Can't say I like it. Better in Telecom blue.

Wonder if they're going to franchise the brand out, with 1 Mobile being a Telecom focused equivalent of Vodafone reseller First Mobile?

If this is some sort of merger with Orange (FR and UK etc..) then maybe they might introduce some of their practices into our mobile market?

Loljk thats not happening.

It does look like a bit of a rip off, and a cheaply done logo. I thought of the BBC Radio 1 logo when I first saw that 1Mobile logo.

looks like Telecom has registered 1mobile.net.nz and 1mobile.org.nz

edit: why don't they just bring Boost Mobile back?

Omg yesss I remember boost mobile. They so should.

If they want it to be a network for cost conscious people, they should do a gsm network if possible so cheap old phones can work on it. But I don't think thats going to happen. haha

I think Boost is an American brand, and they probably had to pay royalties or something to use the name.
