Come friendly bombs

These are the first three words of a famous poem about Slough, which is also home to mobile network O2 (and also to the fictional company Wernham Hogg featured in The Office, although one building used in the opening sequence is actually near Waterloo Station in London and is home to the Central Office of Information). Anyway, it seemed an apt introduction to the feature in the "Jobs & Money" section of The Guardian on Saturday, which sought to bring the drama and economic benefits of the MVNO price war to the masses. I met up for coffee with a UK wireless entrepreneur last week, who told me he is personally aware of at least six MVNOs preparing to go live in the coming months, in addition to whatever more exotic services may emerge in the converged space.
