Bringing Simplifydigital into the Dixons Carphone family will further solidify our position as the best place for customers to receive independent advice across all their technology, connectivity, media content and service needs and positions us well to take advantage of emerging trends in the market, such as quadplay. It is also an important part of our wider plan of building a significant Services business, where Dixons Carphone becomes the trusted partner in our customers' homes for responsive, accessible, expert and affordable technology support.

I look forward to working with Charlie and the excellent entrepreneurial team that has developed the business this far."

"We have grown rapidly to become the UK's largest TV, broadband and home phone switching service.  In doing so we followed a path originally blazed by Carphone Warehouse - so I can't think of a business better suited to help take Simplifydigital to the next level than Dixons Carphone. We are excited to enter this next phase of growth together."
