Broadband provider T-Mobile has announced a new offer for BlackBerry customers.
The new Pay Once concept grants unlimited mobile broadband and email access for a year with the purchase of a new silver BlackBerry Pearl 8110.
A fair usage policy applies to the internet and email access. Customers pay a one-off fee of £179.99 for the handset and mobile broadband deal, but will need to top-up the handset as usual to make calls and send text messages.
Richard Warmsley, Head of Internet and Entertainment at T-Mobile UK, said: "T-Mobile's Pay Once BlackBerry is the world's first package to offer a year's instant email and internet for a one-off payment.
"When life can feel busier than ever, it's even more important that everyone has the right to easy email and web access to keep friends and family close, and to help to organise their busy lives."
Orange recently announced the extension of its free Business Internet Service (BIS) deal. Customers who sign up to a 12-month Business Solo or Business Infinity contract by May 31st will gain free mobile broadband services on BlackBerry handsets.
