Orange and T-Mobile combine their Network into Everything Everywhere

The merger of the two major operators will allow 30 million of UK mobile customers to make calls and send text messages on either network for no extra cost.

This move is the first benefit for the customers to come from the partnership between Orange and T-Mobile in the UK unveiled last May. This new system will be available starting on October 5th for customers who apply for this free ‘roaming’ service.

Tom Alexander, CEO of Everything Everywhere, the company resulting from the merger, said:

This is the beginning of an ambitious plan to give our customers instant access to whatever they want, wherever they are – instant access to everything everywhere.

The ambition goes further than simply offering an alternate 2G network to customers: Next year customers will automatically switch to whichever of the two networks has the strongest signal while they are mid-call (hand-off), and benefit from enhanced data and internet coverage through 3G
