E-Plus, O2 to start national roaming in April

Wednesday 4 March 2015 | 10:39 CET | News
Telefonica Germany will start merging the O2 and E-Plus networks from mid-April. As a result, 3G customers will be able to use both networks via national roaming, allowing improved coverage and speeds. The roaming also applies to the operators' brands Simyo, Base, Fonic and Aldi Talk. Telefonica expects to take up to five years to complete the integration of its own infrastructure with E-Plus.
