Charges for calls between mobile and fixed line phones could fall for businesses that purchase both types of services from the same operator.
UK telecomms operator ACC Telecom announced plans today to offer cellular phone connections to small and medium-sized businesses, in addition to its fixed line and Internet access services. Under the service, dubbed Mobile ACCess, customers will get a single bill for all services.
In addition, ACC plans to cut the cost of phone calls between users of its mobile phone service, and its fixed line subscribers. Such discounts are likely to be implemented in the second quarter of 1999, said Andrew Morris, product manager for cellular services at the company.
ACC Telecom will resell Cellnet's mobile phone service, in the same way that it currently resells Netcom's Internet access service.
"Lots of companies will benefit from using a mobile phone service. However, what may be preventing them doing so is the associated cost," said Morris.
ACC said it will be offering competitive pricing on all its communications services for users who opt for the Mobile ACCess system. Companies will also save money spent processing separate invoices, it said.
