Mobile broadband news

Tesco Mobile is currently looking at plans to launch mobile broadband bundles as part of an ongoing expansion plan.

The mobile provider already intends to open a number of mobile shops in Tesco Extra stores from next year and is pursing bundles to rival those offered by Talk Talk.

In an interview with the Independent, chief executive Lance Batchelor explained that in order to become "the leading telecoms player in the UK", Tesco Mobile must consider competitive bundles and packages.

"We have looked at it and are considering it," he said, suggesting that he hopes to position the company alongside the major high street providers.

"A one line summary of my business plan is to be the leading telecoms player in the UK by any core metric, such as profitability, and that includes being bigger than Carphone Warehouse and Virgin Mobile."

Tesco's telecoms division already offers a number of home broadband packages, as well as dongles and devices that support monthly mobile broadband tariffs.
