Manx Telecom offers Mobile Downloads service on superfast 3.5G network

manx_telecom_logo.gifWe often credit (and drool at) Japan with having the most advanced technology, and bemoaning the lack of such gadgetry in the UK, but you don’t have to look so far away to find cutting edge technology and services.

Manx Telecom, which serves the Isle of Man, has just launched a converged content delivery service called Mobile Downloads, which will enable its 75,000-strong subscriber base to purchase, download, and consume music from both mobile devices and PCs, thanks to the new iO Mobile Experience Platform.

Manx claims to be the first operator in the world to deliver such a service from iO global, having also credited as the first in the world to launch a 3.5G mobile service.
