London, UK – 9 January 2007: WiFi and high-speed 3G (HSDPA) are being fused together for the first time today. T-Mobile announces the integration of its ground-breaking web’n’walk price plan with its UK network of WiFi HotSpots to offer its customers the best mobile data network, with unprecedented access to broadband on the go at unbeatable prices.



The largest provider of public WiFi in the world, T-Mobile is the first UK Mobile Broadband operator to offer access to a WiFi network as part of a mobile broadband price plan. Starting at £12.50 per month (when connecting with a Flext mobile contract), the service gives you access to the internet through using your laptop. Additionally, it lets you access the WiFi network on a huge range of locations like Starbucks coffee shops, airports, main-line train stations, service stations and hundreds of other locations in the UK, without paying extra to connect to wireless hotspots. Without T-Mobile’s web’n’walk price plan, access to WiFi costs from £5 for 60 minutes (one off or occasional access), or from £10 per month for subscription.

Richard Warmsley, T-Mobile’s Head of Internet on the Move, said: “We’ve already built a market-leading high-speed 3G network nationwide, now we’re strengthening our lead in mobile broadband by adding our WiFi HotSpots to Web’n’walk Plus / Max price plans. So, as well as comprehensive 3G HSDPA coverage, you can be sure of a fast connection where it matters most – whether it’s in Starbucks, the airport, train stations or any other HotSpot location – at no extra cost.


“We’re the only network to include unlimited use of our own HotSpots. We recognise that it’s a quick reliable connection that matters most, not the technology you use to get online. We also know that customers don’t get bits and bytes so we focus on simple fixed price plans that never have any extra charges, no matter how much surfing you need. Now with our recent 3 network collaboration and the addition of HotSpots in our plans you can be sure that T-Mobile offers the best Mobile Broadband service in the UK.”



The new deal means T-Mobile and 3 will integrate their 3G radio access networks (the mobile masts and the infrastructure that connects to each operator’s core network), creating Europe’s most extensive HSDPA network. This will lead to almost complete population coverage for 3G services across Britain by the end of 2008 with significant fill in and improvement to dense urban in-building coverage in 2009. The ground-breaking network collaboration will accelerate the take up of high-speed mobile broadband services.



As the largest provider of public WiFi in the world, T-Mobile customers can also take advantage of 39,000 WiFi HotSpots across the globe.
