I appreciate this sounds a bit daft talking about a competitor’s launch, but according to this link Monzo are starting a phased rollout. Given the head start they have over Starling with their app, in my personal opinion their ‘launch’ is a bit disappointing.
The restrictions that exist have surprised me massively: basically many of the nice bells and whistles on their prepaid platform have been lost by making this move. I do appreciate they are stuck between where they are now, and where they want to be by the end of 2017.
Will anybody be jumping ship? I know I won’t!
