T-Mobile offers the internet for £1 a day

Pre-Pay customers get mobile surfing

Boost IT visibility and business value

T-Mobile Pre-Pay customers can now surf the internet from their mobiles for a maximum charge of £1 a day.

The Web 'n' Walk service, launched yesterday, costs less than penny a kilobyte, with a cap at £1 per day and all usage beyond that free.

The service, which had previously been limited to customers paying monthly, boasts no cap on usage and no limitations on the websites customers can visit, though those wanting to access sites of an "adult" nature will need to prove they are over the age of 18.

The service is currently only be available on the Motorola v3 RAZR and Nokia 6131, though support for more handsets is promised before Christmas.

Web 'n' Walk is a great service for accessing websites from your mobile phone (if you have the right handset), but woe betide anyone who tries to use the tariff with their laptop, use Voice over IP, or even watch a streaming video from the internet.

T-Mobile makes it very clear in its terms and conditions that such behaviour will not be tolerated and, if detected, will result in a stern warning followed by a reduction in service. ®
