2011 - Present

,

Rhizome Media started working with consumer-champion brand, uSwitch, back in 2011. Our job was to put its in-house experts into the news agenda on all things telecoms.

Public Relations

Over the past four years we've worked closely with uSwitch's telecoms team to both set the news agenda and comment reactively on breaking news.

The Rhizome team prides itself on its ability to draft and issue reactive comments within 30 minutes of news breaking and – with the expertise of uSwitch's spokespeople to pick apart data and detail – distilling telecoms industry news into digestable, comprehensive, and compelling copy that always answer the question: "what does this mean for consumers?".

In recent months (to name just a few) we've commented on and secured national press coverage on major smartphone launches, planned changes to mobile roaming charges in the EU, Ofcom's proposals to change the switching process, and new broadband deal launches.

Press releases

But generating press coverage doesn't end with reactive comments. We also come up with ideas for stories using consumer survey data and uSwitch data. Here's a few that really hit the mark:

  • Brits spend over £48million unlocking mobile phones every year
  • Brits still hit with annual mobile roaming bills of £573million after holidaying in the EU
  • Parents to send kids back to school with £3.2billion of gadgets, despite half worrying tech damages social skills
  • 3.5million British kids under eight now have tablets
  • 3D screens?! Smartphone makers should focus on the basics to win us over, say 12.4million British tech fans
