T-Mobile customers can finally get a discount on Orange Home Broadband, like Orange mobile customers have been able to for a while now.
Open to T-Mobile Pay Monthly and pay-as-you-go customers, Orange Home Broadband can be snapped up from just £5 a month. Download speeds of up to 20Mbps and unlimited usage is included as standard.
Available with bundles of landline calls, Orange Home Broadband comes in three flavours; Broadband & Off Peak Calls (£5/month), Broadband & Anytime Calls (£10 a month) and Broadband & Anytime Mobile Calls (£15/month).
Calls to 01, 02, 03, 0845 and 0870 numbers are covered and the off peak period starts at 7pm and ends at 7am. Broadband & Anytime Mobile calls also includes calls to selected international landlines, as well as calls to 500 minutes of calls to UK mobile numbers from your landline.
There’s no connection or install fee and the Orange Bright Box router, normally £95, is bunged in gratis.
T-Mobile Orange Home Broadband: Free Orange Wednesdays
On top of all this, T-Mobile customers signing up for Orange Broadband will be able to get in on the two-for-one Orange Wednesdays action. Presumably this means that the Orange Wednesdays app should now also work on T-Mobile iPhones.
There’s also the option to take McAfee Antivirus Plus 2012 if you’ve not already got security software.
T-Mobile Orange Home Broadband: Line rental and total prices
Line rental, paid to Orange, costs £13.50/month. This works brings the total monthly costs of each package to:
T-Mobile Orange Home Broadband & Off Peak Calls: £18.50/month
T-Mobile Orange Home Broadband & Anytime Calls: £23.50/month
T-Mobile Orange Home Broadband & Anytime Mobile Calls: £28.50/month
An active BT phone line is required, even though you don’t pay line rental to BT.
If you’re not covered by the Orange Home Broadband network (which currently covers 85 per cent of the UK) then you’ll only be able to get top speeds of up to 8Mbps. You’ll also be required to pay an extra £10 a month on top of the prices above.
This move brings T-Mobile customers closer to the Orange family fold. Since the launch of Everything Everywhere, we’ve seen Orange and T-Mobile customers able to make use of 2G and 3G signal on both networks. Now T-Mobile customers can enjoy the benefits of cheaper broadband in the home.
Sylvain Thevenot, Director of Marketing & Propositions for Broadband for Everything Everywhere said in a statement: “We’re committed to giving our customers the best bargains possible. With great discounts on Orange’s award-winning home broadband, we’re now making it cheaper for them to enjoy broadband speed on smartphones, tablet, and laptops at home as well.”
