“Truth”: Kogan wins ispONE fight
blog If you were watching Ruslan Kogan’s Twitter feed closely this afternoon, you would have seen the Kogan chief claim victory in his company’s contentious court battle against mobile wholesaler ispONE. iTNews has a more complete story which gives the full picture, and ispONE hasn’t made its own statement yet, but for the record, here’s Kogan’s victory statement:
“We entered the telecommunications industry to shake things up, and make mobile access more affordable for all Australians. We knew this would ruffle a few feathers in the industry, but we never expected it to end up in Court.
Today’s victory means that Kogan Mobile customers can rest assured that their services will not be unlawfully interfered with by the wholesaler. Australians can trust Kogan Mobile to continue to provide the best deals in the market. We’re glad the right result was reached, and that the truth about the last few months is now abundantly clear. Kogan will always fight for our customers to ensure that they get the best deals in the market.
Today is a win for Australians fed up with paying too much for their mobile phone access. The migration to Kogan Mobile has been one of the largest in Australian telecommunications history, and with today’s result we can only see this migration gathering further momentum.”
Regular readers will know we haven’t always been as kind to Kogan as the good Ruslan perhaps may have liked, but we have to give the entrepreneur credit in this case for sticking to his guns and putting his lawyers where his mouth is. Nice one. Hopefully Kogan Mobile can take this one in its stride and continue building strength to drive innovation in the mobile market. Right now, it certainly needs it.
