Orange expands mobile broadband

Orange has expanded its mobile broadband portfolio with a selection of new price plans that include a new offer of mobile broadband for less than £5 a month for existing Orange customers.

Orange is also introducing an automatic monthly bill cap which means that from today, all Orange mobile broadband customers will not be charged more than an extra £40 a month if they accidentally go over their monthly data allowance while using their dongle in the UK.

For only £4.89 per month, all existing Orange mobile pay monthly, pay as you go and home broadband customers can enjoy the Orange Internet Everywhere service. Available on an 18 month contract, this package comes with a usage allowance of 500Mb per month and download speeds of up to 3.6mbps.

Customers also receive a free Huawei E160e dongle in either black, white or pink which has been designed to also act as a memory stick so customers can keep their photos, music and films with them whilst on the move.

Starting at just under £13 per month, Orange is also launching three unique Early Bird tariffs, providing customers with unlimited mobile broadband between midnight and 9am in addition to their standard data allowance of either 1GB, 3GB or 10GB. These 12 months tariffs are well suited for those who want the freedom to download that little bit more without the worry of the cost, particularly those that download music or video clips, or commuters wanting to download large attachments on a regular basis while travelling to work.

Asif Aziz, director of broadband and home at Orange UK, commented: “We are committed to building our mobile broadband portfolio so it provides customers with a range of flexible solutions to suit the lifestyle they choose. We also want to ensure we reward existing Orange customers, and believe that by offering them the cheapest pay monthly mobile broadband on the market.”
