Virgin has no plans to open up down under

9 Feb 2009

The UK-based Virgin Mobile group has denied reports that it is looking to team up with New Zealand wireless licensee NZ Communications to help launch that country’s third cellular network. Virgin Mobile marketing manager Nikki Lambert told New Zealand newspaper The Dominion Post; ‘I can confirm that Virgin does not have any current plans regarding New Zealand and is not in any discussions with any operators out there.’ As a reseller Virgin Mobile has launched pre-paid mobile services in markets such as the UK, the US, India, Australia, Canada and South Africa.
