“We’re delighted to announce our new partnership with Citymain and A1 Comms,” commented Gary Vincent, sales director at AXA Partners UK & Ireland.

Vincent said landing the “exciting” deal is significant and is a testament to AXA Partners’ capabilities, expertise, and customer focus.
Meanwhile Bobbie Bhogal, managing director of digital at A1 Comms, had this to say: “As a trusted communications provider, we strive to provide our customers with not only the best UK coverage, but also great customer service – and that includes giving them peace of mind through the protection of their smartphones and devices.
