“Being at the right place at the right time“ is true for Mr. Pavel Trnka (30) of Prague 2, the 1,000,000th customer activated on the Oskar network. The lucky customer activated his SIM card with the I Call All The Time rate plan on April 16th.

The 1,000,000th customer will receive an attractive package of benefits from Oskar:

  • 1,000,000 CZK in national calling
  • A leading-edge GPRS phone of his choice
  • A Compaq pocket computer
  • A golden phone number
  • VIP customer care via OskarLinka
  • 5 Testcartas as a gift for family and friends
  • Free activation of roaming
  • Free activation of the Oskamarádi service

“I would like to thank to all of our customers for choosing Oskar and helping us to reach this important milestone.,“ says Sylvie Scott, Vice President Marketing, Retail and Business Sales.

Oskar acquired its 1,000,000th customer only two years, one month and ten days after its commercial launch, which is an extraordinary achievement on the European scale. Oskar’s two competitors had acquired only 450,000 and 300,000 customers, respectively, by the end of their 2nd year of GSM network build-out.

According to a recent study by DiamondCluster, Oskar’s market share places the company into the Top 4 of Europe’s third mobile operators, leaving behind renowned companies, such as One2One (Great Britain), E-Plus (Germany), Finnet (Finland), Bouygues (France), Vodafone Hungary (Hungary) and Telia DK (Denmark). DiamondCluster claims that the secret behind Oskar’s success is the concept of „quality services at affordable prices“, a strong brand, easy and straightforward tariff structure, easy-to-use services and extraordinarily fast network build-out.

Cesky Mobil became the first dual-band (GSM 900/1800) network operator in the Czech Republic after being granted its license in October 1999. It launched commercial operation of its leading edge GSM network on March 1, 2000 under the brand name Oskar. By April 2002 Oskar acquired over 1,000,000 subscribers becoming one of the leading, third license operators in Central Europe! Through the ClearWave holding, Český Mobil a.s. is a member of the telecommunications group of Canadian-based Telesystem International Wireless (TIW). The Company's shares are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TIW") and NASDAQ ("TIWI").
