bmobile-vodafone Brand Re-launch

Port Moresby, October 6, 2017. “The future is exciting. Ready?” This is the new slogan that bmobile-vodafone along with other Vodafone operators worldwide will now use as part of the global brand re-launch campaign.

The global brand re-launch suggests a move from empowering users to inviting them to embrace and be part of an exciting world where mobile communication technology and the innovations that stem from it are interwoven with how you live, work and play.

Acting Group CEO, Athula Biyanwila, “Our partnership with Vodafone aligns us with global standards and gives us an insight to other Vodafone operators. This enables us to harness their knowledge and experience so that we can apply that to our unique market. With the merged entity of Kumul Telikom and the subsequent sharing of resources, we are excited about the future prospects and we invite PNG to join us on this journey.”

Regional Marketing Manager, Megan Andrew, “When Bemobile PNG LTD embarked on this partnership with Vodafone in July of 2014 to become bmobile-vodafone, we knew that we were going to be part of a global community. When we decided to change our slogan from ‘Power to you’ to ‘Your friendlier network’ we wanted to create a sense of partnership with the people we served. We wanted to be an alternative mobile operator that showed everyone what great customer service meant and to not be satisfied with the former status quo of being mediocre. We wanted to show everyone that we were the most affordable operator, that we could stretch your Kina further than any other operator could and we still do.
