Orange launches new SME tariffs

Mobile operator has designed a range of price plans aimed at three types of small business

Orange has launched a range of new tariffs aimed at different segments of the small-business market.

According to the mobile operator, the tariffs are designed to suit various segments of the market that have different needs. Orange Solo is, as the name suggests, aimed at the self-employed, and offers minute-based plans starting at £30 per month for 400 minutes. Orange Venture is for businesses with between one and ten employees, and offers seven price points ranging from 275 minutes (£28) to 3,400 minutes (£165) per month. Orange Momentum is aimed at even larger businesses, with prices starting at £155 for 2,500 minutes per month.

Martin Lyne, Orange UK's director of small business, said on Thursday that the tariffs were "designed to span the work-life blur faced by many small-business owners". The operator is also offering a small-business advisory service in 10 of its flagship stores around the UK, in a scheme that has been operational for just under a month.
