Everything Everywhere announced as name for T-Mobile and Orange merger

DETAILS of the joint venture between two mobile phone giants have been revealed.

Everything Everywhere is the name of the new company formed through the merger of Hatfield-based T-Mobile and Bristol-based Orange.

It was announced this week that Everything Everywhere would allow both T-Mobile and Orange to continue trading under their current brand names, but would combine the two operators into a single, “super” network.

And that could mean good news for the 3,000 or so employees at T-Mobile’s headquarters in Hatfield Business Park, following uncertainty over where Everything Everywhere would be basing its operations.

When the merger was originally approved by the European Commission back in March, speculation over possible job cuts or a potential move away from Times Territory led to Welwyn Hatfield politicians visiting T-Mobile managing director Richard Moat in a bid to persuade the company to stay.
