Because fuck you, Three
Everything Everywhere will change its identity before the end of 2012 - but will NOT merge its Orange and T-Mobile brands, which will continue to confuse punters indefinitely. Orange and T-Mobile are, and will remain, consumer brands for Everything Everywhere, the UK's largest mobile operator. EE will announce a new moniker in …
Because fuck you, Three
Perhaps then O4 to raise their middle fingers at O2 too...
Gets one over on all the competition!
well if you dont like three,f..k off over to someone else to be ripped of by,probably for twice as much for a service that wont be twice as good,nobody holding shotgun to yer head.
there are things i hate about three,but then i dont expect rolls royce build when paying ford prices,if your one of the lucky ones who actualy get a decent signal on three,then yer getting a great deal,if like me you get a shite signal on three then its not such a great deal,but why would i pay orange etc 4 times as much just to get the same crap service as three,have tried all the networks in my bit of watford multiple times over and over again,their all crap,its just others charge much more for same crap service.
due to geography,i wont get decent signal from anyone until a new tower is put up in a different position,its one of the problems with having a ground floor flat that is built into a hill side,if we could talk three into fitting local femtocell i would get great signal,but as the problem is very localised and only affects about 300 properties,its just not worth it for economic reasons.yes,its bloody annoying,but nobody comes round my flat with a baseball bat and forces me to give three £15 a month.
as stated above,if you dont like three,piss off else where,or are you one of the whiners who can shift 30gb+ a month but dont like threes crud customer service,try orange,i had to threaten to blow down their tower to get them to stop billing my bank,4 months after having been through their cut off dept,that would have netted them £240 quid and i was'nt even able to use phone,i had them lock it as stolen,and phone number had been killed and put back into their system for several years and sim itself had been returned as well.
when you find a provider that gives you everything you want,at a price you think is fair,let the rest of us know,there are a few others as well as myself who would move over rapidly.
I'd settle on somebody that doesn't spy on my every move online as well as double traffic to the websites I visit thanks to their stalking. Both Vodafone and 3 and their US friend Bluecoat seem to enjoy getting involved in this side of things...
I think you've completely missed the point of this whole thread with that rant and made yourself look a bit silly...
Something Somewhere Somehow?
I know it's not the shortest or snappiest, but it describes what I think of them.
Maybe shorten it it S3?
...Someone's gonna pay!
Oh wait that was the tagline for Commando. Send in Arnie.
"Never knowingly provided Customer Service"
It won't work... an S3 is a shit, shower and shave... then again!
No. Please. Don't.
O <sub>2</sub> is bad enough, without people trying to subvert numerical powers to make their brand sound cool.
If that was the case, I think we should vote:
e-Mobilitative Inter-Facilities Solutions mc^2 Inc. Ltd. PLC. GmbH.
How about 'compu-global-hyper-mega-net'? (with apologies to the script writers of the Simpsons)
The article states that Everything Everywhere is essentially an empty promise so I would like to suggest that as its new moniker.
Doesn't sound that snappy, but you could paint Mr T orange and use him as your spokesperson.
Which would provide immediate brand recognition in the over 30s!
And when you buy a phone you get a free box of orange flavoured tea..
and give out orange tee shirts!
They may even have some left over...
For the northern markets, especially Yorkshire, it could create a portemanteau of it's 2 brands : t'orange.
'EE By Gum' for the northists
A: What network tha on?
A: Am on't t-mobahhhl me, ats oreet, a dunt get signal on t'orange near are 'ouse
B: t'orange is t-mobahhhhl an t'orange but all bunched up like
A: wo tha onnabout now?

Something Somewhere (But Not Here)
For managing to get a Porcupine Tree reference into a telecoms story!
Well he is good colour match for the two networks.
Or is that already taken?
or you could drop the "n" and move the "e"
I know - Banana! Banana-phone!
I've even thought of a jingle for the ads.
Because that's what they currently offer.
LTE Me Up Scotty
How about "The Goodies -- anything, anywhere, anytime"
Anything up to five bloody mobile phone shops per high street replacing former useful stores. What do they offer ? Essentially identical phones and tariffs sufficiently mixed up to make choosing a pain in the ass.
Everywhere and nothing indeed.
"Not As Bad As Virgin"
Amazing how so many people don't get this.
"Virgin Mobile does not maintain its own network, and instead has contracts to use the existing network of Everything Everywhere. "
I knew Virgin sublet their network I just didn't realise it was from EE. Thanks for the clarification.
No surprise. lots of Virgin are based on some other company doing half the work on the quiet and the beardie smiler contributing the brand
Virgin Trains (real name "West Coast Trains Limited" - Stagecoach Group
Virgin Credit card - MBNA Europe
Virgin Finance - started with Norwich Union
Virgin Atlantic - Singapore Airways
That is all.
They should just call themselves ZTE and be done with it because that's who will own all the comms companies in 10 years time anyway.
Is g4s taken?. thats a popular and respected sounding name.
Clockwork-Orange, says it all.
How about CompuGlobalHyperMegaNet?
