Orange Launches 5 Mobile Broadband Plan

Orange has expanded its mobile broadband portfolio, with a selection of new price plans including a mobile broadband plan for less than 5 a month for existing Orange customers. For 4.89 per month, all existing Orange mobile (pay monthly and pay-as-you-go) customers can enjoy the Orange Internet Everywhere service. Available on an 18 month contract, the 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 also functions as a memory stick.
Orange is also launching three 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. Oraneg says these 12-month tariffs are aimed at 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 whilst travelling to work.
Orange is also taking steps to provide consumers with greater control over their mobile broadband usage by launching new software that alerts them when they are approaching their usage threshold. All new and existing Orange mobile broadband customers can download this software for free here.
Orange is also introducing an automatic monthly bill cap which means that Orange mobile broadband customers will not be charged more than an extra 40 per month if they accidentally go over their monthly data allowance whilst using their dongle in the UK.
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, says Orange UK Director of Broadband and Home, Asif Aziz. 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 we really do offer great value for money.
Oranges mobile broadband was ranked number one for reliability in You Govs Dongle Tracker report in April 2009 and rated number one best network for 3G coverage by Ofcom in July 2009.
