Orange UK has launched a new mobile internet browsing bundle that offers customers travelling across the European Union (EU) 30 MB of data traffic for GBP3 per day. The new daily mobile internet bundle is aimed at Pay Monthly, dongle and Small Business customers. Orange also offers revamped monthly and 30-day EU mobile data roaming bundles for Pay Monthly customers, who can opt for GBP15 per 30 MB, GBP50 per 150 MB or GBP150 per 500 MB monthly packages while travelling in the EU.
Orange today announces the launch of its new EU mobile internet browsing daily bundle, which offers all Pay Monthly, dongle and Small Business customers 30MB for just £3 a day. This new offer is being made available in time for the summer holiday season to give Orange customers greater transparency and even better value when browsing abroad.
If a customer doesn’t use any data on a particular day, they won’t pay, so this bundle is ideal for purchasing before going on holiday and using as and when it is needed. The bundle starts at midnight local time and is reset so the customer has another 30MB to use for the next 24 hour period.*
This launch follows the recent introduction of the refreshed monthly and 30 day EU mobile internet browsing bundles for consumers. Pay Monthly customers now have the option of £15/30MB, £50/150MB or £150/500MB monthly bundles for EU visits. For one off trips, these can be purchased as 30 day bundles. Alongside the new daily offering, these bundles will help customers control spending and provide peace of mind when browsing the internet or accessing emails on their phones while travelling in European countries.
Liz Wynn, Director of In Life, Orange UK, said:“Travelling abroad is an exciting prospect for everyone and it is now easier than ever to stay connected to friends and family. Whether our customers want to upload their latest holiday snaps on Facebook or simply send an email sharing tales and adventures, many people consider internet access an integral part of any trip. For this very reason we are introducing the new daily roaming bundle and have already revised existing monthly and 30 day roaming bundles for the EU to help our Pay Monthly customers get the most out of their mobile internet while in Europe.”
To buy an EU mobile internet bundle, Pay Monthly customers simply call customer services by dialling 150 at home or abroad.
* If a customer uses more than 30MB in a day then standard charges will apply at £3.07 per MB. 30MB covers 99.5% of all customer's daily needs.
