Orange and T-Mobile to offer customers access to both networks

Customers invited to sign-up to get access to both networks

By CBR Staff Writer

The UK based communications company Everything Everywhere, has announced the first consumer benefit of the merger between Orange and T-Mobile, opening up its two mobile networks to customers of both brands.

Orange said that starting from 5 October 2010, the combined customer base of the company and T-Mobile in the UK, will be offered the opportunity to access both networks, enabling them to make calls and send texts in more places in the UK for no extra cost.

Everything Everywhere CEO Tom Alexander said that this is the beginning of an ambitious plan to give their customers instant access to whatever they want, wherever they are – instant access to everything everywhere.

"We have a vision of a ‘multinet’ world where the consumer will be able to access what they want, when they want, at the touch of a button," Alexander said.

"It will all be possible due to a complex system of interweaving multiple networks, bringing mobile, wifi and fixed technologies together to act as a super network."

Customers who sign up for access to both networks will benefit free of charge, with no changes to their existing tariffs or call or text charges.

Once registered, should a customer lose signal on their existing network, they will then automatically pick up the signal from the other network where it’s available, Orange said.
