Telecom says the boss of discount mobile division Skinny, Paul O'Shannessey, has left the company "to pursue other opportunities".

Skinny launched in January, offering a low-cost pre-paid service over Telecom's XT network.

Telecom has been attempting to market Skinny to youth, to win back market share from 2degrees and try and challenge Vodafone's supremacy in Auckland.

Telecom has so far refused to disclose Skinny's customer numbers.
