T-Mobile and Orange customers to get everything everywhere... hopefully
It’s been a while since T-Mobile and Orange merged, leading to the birth of new parent company Everything Everywhere (if indeed it’s possible to give birth to a parent) but until now, the point of it all has been slightly vague.
Finally though, Everything Everywhere (bit of an arrogant name but never mind) have spoken. And get this – if you are a customer of either T-Mobile or Orange, from October 5th, you’ll be able to access the combined network of BOTH providers. Oh yes, we’re in the arena of big dreams here people.
Customers will need to sign up for the service, but it’ll mean that if they’re with Orange and the signal drops, their phone will search for a T-Mobile signal, reconnect if there is one and they’ll be able to carry on yammering away about bugger all for a bit longer.
Better still, from next year, the transition will be carried out mid-call with no need to reconnect and redial. Amazing stuff – although we’re not sure how often it’ll actually happen for callers. Cue floods of comments from irate customers of both companies who regularly lose reception.
