customers. We now have 380 roaming agreements with all major networks, including those in the most popular destinations visited by Isle of Man business travellers.”
