Carphone Warehouse buys One.Tel
This week has seen another ISP being bought out. One.Tel has been acquired by Carphone Warehouse for £132 million from Centrica to be able to compete better with BT. One.Tel offers both alternative voice services as well as broadband, adding to their portfolio which includes Tele2's carrier pre-select business. In addition, they have also agreed to pay British Gas a further £22.2 million over three years if British Gas customer recruitment targets are met.
One.Tel has 60,000 broadband users which will presumably be transferred to under the TalkTalk umbrella with other operations. This is a series of acquisitions which have formed the One.Tel group that includes Rednet earlier this year.
