Everything Everywhere, Britain's newest and biggest phone company, snapped up its new domain name for “a nominal sum”, according to its previous owner.

T-Mobile and Orange said today they have merged their UK businesses to create a new telecoms giant that will operate under the brand Everything Everywhere.

The company will have over 30 million customers, with 713 shops and 16,500 employees.

But until today its new web address, everythingeverywhere.com, was owned by British IT consultant Ted Kelly.

Kelly told us in in an email: “I'm a little shocked to see the news today... coincidentally, the day that this modest sale was completed!

“It seems that it was bought by 'an agent' who kept very quiet about the intentions for the domain. It was therefore acquired for a very nominal sum.”

Kelly declined to disclose the price the domain sold for. The deal was sealed with a private offer/counter-offer negotiation through the auction house Sedo.

Its nominal new registrant is Melbourne IT Digital Brand Services, part of an Australian domain registrar that specialises in securing domains for large corporate customers. ®
