The merger between Orange and T-Mobile has proved a successful venture so far, according to the Chief Executive of Everything Everywhere.

Tom Alexander, who heads up the mobile broadband providers' parent company, said the new company has made "rapid progress" in the six months since incorporation, with customer numbers up and attrition rates down.

He claimed that with a strong leadership team in place and a clear strategy based on transforming the market through network leadership, Everything Everywhere is well placed for growth.

"We have identified in excess of £3.5 billion of synergies, allowing us to further invest in our networks and build our customer offer for both today and tomorrow," he commented.

"Our aspiration is to give people instant access to everything everywhere and with the launch of national roaming next week - enabling our customers to access what matters to them over two national networks - we're well on our way."

Second quarter figures for the merged company show that contract customer churn fell to 1.4 per cent between April and June 2010, down from 1.7 per cent a year earlier.

The combined customer base of T-Mobile and Orange rose from 27.025,000 in Q2 2009 to 27,931,000 this year - up 3.4 per cent on a year-on-year basis.
