This merging has been the latest news which has been making the users of Orange and T-Mobile happy. Both networks will have 30 million users if combined. Initially, the merging wold be available for text messages and voice calls as of this time. The merging of these two big network would then make them the biggest provider in UK surpassing Telefonica’s O2, that comprises at about 37% of the mobile market.
As what has been posted in BBC, Orange and T-Mobile’s deal which will be due to be signed by November – would “bring substantial benefits to UK customers”, and promised expanded network coverage, better network quality and improved customer services. In this merging, T-Mobile would be the one to gain the most advantage as it has been labeled as an underperforming network outside of England.
The clients of both networks can have their free roaming service by just registering and eventually their phone can now automatically hop between the networks when it loses signal. By next year, Everything Everywhere – the company that runs Orange and T-Mobile in the UK – said that phones would automatically switch to whichever of the two networks has the strongest signal mid-call.
As of now, only 2G signal are being utilized but eventually 3G services would be catered thus widening the scope that its users are having.
