T-Mobile has extended its ‘web n walk’ internet browsing service to pay-as-you-go mobile customers. From 1st August, users will be able to pay a maximum GBP1 a day rate to access the internet.
Launched last October for pay monthly customers, ‘web n walk’ allows customers to browse the web pages they choose, not just those selected by their network the ‘cut-down’ web pages previously available on mobiles.
T-Mobile says that with two thirds of mobile customers on pay-as-you-go, the new service will open the way for mobile internet to become a mass market service.
The web n walk service charges 0.73 pence for each kilobyte of data, until the customer has spent GBP1 – after which, customers will pay nothing more for rest of the day.
The range of web n walk handsets on pay-as-you-go will include devices such as the Motorola V3, the Nokia 6131, the Nokia 6233, the Sony Ericsson K750i and the Samsung E870.
Phil Chapman, director of marketing for T-Mobile UK, said, We strongly believe that in future, mobile will be individuals’ primary means of accessing the internet, just as it already is for voice communications.
