Cessation of Ebluey Service - March 2017

The Ministry of Defence has announced that the e-bluey service will be ending on 31 March 2017.
The British Forces Post Office (BFPO) would like to reassure all concerned that the BFPO remains fully committed to ensuring that those deployed on operations are able to keep in touch with their families and friends.
It is regrettable that SuperLetter, the company that provide the e-bluey service, announced the cessation of the e-bluey before the BFPO could launch its own communications to inform our valued customers.
Please be assured that we understand and take their concerns seriously, and that the importance of the services provided by the BFPO is recognised and embedded within the Armed Forces Covenant, as well as the Terms and Conditions of Service of military personnel.
Since the draw down from Afghanistan in 2014, and the continued growth of Wi-Fi and mobile data-based technologies, the e-bluey has become much less popular as a way for Service personnel to stay in touch.
Usage has fallen by 97%, with numbers declining significantly from 100,000 in 2007 to under 3,000 per month in December 2016. As a result of this rapid decline in usage, and changes in the way people are staying in touch with each other, the decision has been made to terminate the e-bluey service.
