Velotel mobile network for cyclists officially launched

Cyclists can get a great mobile service from a range of networks in the UK, however, Velotel shapes their mobile products and value add services to specifically benefit the needs of the cycling community.

Key to the Velotel proposition are well structured voice and data plans and the inclusion of roamlike-at-home across the EU in all plans, all of which have been enabled by the leading European MVNE, Transatel (subsidiary of NTT ltd).  NTT is the official technology partner of the Tour de France.

Velotel is a proud partner of the EE network, which has superb coverage and access speeds across the UK. Velotel customers get identical access to the EE 5G network at no additional charge or throttling.

The operator offers its plans on a pay monthly basis – meaning you pay for your bundled subscription upfront on a monthly reoccurring basis. After month one your billing cycle will be adjusted to the day your SIM was activated. Any additional out of bundle charges you may have incurred will be billed in arrears in your next monthly bill. This breakdown will reflect on your Velotel invoice, and be visible on the ‘my account’ section of the website.

  • High charge services such as international calling and premium rates numbers are deactivated as standard on a customer profile, unless you specifically ask us to unlock, which is an easy process to do and undo.
  • The My Account section of the Velotel website will give you access to recent invoices and a breakdown of your mobile network usage, should you need to understand more about your bill.

“Velotel needed to offer its customers access to a top-rated network, and superb voice and data
packages. We found Transatel to be the ideal partner to provide these services. An added benefit was the link between group company NTT and the cycling industry. We look forward to partnering with Transatel to continue to develop products and services that are well aligned to our customers’ unique requirements.” says Jody Forrester, Velotel CEO.

Transatel is proud to be the enablement partner of Velotel, providing network and access solutions, allowing Velotel’s customers to connect on the UK’s largest 5G network. We congratulate Velotel on their launch and look forward to working together over the coming years.” adds Jacques Bonifay, CEO of Transatel and President of MVNO Europe association.
