Gamma expands Three UK-backed business mobile service to new customers

Gamma CEO Bob Falconer

Gamma, a UK-based communications service provider for businesses, announced that a recently launched mobile service is now open for new customers.

In a statement emailed to FierceWireless:Europe, the company said it is now ready to expand its mobile access, which it offers alongside its existing cloud PBX, inbound call control services, and SIP trunking services.

A Gamma spokesperson told FW:E that while the mobile service originally opened for migrations in June, the latest announcement covers availability of the service for “new customers who wish to go onto our new mobile network.”

Gamma first announced plans to offer mobile services in 2014, when it revealed it had acquired its own core mobile network infrastructure. The company said it has since developed the network, and in February announced a partnership with Three UK covering the provision of primary radio access in the country.

The company said owning its own core network is a key benefit, enabling it to fully control the mobile service. Gamma’s wireless network utilises Ericsson software, enabling the operator to offer 4G, voice over Wi-Fi, and VoLTE services. Gamma said the network will also provide its channel partners with greater control over customer ownership, branding and pricing.

Gamma CEO Bob Falconer said the mobile service “addresses the needs and challenges of today’s business market, while providing the control and flexibility our partners need to deliver a differentiated service to their customers.”

The mobile infrastructure will become “a core component and the foundation for Gamma’s converged offering moving forward, enabling us to take our portfolio of voice, data, and mobile solutions to the next level,” Falconer added.

In an announcement on Gamma’s website regarding the expansion of its mobile service, Falconer said the company chose Three UK because the mobile operator offers “very good coverage for both voice and data” in the country.

Lynda Burton, director of wholesale at Three UK, explained that the wholesale market “represents a significant growth opportunity for Three,” and said the company has worked with Gamma “to create a product that draws on the great experience that Three’s customers already enjoy and allows them to shake up the enterprise mobile market.”
