Boost Mobile will replace Pulsate in the New Zealand youth mobile market with existing customers able to top up their prepaid accounts with the new Boost Mobile recharge cards.

“Boost is committed to providing an affordable solution to getting mobile for the young, the young at heart and the new entrants to the mobile market,” Boost Tel Chief Executive Peter Adderton said today.

Telecom Mobile General Manager Mohan Jesudason said the alliance was a powerful combination of Telecom’s unrivalled suite of mobile phone products and services, and Boost’s links into the youth segment.
