Orange offers cut-price broadband

First move for Wanadoo's Orange makeover

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Orange has teamed up with sibling Wanadoo to offer its new punters 2 meg broadband for £9.99 a month.

The deal marks the first step on the path to rebrand Wanadoo under the Orange livery as part of a massive makeover announced in June by parent company France Telecom (FT).

As part of FT's NExT (New Experience in Telecom services) proposals, the Wanadoo brand is to be scrapped and rebranded as Orange.

FT claims this €200m makeover will "give customers access to a universe of services that are both high value and simple".

Rebranding is due to kick off in the UK next year although this announcement provides a taster of what's to come as FT's mobile (Orange) and internet (Wanadoo) divisions work ever closer together.

As part of this time-limited promo offer, new Orange mobile customers will be able to sign up to 2 meg broadband for £9.99 a month. Existing punters can also take advantage of the offer if they extend their mobile contract.

Eric Abensur, CEO of Wanadoo UK, said the offer "marks the start of an exciting future of compelling deals for customers of Wanadoo and Orange". ®
