Everything Everywhere (EE) has completed the final stage of its "big switch-on", which allows Orange and T-Mobile to share 3G mobile broadband signal.

The initiative, called Smart Signal Sharing, means that if a customer starts to lose service on a dongle, tablet or smartphone, reception will be automatically prioritised from the other network.

According to EE, the service will ensure subscribers can access "fast, uninterrupted 3G" in more places than ever before.

The move comes as part of the network operator's £1.5 billion infrastructure evolution project, which involves £1.4 million of investment every day.

Olaf Swantee, chief executive of EE, said: "The launch is yet another proof point to our commitment to provide our customers with the best network in the UK - now and in the future."

Also this week, Ofcom gave an update on EE's plan to vary its 1,800MHz spectrum to support 4G mobile broadband technology.

The regulator explained its consultation on the issue has closed and a response on the proposals will be published as soon as possible.
