Around two thirds of mobile users have pre-pay mobiles, which is probably the reason why T-Mobile are extending their web’n’walk service into what they see as the "mass market" at a cost of £1 per day.
From 1st August, pay-as-you-go customers will be able to pay a maximum of £1 a day to access web’n’walk – T-Mobile’s ‘real’ (as in not cut down) mobile internet service. You can search the web or check your email, with each kilobyte of data charged at 0.73 pence. Once you reach £1, you’ll pay nothing more for rest of the day.
The range of web’n’walk handsets on pay-as-you-go currently includes the Motorola V3, the Nokia 6131, the Nokia 6233, the Sony Ericsson K750i and the Samsung E870. The number of web’n’walk devices will reach 25 by Autumn this year, according to T-Mobile.
