Orange to drop roaming charges from big plans across Europe

Friday 31 January 2014 | 10:13 CET | News

Orange has announced plans to remove roaming charges in its largest post-paid plans across its entire European footprint. The new plans, for customers travelling within Europe are launching across Orange’s key European markets, including France, Spain, Poland, Belgium, Romania, Slovakia and Luxembourg and will be implemented throughout 2014.

The initiative is coupled with the news that Orange will launch 4G roaming from February for customers in France travelling to the UK, Portugal and South Korea. Further to this, technical readiness to deliver 4G roaming has been achieved in a further five markets including the UK (EE), Spain, Romania, Portugal and Moldova. LTE roaming will be fully available across Orange’s European footprint by the end of 2014, including major destinations outside of Europe.

Orange is also making improvements to its existing Go Europe roaming tariffs for its remaining pay-monthly customers across Europe. The improved Go Europe offers will be tailored to individual market needs, with offers launched from February onwards.

Group chairman and CEO Stephane Richard commented, “The results of our first Go Europe offers indicate that we are striking a chord with our customers, and we hope that these new improvements will instil further confidence that using your mobile abroad won’t bite.”
