Attention mobile surfers out there! If you live in the UK and you are looking for a "cheap" way to go online with you mobile device - the new Orange mobile data plans might be something interesting for you, especially because Orange is well known for its Windows Mobile-based SPVs which brings the Internet to the palm of your hand and because it seems to be a real mobile data flat.
Today Orange announced several new plans to launch its new flat rate pricing for mobile data, making it easier for users to understand the costs involved when browsing the mobile internet.

From June, five new bundles, starting from just £1.00/1.47 Euro, mean both Pay Monthly and Pay As You Go customers can browse safe in the knowledge they will know exactly how much they will pay.

The five different pricing bundles are:

Orange Pay Monthly

  • Daily browsing for as little as £1.00/1.47 Euro = up to £31.00/45.50 Euro per month (for those who want to experience the mobile internet without worrying about the cost)
  • Monthly evening and weekend browsing for £5.00/7.34 Euro (for those who choose to browse mainly in the evening and at weekends)
  • Monthly Anytime browsing for £8.00/11.74 Euro (for seasoned surfers who demand great value for all their mobile browsing)

Orange Pay As You Go

  • Daily browsing for as little as £1.00/1.47 Euro = up to £31.00/45.50 Euro per month (for those who want to experience the mobile internet without worrying about the cost)
  • 7 day browsing for £5.00/7.34 Euro = up to £20.00/30.00 Euro per month (for frequent surfers, offering more than 25% off our already great value daily rate)

Orange has also put in place a price cap for customers who don't sign up to a bundle. These customers will be able to browse the mobile internet as they do now, but will only be charged up to a maximum of £1.50/2.20 Euro per day = up to £46.50/68.24 Euro per month (Pay Monthly) or £2.00/2.93 Euro per day = up to £62.00/90.98 Euro per month (Pay As You Go).

Jean-Pascal Van Overbeke, Vice President Mobile & Convergence for Orange, says "Our new pricing structure makes it easy for our customers to understand exactly what they are getting and for how long when they access the mobile internet. Customers can get access to the web on the move, without the fear of being caught out by any hidden charges."

Furthermore, all Orange customers will now have free access to their own personalized Orange World homepage, as well as news headlines and favorites. Customers will also benefit from free mobile internet searches and can browse the full catalogue of downloadable video, games, music and ring tones for free. If they see something they like while browsing, they pay just for the download, not the download traffic or any other hidden data charges. They can also make use of the Orange Local service for free throughout the summer (July – September inclusive), letting them know where they are and what they can get up to with information on restaurants, bars and local services.

Cheers ~ Arne
