T-Mobile targets growth in UK mobile phone market

T-Mobile’s head has set a target of becoming the UK’s third largest mobile phone carrier within the next couple of years.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Richard Moat, managing director of the phone network, said that he is aiming to advance the company from its status as the fourth largest operator within “two to three years”.

He told the newspaper: "I firmly believe we have been in fourth place for too long and we have to develop ambition to get away from there.”

News of developments comes amid speculation that T-Mobile is poised to begin selling iPhones, in a move that would bring an end to rival network O2’s exclusivity deal for Apple’s high-end handsets.

If reports are to believed, the arrangement would see the earlier iPhone 3G editions being sold by T-Mobile, with O2 retaining the sole rights for the latest iPhone 3G S editions.

T-Mobile customer service operatives are already giving out iPhones to high-spending customers who threaten to leave in the network.
