Over 2,000 new customers have connected to the Phone Co-op following an acquisition.

The co-operative, which is marketed as The Co-operative Phone and Broadband, has acquired 2,400 residential and business customers from Namesco, which is refocusing its business away from offering broadband services.

Vivian Woodell, the co-op’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to welcome these new customers to the Phone Co-op. We are confident that our customer-focused approach, which stems from the fact that the Phone Co-op belongs to its customers, will appeal to the people who are moving to us.

“All our customers have the opportunity to become members of the Phone Co-op, to co-own the business and share in the profits, and we hope that as many as possible of these new customers will choose to do so.”

Stephen Ewart, commercial director of Namesco, added: “This move to the Phone Co-op will be beneficial as customers will now be with a specialist provider offering improved products and a wider range of phone and broadband services. We spent a lot of time with the Phone Co-op’s management and were impressed with their values and approach. We couldn’t have found a better home for our customers and trust this initial agreement will open up more opportunities to work together in the future.”
