    Why not just call the sim card that as well?

    Edit: sim card, network provider you know what i mean.

    Weren't t-mobile a merger between five or six companies already?
    That doesn't seem fair.

    Entirely wiping out all competition seems like a bad move for the economy to me.

    Now I wonder if this is real 4G or the 3GPP being sold as 4G elsewhere.

    Why is that? There are plenty of new companies moving uphill, and its a matter of time till we see more major operators.

    The name is.. meh.. "I use everything everywhere" o.o

    A lack of competition allows companies to push prices up, which ultimately leads to people having less money and therefore results in a poor economy.

    I heard a while back that Orange and t-mobile customers could use each other's signal. Didn't realise they had actually merged into one company.

    Anyway, I think the name is bad and this in general is bad. As I mentioned, a lack of competition drives up prices. I hope O2 don't jump on the bandwagon or anything.

    LOL yeah probably. A lot of people say "3G" instead of Three.
    Their fault for naming it 3 -.-.

    IMO 3 has the best offers in the past years. My first contract with them was 14.99 with Nokia E63 for free. That was a few years back and the IMO best deals ever since.

    I'm starting to get annoyed with the name "Everything everywhere" because you don't get data if you switch networks. It's all well and good that they're trialling 4G but until they even support 3G then what's the point?
