T-Mobile announces its first 3G service across three markets

  • T-Mobile announces its first 3G service across three markets - UK, Germany and Austria
  • Communication Centre with Multimedia Net Card available from May
  • Exclusive introductory offer for business market from April – service free for first 3 months

18 March 2004, London.

T-Mobile today announced the launch of its first 3G service in the UK, Germany and Austria. The T-Mobile Communication Centre, packaged with the Multimedia Net Card, will be available to corporate and SME (small to medium enterprise) customers during April, with a full commercial launch following during May.

This announcement is the latest development in T-Mobile’s evolving strategy, unveiled at last month’s 3GSM Congress in Cannes, to provide a multimedia experience, bringing together network, devices, service, tariffs and customer service as one seamless end-to-end approach.

The T-Mobile Communication Centre provides high-speed access to office applications, making mobile working easier and faster, wherever customers are.

Brian McBride, Managing Director of T-Mobile UK, said: “Our vision is the creation of a multi-speed, multi-media network that integrates 2G, 3G and WLAN, and the launch of the T-Mobile Communication Centre is the next stage in the fulfilment of that vision. By enabling business customers to work remotely, at speeds similar to broadband, we are moving a step closer to seamless mobile working.”

As a special introductory offer, this package will be available exclusively to corporates and SMEs. The package includes:
• T-Mobile Communication Centre software – simple, 5-step installation
• Multimedia Net Card GPRS/3G - a plug-in card for laptops
• Easy-to-follow user manual

In a special introductory offer, the package costs just £199 plus a monthly fee of £70*, which includes unlimited data access regardless of the technology (2.5G, 3G or WiFi) being utilised. For a limited period from April, participating customers will also receive the first 3 months free.

Once installed, the package enables customers to connect to T-Mobile’s 3G and 2.5G multimedia network, to access email, download file attachments, surf the internet and, where applicable, their company intranet.

In addition, customers who have already invested in WLAN enabled laptops will also benefit from access to over almost 300 T-Mobile Hotspots throughout the UK, all controlled through Communication Centre software.

The T-Mobile Communication Centre will initially be sold via the T-Mobile direct sales force. Customers can register their interest by calling 0800 956 5001.
