Darren Seward Head of Mobility, Westcoast, said: “They [Lease Telecom] have an unsurpassed track record in creating robust leasing solutions for their own telecom partners. Teaming up with them means we can now offer our resellers some outstanding and truly progressive finance options across handsets, mobile device management, lifecycle services and much, much more.”

“He added: “This agreement demonstrates Westcoast’s commitment to set the pace across mobility. More and more of our partners and their customers are looking for affordability and flexibility in how they finance for mobile products and services.
