Orange offers UK's first home broadband bundle with mobile minutes

Keep the bill down

Boost IT visibility and business value

Orange has launched a home broadband package that includes free call minutes to mobile phones, the first service of its kind in the UK, the cellco claimed.

With more folk than ever relying solely on their mobile, rather than using a landline too, Orange is attempting to reverse that trend with a new £20-a-month deal - £15 per month for existing Orange customers - which gives users 500 minutes of calls to mobile phones from landlines, in addition to 'unlimited' broadband, and calls to landlines at home and abroad.

New and existing customers who sign up in March 2012 will be given double their contracted allowance of airtime minutes.

The package also requires that you pay £13.50 each month for line rental.

The Orange Broadband and Anytime Mobile Calls plan is available from today. ®
