Orange subscribers who have taken up the mobile phone company's offer of free broadband haven't had a terribly good experience with it, by all accounts. They've even had to put up with an outage lasting weeks but, as it turns out, it seems the poor sods aren't even covered by the broadband industry code of practice!
According to the Register, the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) does not include Orange in its rules because, being tacked on as a freebie, Orange Broadband is apparently not eligible. Yet Orange is still a member of ISPA.
Confused? You should be. I certainly am.
