Trinity Mirror, one of the largest multimedia publishers in the UK, need their journalists to be able to write, film, work on the go, close to the action. Their journalistic mobility is underpinned by Vodafone.
"We knew we needed to collaborate with a serious mobile player. When Vodafone acquired Cable & Wireless we realised we’d got the best of both worlds: the best wire in the ground and the biggest mobile operator." Peter Quinn,
Service Delivery Manager for Telecom & Networks,Trinity Mirror
Forty years ago, a Fleet Street journalist created a news story with a series of phone calls and a typewriter. Today, there is no Fleet Street and journalists need not be found at their desks. More likely, they’ll be out of the office, writing, filming and tweeting from closer to the action. For Trinity Mirror, one of the largest multimedia publishers in the UK, this journalistic mobility is key.
