Orange and T-Mobile play nice and share 3G signals
Everything Everywhere is going to let customers of its T-Mobile and Orange brands use both networks' 3G signals.
Isn't that nice?
This comes on the back of the companies allowing customers to use both networks for 2G voice and SMS purposes.
"Not only will customers be able to talk in places they weren't able to before, they'll also now be able to access the internet, social networks or download emails at improved speeds, in more places," Everything Everywhere chief Olaf Swantee said in a statement.
Lovely name that.
There's also going to be "additional 2G improvements" so that everything else runs better. Customers may recall that, when the 2G network-sharing switch-on happened, they had to register to the other network's signal. This time around, this isn't going to be the case.
What will happen now is that you'll receive a text message telling you that you can now use both signals, and all you have to do to make this happen is switch your phone on-and-off.
