1.35 million T-Mobile and Orange customers currently benefit from network sharing

1.35 million UK customers using T-Mobile and Orange have taken advantage of the network sharing scheme introduced earlier this month by parent company Everything Everywhere. Over 28 million people currently use the two networks in the UK. When a customer loses signal on their chosen network, they automatically pick up the signal from the other network where it's available. Those 1.35 million customers have made more than five million calls and sent more than twenty million texts while using the other brand's network.

Tom Alexander, CEO of Everything Everywhere, said "This is just the beginning of our hugely ambitious network plans and I’m delighted that we’ve enabled so many of our customers to make calls and send texts in more places by signing up to take advantage of our unique offer. 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."
