The People's Operator plc (TPO) is a cause-based commercial mobile virtual network operator with a strategy of acquiring customers through viral networking and online communities.
The Company was founded in 2012 and currently offers customers pay monthly ("PAYM") or pay-as-you-go ("PAYG") mobile contracts. These contracts are competitively priced and allow users to direct 10 percent of their monthly bill to a cause of their choosing at no cost to themselves. In addition, The TPO Foundation, a UK registered charity, will receive 25 percent of TPO's UK trading profits. A similar structure is proposed to be adopted in other countries as TPO expands globally, starting with a launch in the United States in 2015.
