T-Mobile and Orange merger Next Month

Orange and T-Mobile will become a single entity at the start of April, with its direct and indirect B2B sales channels to be joined together by September.

Their respective Lawyers are expected to close the deal at a scheduled meeting next month and set up the new business with Companies House. It will be the first time they can share confidential financial and customer information.

Both Orange UK and T-Mobile UK will cease to exist from April 1. The new trading company name is yet to be revealed. Both brands will be retained for 18 months. But brands and assets will be controlled by the new trading entity.

Orange and T-Mobile retail stores are expected to work off the same systems by September also, with significant rationalisation of their combined estate of 615 shops.
