T-Mobile and Orange Joint Venture Gives Customers Access to 3G Signals from Both Networks

T-Mobile and Orange have taken another step in their joint effort to allow their respective customers use of 3G signals from both networks.

About a year ago, T-mobile and Orange started allowing their customers to take advantage of both networks for 2G voice and SMS services.

Everything Everywhere, the parent company, announced earlier that the “big 3G switch-on” is going to start next week and will eventually benefit both end users with wider mobile broadband coverage.

"Not only will customers be able to talk in places they weren't able to before, they will also now be able to access the Internet, social networks or download emails at improved speeds in more places," said Everything Everywhere chief Olaf Swantee in a statement, as reported by ZDNet.

The company is also looking forward to introducing “additional 2G improvements” to increase the voice and text message services of both Orange and T-Mobile.

The two companies announced this joint venture last year, backed by Everything Everywhere, a collaboration between Deutsche Telekom and France Telecom.
