Okay, it's not that kind of great flat fee as the E-Plus offer for GPRS and UMTS where you can use 'all' Internet services (except VoIP) but something happens again and yes, it's another big step into the right (flat fee) direction: T-Mobile Netherlands now offers a flat web'n'walk "web access" for the fixed price of 9.50 Euro per month. Customers will be able to make use of unlimited access to the Internet on their web'n'walk devices (which also includes Windows Mobile Pocket PC such as the HTC Magician aka T-Mobile MDA compact or Universal aka T-Mobile MDA Pro).

Together with Google and Ilsa Media, T-Mobile has designed an internet start page for users to search through the real Internet (not WAP, even if it is WAP 2.0) with the search engine users and customers are used to use - Google - or set up another page as their start page.

"T-Mobile Pocket Internet Totaal" (as it is called in Dutch) is available in combination with a Relax subscription including 150 minutes or greater only but well, at least there is no data limit.

T-Mobile's web'n'walk was introduced by several T-Mobile shares across Europe earlier this year but right now, T-Mobile Netherlands is the only T-Mobile share which offers a "flat web'n'walk" fee.

Cheers ~ Arne

T-Mobile Poland (known there as "Era GSM") offers already flat rate Internet over UMTS combined with flat rate over Wi-Fi hotspots. It is only a question of time when T-Mobile Germany will start offering it too.

Interesting. Wonder why you have never posted in on one of your websites? Also, if T-Mobile Poland offers flat already, you should update your world wide flat map (http://msmobiles.com/catalog/i.php/578.html).

But anyway, IMHO before we see flat UMTS from T-Mobile Germany we will see flat web'n'walk from them. Flat web'n'walk is similar to O2 Germany's flat O2 Active pack. However, I prefer web'n'walk since it isn't limited to WAP 2.0 but gives me the full W3 experience.

You are right - I should update it - I must yet double check it - whether this offer is also for consumers and not just for companies...

regarding: web'n'walk : please post some news item about it - I don't quite understand what it is? does it give flat rate web browsing? or what it is?

I have corrected
http://msmobiles.com/catalog/i.php/578.html
to include Poland now.

Polish operator "Plus GSM" (that is partially owned by Vodafone) started this month a service iPlus that offers flat rate Internet in all (!) 3 standards: GPRS, EDGE and UMTS - with very good coverage for EDGE!

The service of Era GSM (polish operator owned partially by T-Mobile Germany) of flat rate Internet is for enteprises only so I have not included it.

I wish no only UK could introduce flat rate too...
