Capita to acquire Vodafone paging service
A spokesperson for Capita said: “This proposed acquisition will extend the future of wide-area paging services in the UK in an increasingly competitive mobile messaging market. It will enable Capita’s PageOne business to offer its extended range of integrated paging and messaging services to more customers.
“PageOne has been operating national paging services on its own independent paging network for 30 years. It provides a range of integrated messaging services for corporate and government organisations across the UK.”
According to the company, PageOne will work closely with Vodafone to ensure a smooth transition for customers, including allowing them to retain existing numbers. The acquisition is subject to Competition and Markets Authority approval.
