Orange and T-Mobile join hands with 3G coverage

Everything Everywhere getting there

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Orange and T-Mobile have extended their joint reach by making it possible for their respective customer bases to use 3G signals from both networks.

When the companies joined forces under the Everything Everywhere banner in 2010, they underwent a "big switch-on" and opened up the 2G channels - voice, basically - to patrons right across the board.

From next week, though, the group is extending its effort to 3G for faster data rates.

Users could benefit from faster internet and data speeds in a greater range of areas, EE claimed.

The scheme is set to roll out regionally over the next few months along with further 2G improvements that apparently "allow customers to keep talking in more places".

Virgin Media, which has had a long-standing signal sharing arrangement with T-Mobile, has already announced it will make use of Orange's 3G connections sometime in 2012. ®
