Belfast, 14 Feb 2006:  T-Mobile flexed its global muscles today when it became the first UK mobile phone company to launch a flat rate tariff for post-pay (contract) users of just 25p per minute for mobile calls made throughout Ireland and also to the rest of the world. 

The ‘World Class’ tariff will allow T-Mobile UK users to make calls from Ireland or Northern Ireland through the Meteor network, making it the most cost effective and widest roaming tariff of any UK operators.   

There is no charge for customers to enjoy the reduced rates. All T-Mobile customers need to do is register for the World Class service either on the T-Mobile website (www.t-mobile.co.uk) or by calling customer services on 150 from their handset or 0845 412 5000 from landline.

Colin Gibson, Head of Business Sales T-Mobile Northern Ireland said; “The World Class tariff is a direct response to the needs of T-Mobile customers in Northern Ireland.  The T-Mobile World Class tariff is not only the most cost effective roaming solution of any UK Mobile phone operators, it is also free to all T-Mobile customers.  We wanted to provide a simple, transparent offering for our UK customers who travel throughout Ireland and at 25p per minute for calls made to Northern Ireland, the rest of the UK or in fact anywhere in the world, it doesn’t get any more transparent. 

T-Mobile UK Director of Business Sales, Simon Ainslie, added; “It is vital that we provide a seamless service that allows people to travel across borders without worrying about the bill they will return to 

“We have been working with DETI for some time now to develop an initial roaming solution to what is a major issue for many of our Northern Irish customers.  This tariff is not just a first step to providing a better deal for T-Mobile UK customers making calls throughout Ireland but also globally.”
