Orange Mobile Broadband Users Surge By 64%
Orange (orange.co.uk) has revealed a 64% increase in mobile broadband users on its network following the release of its latest quarterly results.
The communications company, which offers both home and mobile broadband services, saw its mobile broadband subscriber base swell to almost 4.7 million customers – a year on year increase of 64%.
However, it was not all good news for the France Telecom owned company as its fixed line home broadband service experienced a 12.2% drop in users to just under 900,000.
In a move to reverse the drop, Orange has recently revamped its range of home broadband plans by boosting download speeds to up to 20Mbps and removing any usage caps (fair usage policies apply).
Monthly prices for 20Mbps Orange Home Broadband (plus UK weekend calls) now start from just £6.50 with Orange mobile customers able to get the service free for the first 3 months.
Orange customers can also benefit from cheaper mobile broadband plans with prices starting at £4.89 a month for speeds up to 3.6Mbps. Non Orange customers need only pay £9.79 a month.
Orange was recently rated as the UK’s number one mobile broadband provider for getting connected and staying connected in a YouGov survey.
