Orange rejigs its SME tariffs

The mobile operator has refreshed its Solo, Venture and Momentum tariffs, offering bonuses for customers taking contracts of over 18 months' duration

Orange has updated its small-business-oriented mobile tariffs.

The operator launched the Solo, Venture and Momentum tariffs in May last year. Solo is targeted at the self-employed, Venture is for businesses with between one and 10 employees and Momentum is aimed at larger businesses.

In the tariff refresh, announced on Thursday, Solo customers will get a choice of either unlimited calls to UK landlines or unlimited texts. They will also get calls to 28 countries as part of their inclusive minutes, if they are on the £40 or £45 per month tariffs. Taking a contract of longer than 18 months will earn the customer extra minutes.

Venture customers get the same deal, except they can get both unlimited UK landline calls and unlimited texts if they are on 24- or 36-month contracts. Momentum customers get unlimited Orange-to-Orange calls on contracts over 18 months, along with 20 percent more inclusive minutes. A 36-month contract will earn Momentum customers a 20 percent line rental discount.
