The "big switch-on" from Everything Everywhere is continuing for UK customers. Everything Everywhere is the parent company of both Orange and T-Mobile, and is also the largest communications company in the UK. The company had begun the "big switch-on" last year by allowing Orange and T-Mobile customers to use each other's 2G networks, and now has announced that sharing will extend to 3G networks as well.
The roll-out will begin next week and continue for a few months. Eventually, all 27 million Orange and T-Mobile customers in the UK will be able to use each other's 3G networks to make roaming easier, better covered, and less expensive.
