On the same day the company confirmed that "roaming across both networks [would be] due later in that year, at no additional cost to the customer" and further emphasised the separation of the brands at that present moment in time, saying that each brand would maintain "its own shops, marketing campaigns, propositions and service centres".
The "switch-on" was rolled out utilising an opt-in page on each brand's website. However, the rollout did not initially include automatic network roaming mid-call or the two brands' 3G services. Alexander had joined Orange in and had led the company since its formation on 1 July Alexander said that he would remain with the company throughout the remainder of and continue to advise Swantee in his new role.
On 2 November Everything Everywhere announced plans to cut a further back office staff, with its sites in Bristol, Darlington, Hatfield, and Paddington affected. Rebranding[ edit ] Everything Everywhere announced on 22 August that it would introduce a third brand as part of a future 4G launch to sit alongside Orange and T-Mobile, and that Everything Everywhere would continue as the company's legal name.
The company also announced that they would be using two 4G mobile broadband devices manufactured by Huawei - the E Mobile Wi-Fi device and E mobile broadband dongle. It was also confirmed that all ex-Orange and ex-T-Mobile shops would be re-branded EE overnight, but that mobile products would continue to be sold under those brands inside the stores.
The phase out was completed in Marchwith new connections and upgrades only available on EE branded services. It will serve customers with mobile services, broadband and TV, and also continue to deliver the Emergency Services Network contract which was awarded to EE in late It also has around retail outlets across the country.
In order to achieve this, EE will build more than new sites. Its 4G network was switched on today in Shetland and the Isles of Scillyenabled by the fibre broadband links deployed by BT.
Its 4G network at launch was only used for data connections, with customers moving to 3G while on a call, however EE are now rolling out 4G Calling VoLTE across the UK to allow both voice and data over 4G as well as allowing customers to make calls in new areas of the network that are 4G-only.
The data upload speeds will also be doubled from the current maximum of 50Mbps to up to Mbps on more than sites across the UK. This involved upgrading more than 4, existing sites to provide 4G, and the construction of new sites which are spread across Northern EnglandNorth Wales and Scotland and is in the process of building a further new sites to continue filling in mobile not-spots.
Many of these new sites are in areas that have previously had no coverage from any operator and have already carried more than emergency calls where people would have previously been unable to call for help. It also lays the foundation for its 5G network that will be launched in where it will be built on top of the upgraded sites.
The joint venture was designed to be a "single point of contact" for all those involved in increasing the adoption of using NFC for mobile payments in the UK. The technology was initially trialled on Orange's network in BristolReading and Southamptonbefore it was expanded to the rest of the UK by the end of summer.
It is available at no extra cost to new and existing customers and is part of its strategy to "keep customers connected by bringing together the best of mobile and broadband through first-of-their-kind converged services across the UK".
It supports up to 5 other connected devices and will need to be internet connected via Wi-Fi or mobile, with the primary device being connected to the EE network for the service to work. Calls can be made on multiple devices at the same time, or handed off between devices.
It is available initially on Apple devices, with Android devices coming at a later date. Customers will need to be on a EE pay monthly plan on their smartphone with minimum iOS The six new stores were described as "concession-within-stores".
This meant that a selection of Orange propositions would be sold and promoted in the three T-Mobile stores being opened and that a range of T-Mobile propositions would be merchandised in the three Orange stores. They were described as concessions as the host brand would take the overall lead.
These stores sell both brands' products, services and accessories; they were also designed to a give an "inspire, excite and educate" experience.
The first store launch was in Altrincham on 18 Februarya little over a week after the initial announcement on 10 February The other stores were launched in Bishop's StortfordElthamLowestoft and Evesham within four weeks of the Altrincham shop launch.
Everything Everywhere made a concerted effort to launch stores in "white-spot areas", or stores where they had little or no existing footprint from Orange or T-Mobile. These were designed to operate as normal Orange retail stores, however with an expected lower footfall and designed to cater for HMV's younger consumers.
Its total number of franchise outlets will grow from the current 25 to by the end of the year which includes the transfer of 45 directly managed stores to franchise partners.
The move sees its total number of retail stores reduce from to including franchise outlets. The deal safeguards jobs and the stores will be rebranded to EE, with plans to open most by next week. It is also launching a variety of new store formats:Our Fixed Price Plans.
