T-Mobile Cuts Mobile Broadband (3G) Prices

Posted: 12th Oct, 2007 By: MarkJ
Mobile phone operator T-Mobile UK has announced the launch of a new pay-as-you-go ("pay-per-day") Mobile Broadband (3G) tariff, which costs between £1 and a maximum of £4 per day (does not require a contract).

In addition the mobile giant has also revealed a reduction to its existing prices by around £9 per month on specific packages. The changes will be formally introduced from 1st November 2007:

Customers can for the first time experience a high speed Internet connection wherever they are via a T-Mobile USB modem and their laptop, without the monthly commitment. Unlimited browsing allows customers to take full advantage of the internet, the way they like at any time, without the constraints of a fixed line, for no more than £4. Customers will be notified if they are using web’n’walk Plus Daily regularly enough to benefit from an upgrade to web n walk Plus or Max contract, which is now only £20 or £35 per month for unlimited web browsing!

T-Mobile has also confirmed that it will be permanently cutting the cost of its web‘n’walk Plus and web’n’walk Max price plans. The web’n’walk Plus package, which allows you to browse, email, download, stream and instant message, has been slashed from £29 a month to never more than £20 a month. Meanwhile, web’n’walk Max, which provides all the same benefits of web'n'walk Plus as well as Internet calling services like Skype, has been cut from £44 a month to never more than £35. The new web’n’walk tariffs are available to all existing customers as well as new customers available from now [EDIT: Fair Usage Policy applies].

That at least explains why T-Mobile circumvented the question of PAYG Mobile Broadband in our recent interview (here). Presently their 3G (HSPA) services offer speeds of up to 3.6Mbps and they're expecting to increase that to 7.2Mbps before the end of this year. However their website points out that the USB Data Modem only supports up to 1.8Mbps.

It's worth noting that T-Mobile's price reductions apply to people signing up for a 24 month contract, those preferring the 12 month option will have to pay for the old price points.

On top of all that the Fair Usage Policy (FUP) for Web'n'walk Plus specifies a guideline limit of 3GB per month, while Web'n'walk Max touts 10GB (very good for mobile technology). Overall we would have preferred to see a proper pay-as-you-go option (buy bandwidth and top it up as and when required) but no doubt that will come. For now, everything is an improvement.
