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.


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