Orange and T-Mobile customers have made an extra five million calls and sent 20 million extra texts since the companies’ umbrella brand Everything Everywhere began offering subscribers to access both networks at no extra cost.
By signing up for a SIM card update at either at www.orange.co.uk/share or www.t-mobile.co.uk/share, customers can benefit from call and send texts on either network.
Once in the scheme, consumers who lose signal on their existing network, will automatically pick up the signal from the other network where it’s available.
Tom Alexander, CEO of Everything Everywhere, said: The next benefit, due in spring next year, will enable our customers to experience enhanced data and Internet coverage, as well as the ability to make calls and send texts in more places.
“We’ll also be enhancing our services so that customers can automatically switch to whichever network has the strongest signal while they’re mid-call, keeping them close to the people, places and things that matter to them, wherever they are.”
News of developments comes as, Everything Everywhere earlier this month announced it is planning to roll out six branded stores in the run-up to Christmas.
