T-Mobile to start 3G services in May in Germany, UK and Austria
T-Mobile will offer a new mobile data communications services to current T-Mobile’s business and residential customers. Maximum bandwidths of up to 384 kbit/s can be obtained via the new network. The company says that in future, the networks launch will give T-Mobile customers access to a full-service offer for mobile voice and data communications via UMTS, GPRS or W-LAN. This integrated approach forms the basis for TM3, the brand for T-Mobile multimedia.

One of T-Mobile’s first offers is the new Communication Center which will be launched in May: the Multimedia Net Card, a plug-in card for laptops and communications software for simple access to applications like the internet or e-mail. The Communication Center offers more flexibility and efficiency for business customers and can be used anywhere. In combination with W-LAN-capable notebooks, the Communication Center automatically ensures that the quickest T-Mobile network is chosen. At T-Mobile HotSpots, this is W-LAN, at all other locations 3G or GPRS, depending on availability.

T-Mobile has also based its mobile phone portfolio on handsets that support the T-Mobile multimedia experience. All models presented at CeBIT 2004 enable quick, uncomplicated access to t-zones, T-Mobile’s mobile online portal. For example, the UMTS-capable Nokia 7600 supports the Mobile Jukebox service and the viewing of video clips via t-zones.

T-Mobile was showing examples of seamless mobile services with the Mobile Jukebox and Mobile Newspaper presentations. Both services can be used with both GPRS-capable and 3G-capable mobile phones. With the Mobile Jukebox, users choose a title in t-music via the quick t-zones access, select the song and then download it as they like onto a GPRS or 3G mobile phone. The marketing launch is planned for April 2004. With Mobile Newspaper, T-Mobile presents an information service that provides compact news articles with full text and colour photographs. Subscribers to the service receive updates at least twice a day, on news, sport, business and weather. T-Mobile plans to launch this service in the summer of this year.

New, volume-based rates supplement the T-Mobile multimedia offering. The new tariff option Data Flat 500 includes up to 500 megabytes in the monthly basic price of EUR 110. From May, customers will also be able to choose a time-based offer. In this case, customers would receive, for example, a certain quota of minutes per month for the transfer of mobile data. A seamless tariff model is planned for the summer, i. e. T-Mobile multimedia will offer a uniform tariff, regardless of whether customers surf the internet or call up e-mails via GPRS, 3G or W-LAN.

The company promisses to cover more than 200 cities and have a network coverage of 40 percent of the population in Germany at the time of the launch.
