KDG launches mobile service

26 May 2009

German cable operator Kabel Deutschland (KDG) has introduced a mobile service using the network of cellco O2 Germany, a subsidiary of Spanish telecoms company Telefonica. The new service, dubbed Mobile Phone, has enabled the operator to offer quadruple-play packages. It is currently only available for subscribers to KDG’s Kabel Internet & Phone package. Customers have free calls to KDG telephony subscribers and other Mobile Phone subscribers, while calls to other German fixed and mobile networks are priced at EUR0.15 (USD0.21) per minute. Every cable subscriber can order up to five SIM cards, which can be activated for EUR9.99 each.

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, KDG revealed in March 2009 plans to add mobile telephony to its portfolio of services as part of a quadruple-play package along with television, broadband internet and fixed line telephony. O2 Germany was rumoured to be the likely partner for the new offering, although the cableco said it was open to other options.
