Just Mobile forced to close in funding crisis

IRISH mobile operator Just Mobile is winding down its service over the coming days.

The company said that it was unable to secure funding and has advised the communications regulator of its intention to close down.

ComReg has advised consumers to choose an alternative provider to avoid interruption.

On its website this morning, Just Mobile said that its main partner Vodafone and other suppliers, who had been very supportive, could not continue to support them any longer.

Just Mobile, a pre-paid mobile network, was launched last year. At the time, it said it was planning to create up to 70 jobs over two years.
