T-Mobile announces the launch of its 3G data cards, combined with the extension of its WiFi HotSpot access points across the UK and the introduction of a unique offer that provides unlimited usage of both the data cards and WiFi access on the same tariff. Aimed in particular at the travelling business person, T-Mobile is delivering unrivalled ability to access the internet and corporate systems at high speed and on the move.
The 3G data cards give access speeds of up to 128 KB, a speed which will progressively increase to 384 KB in the coming months and enable effective browsing of the internet, e-mail on the move and access to customers’ corporate data systems, as well as services such as video telephony, when used in conjunction with a camera either built into or attached to a laptop.
With the card, customers can have unlimited WiFi, GPRS, and 3G access, with seamless roaming between GPRS and 3G, depending on the coverage available. T-Mobile’s WiFi service, another unique offering among mobile operators is now available at over 500 locations in the UK (over 7,000 group-wide) and offers broadband internet access and services at speeds of over 1 MB. T-Mobile plans a very considerable increase in the roll-out of its WiFi HotSpots throughout the UK.
