Because adding a question mark means when you’re proved wrong you can say it was just an inquiry, not solid fact.
Adrian Weckler covered the pending launch of the new eircom mobile phone network this autumn.
A little digging and we see that they are kitting out new stores all around the country. The planning permission on a store on Patrick’s Street/Opera Lane in Cork states it’s for eircom. A quick search on Recruit Ireland finds the job listings. The perks pretty much tell you it’s eircom. What’s interesting is that the jobs start at the end of the month and you’ll get three weeks training. That would mean that the new staff are ready to go at the end of September.
The TIF conference (big telco industry back slapathon) is early October too. It would be good to have that launched at or before it and soak up the buzz.
The name didn’t fit right with me, so I dug more. Corporates already work with Eircom Mobile. EircomMobile.ie hasn’t been registered though. Lots of other ones are however.
Lots of playing on the CRO website for business names and we see that eMobile is a business name for eircom. eMobile.ie is owned by eircom but has been for a long while it seems. And then there’s the emobileie account on Twitter. But eircomMobile exists too.
So I think we’re on track for an October launch and a possible name is eMobile. Or maybe e-Mobile. But it could also be Eircom Mobile. I’d prefer eMobile.
