Orange Unlimited Internet

Hi Guys,

Just thought I would let those on Orange who are interested know that I have managed to get the Unlimited Internet browsing bundle with Orange for 8 month which launched today and reported in the last month in the press.

I originally phoned up about it but they were trying to fob me off with a 30mb month limit, but I called up again and after a few minitues on hold, they managed to track down the package on the system

I was also told that unlimited really does mean unlimited as there will be no 1gb month useage cap as has been the case on the unlimited evening/weekend and trial packages. Having said that, she did mention it being for browsing tho which suggest were technically not allowed to download videos or use VOIP, altho this was not explicitly stated.

Cheers,

Matt

Really?? How did you do this? I am mad about the 30Mb cap being announced on their website. I only just joined Orange and this was one of the main reasons...

Is there anything on their website about this, because I cant find it.

Is it business customer only?

Is it just WAP browsing, or if I use my phone as a bluetooth modem for my laptop, is this included in the 8?

I'm on free evening & weekend bundle at the moment, but have been told its only WAP browsing thats allowed, which is not much use to me.

Thanks

I'm on the free evening & weekend bundle at the moment too, and was intending on start paying 5 a month to carry on using it after the 2 months. I do use it occasionally as a bluetooth modem though - seems to work fine, and no one has complained yet...

This is what I've come up with so far and it sounds good, I'm on 02 and its a pity they dont do anything similar.

"Orange has introduced flat-rate mobile data bundles for the first time.

The operator's contract customers will be able to sign up for a bundle allowing them unlimited surfing for £8 per month. A bundle for evening and weekend browsing is priced at £5 per month. Alternatively, customers can opt for a daily cap of £1 per day.

The bundles make Orange the latest operator to adopt a flat-rate approach to its mobile-data pricing. Vodafone, T-Mobile and 3 already offer flat-rate pricing."
