According to the company, the new tariffs will reduce by half the cost of data roaming for new and existing registered business customers on the network. Prices will be reduced from £7.50 per MB to £3 per MB when roaming in Austria, Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, the UK and the USA, with prices applicable to data both sent and received.
According to Derek Williamson, Head of Business Marketing, T-Mobile UK: “As part of this commitment, we are always looking to review our roaming costs and strive to offer the most competitive tariffs where possible. There is increasing demand for access to key business information whilst on the move both here in the UK and Abroad. This announcement will ensure that our business customers can benefit from improved communications and increased business efficiency through the freedom to use mobile data services, in key business locations, at a significantly reduced cost.”
An announcement on a reduction in consumer charging is expected to follow later in the year.
