Orange 3G Wireless Service

December 6th, 2004

Orange finally rolled out its 3G service today after a series of delay. A couple of points to keep in mind though:

  • Behind Vodafone and 3 in UK. mmO2 is coming.
  • 2 million subscribers in UK by 2006, 10K in France by end of 2004.
  • Coverage: 70% UK population, 11 major cities.
  • Phones: from Sanyo (S750), LG (U1850), Sony Ericsson, Samsung (Z107). (Nokia is notably missing.)
  • Data: 50MB data & 60 mins video-calling included in basic plan ranging from 30 to 70 pound.

UPDATE:

On Jan 3, 2005, Orange officially announced that they signed up 16,500 3G users in France in the last month of 2004.
