Mobile operator Hutchison 3G has revealed what it will charge its first customers for 3G handsets and services when it launches the service early next year.
The mobile phone service, known simply as 3, will charge its first 20,000 customers, or "Founders" as it call them, £59.99 to £99.99 per month for a 12-month period.
The service is aimed at people and companies that use mobile phones a lot, and will include a significant amount of talk time in each bundle as well as video call minutes, text, picture and video messages, email and content.
"The promotional package is designed for heavy users. The prices are aimed at early adopters, who we know from our extensive consumer research are already very excited about everything that 3 has to offer," said a Hutchison spokesman.
Users will also have to purchase a phone separately, costing upwards of £399. The service will launch with a choice of three handsets, one from Motorola and two from NEC.
Mobile phone retail outfit Carphone Warehouse announced in a statement last Friday that it has signed a contract with Hutchison to sell the mobile operator's next-generation phones and services, which will soon be available across all of its 470 UK stores.
