Orange restyles mobile broadband deals

Chiswick, fresh contracts

Security for virtualized datacentres

Orange has tweaked its mobile broadband contracts, adjusting its existing deals slightly and introducing its 'animal' branding to the array of tariffs on offer.

Contracts continue to run for a month or 18 months, with Huawei's E1752 modem respectively setting punters back £29 or nothing at all. Orange is also offering Option's 515M dongle for £50 on the one-month tariff or £20 on the other.

After choosing your contract duration, you now have the pick of three packages: Panther, Dolphin or Racoon. The latter is the cheap one: £5 or £10 a month on an 18-month contract with, respectively 500MB and 1.5GB monthly data allowances, or £10 per month with a 1GB allowance on a one-month term. The £5 offer is only available to Orange monile customers.

Dolphin costs £15 per month, with the one-month contract bringing in 2GB of data transfer, rising to 3GB if you tie in for 18 months. Punters can also pick a "Happy Hour" for 60 minues' unlimited access: 8-9am, 12-1pm, 4-5pm or 10-11pm.

Panther costs £25 or £35 a month, one-month contract or 18, respectively, with 10GB or 'unlimited' data usage. Unlimited, as ever, has a fair use limit.

Orange said Panther, Dolphin and Racoon plans are also available with Asus Eee PC 1005HGO netbook or HP's Compaq CQ61 notebook on two-year plans. The computer is free, but you pay an extra £15-20 over the regular month fee.

The new plans are available from today. ®
