T-Mobile will launch Euro Broadband Boosters to its business customers on the 1st March. The new offering aims to help break down potential barriers for UK companies doing business in the EU by providing businesses with greater transparency on the costs of accessing the internet while abroad. There will be a choice of Boosters for the business traveller to pick from dependent on their needs – from a quick e-mail check, to more regular browsing, or urgent downloads. This variety ensures that the most suitable offering is available to deliver optimum value, visibility and control of business expenditure while travelling in the EU. All Boosters are bought through a simple webpage that opens automatically when the browser is accessed in Europe.
T-Mobile has four Euro Broadband Boosters to choose from:
· 3MB for £1 with about 15 minutes online checking email
· 20MB for £5 with about 2 hours online usage
· 50MB for £10 with one days use
· 200MB for £40 with 30 days usage
The 3MB, 20MB and 50MB Euro Broadband Boosters all last for up to 24 hours from when the Booster is purchased; the 200MB Booster lasts for up to 30 days from when the Booster is bought. The user’s remaining time or allowance is easily visible through a status webpage letting them check where they are with their Booster credit at any time. This webpage reappears when their allowance or time has expired, to let them buy another Booster if they choose to stay online.
Ralf Pearson, Senior Propositions Manager for Mobile Broadband at T-Mobile said: “We recognise that Mobile Broadband access is vital to the ability of business travellers to work effectively while travelling abroad - whether it’s accessing email, working on presentations, or downloading important attachments ahead of meetings. Euro Broadband Boosters bring a high level of transparency to the cost of Mobile Broadband access whilst abroad. This proposition offers business customers a range of better value, worry-free options, built to suit their different online needs while they’re travelling on business.”
