Three’s CEO David Dyson has defended its decision to offer 4G for free, saying customers will be the judge as to whether it is “devaluing” the service, not EE CEO Olaf Swantee
Three CEO David Dyson has rejected accusations made by EE CEO Olaf Swantee that it is “devaluing” 4G, saying it is doing what is right for UK customers.
Responding to an article featured exclusively in Mobile News last week (see here) Dyson said Swantee’s comments raised the question of whether the EE CEO is in touch with the UK public.
Swantee had said Three’s decision not to place a premium on 4G services will lead to uncertainty amongst customers as to what it can offer.
Dyson said: “I was really flattered when I head that Olaf was talking about us, as it probably means we are doing something right.
“But I would point you to the comments coming from mobile users in the UK. The answer to the question of whether we are devaluing 4G will come from customers.
“And looking at those comments, you have to question whether Olaf is in touch with the UK public.”
The comments from Mobile News readers called EE “deluded” and accused the company of “ripping people off” (see comments section here).
