Orange Mobile Broadband Cut Euro Roaming Fees
Orange (orange.co.uk) has cut its daily roaming fees for customers using its mobile broadband service in Europe.
Customers opting into Orange’s new daily bundle can now get 2MB’s of data per day for £2.
If 2MB is not enough data for one day, Orange also has another daily roaming package that offers 50MB’s of data for £8.50.
According to Orange, 2MB’s of data will typically enable a user to view up to 100 web pages, up to 20 images, access up to 100 emails and view thousands of Twitter messages.
Commenting on the news, Orange’s Olaf Swantee said: “Our customers shouldn’t be constrained by national boundaries or worries over their bill when they’re abroad”.
Swantee continued: “For roughly the price of a cup of coffee, we are helping our customers keep doing what they’re doing – it’s not designed for heavier users who use the mobile internet to download music or games but for everyday customers who want to be able to check their emails, tweet or upload their pictures to social networking sites, anywhere they may be within the EU”.
As part of Orange’s plan to help their users avoid ‘bill shock’, the operator will be sending warning text messages to customers who approach their 2MB daily data limit.
Options to buy another 2MB’s of data will be given and if not taken, users will be reverted to Orange’s standard out of bundle roaming charges which are higher.
Orange was recently ranked the UK’s number one mobile broadband provider for a second time following January’s YouGov Dongle Tracker survey.
It’s mobile broadband packages start from just £5 a month for 500MB of data usage.
