Everything Everywhere switches network on

As of today, customers of Orange and T-Mobile can access each other's networks.

Mobile network

Today saw the merger of Orange and T-Mobile take the next step as its customers can now access both networks.

The newly formed company, called Everything Everywhere, now provides mobile network access to 27 million people in the UK and dominates with market share.

Whilst customers will need to register online to access the previous rival network, the extra coverage will be available for free and no changes to user's tariffs will be needed.

Tom Alexander, chief executive (CEO) of Everything Everywhere, said: "Today's switch-on is the culmination of a unique and hugely complex technical project. But the result is simple our customers now get two networks for the price of one."

"That means 27 million consumers can now keep close to the people, places and things that matter to them in more places than ever before. This is the first step in our vision of giving our customers instant access to whatever they want, wherever they are instant access to everything, everywhere."

At the moment, it is only the network for voice and text being shared, but the plan is to extend this to 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi connections in the future. The company has also claimed next year will see customers able to choose between T-Mobile and Orange's coverage for whichever offers them the strongest signal.
