Orange adjust data roaming prices

Day rate's better value than the bundles

Seven Steps to Software Security

Orange has introduced new mobile broadband roaming prices that penalise bulk-buying.

Take the rates for Europe. Choose to pay £3 a day and you'll get 30MB to use up by midnight each day. That's 10p a megabyte. Use it for 30 days and you'll pay £90 in all and get 900MB of data.

Pick the 30-day bundles, available for £15, £50 and £150 offering allowances of, respectively, 30, 150 and 500MB, and you'll pay 50p, 33p or 30p for each megabyte.

If you don't choose one of these bundles, you'll pay 59p a megabyte if you're on a PAYG package, or £69.6p is you have a monthly subscription.

The out-of-bundle price covers the whole world - different bundles are available for different prices, depending on where you'll be travelling to. The 30MB daily bundle, for example, runs from £6 to £15 - still cheaper, on a per megabyte basis, than the out-of-bundle pricing, though that soon ceases to be the case when you take out the big 30-day packages, which run from £20 (30MB, Zone 1) to £400 (500MB, Zone 3). ®
