Latest Primus Saver News  

New Call Telecom Ltd acquires retail assets of Primus Telecommunications UK Ltd.
London, UK, 12 October, 2010

New Call Telecom Ltd. is delighted to announce its acquisition of Primus Telecommunications UK Ltd.’s retail assets on 1st October 2010.

New Call Telecom, owned and managed by an experienced team of Primus UK retail specialists, is backed by independent investor, Bob Morton who comes with a prolific record in successful investments and commitment to UK business.

The acquisition sees the creation of a diverse and agile company better equipped to serve its customer base with a more focused team.

In spite of industry-wide increases in telecoms rates, Primus will continue to offer the competitive rates that seen it named by News of the World as having the "best current deals" and the "cheapest line rental" in the UK market and recommended by the Guardian Money as a "best-buy" service (see links to articles below).

Existing Primus customers will not notice any immediate change. New Call will continue to trade under the Primus and Planet Talk brands, while Primus Professional Services – a new entity made up of the former Primus Telecommunications UK Ltd.’s back office team – is under contract to provide support.

New Call has set out a comprehensive programme of improvements to existing services and the addition of new services to back up an aggressive customer acquisition plan.

Principal investor, Bob Morton said: “It’s an exciting time for New Call and Primus and I look forward to helping improve and grow the services on offer”.

Nigel Eastwood, CEO, of New Call Telecom Ltd said: “We all look forward to continuing the good work done by Primus and pushing the brands and services to the next level for our existing and future customers”.

Notes for Editors:

The Primus retail brands include: the award-winning Primus Saver (home phone, line rental, new line installations and broadband), Planet Talk (a range of discount international calling services), Primus Business (a complete portfolio of telecommunications solutions for business)

The former parent company, Primus Telecommunications Ltd. is a leading independent carrier and service provider in the global telecommunications marketplace. With head offices based in McLean, VA, the company also has successful operations in Canada and Australia. Its UK business has been running for 14 years.

Primus’ place in the market has been established by keeping rates as low in spite of industry-wide increases.
Bob Morton is a successful British entrepreneur and investor who has seen the successful turnover of numerous companies
