    Default Orange Broadband

    Anyone using Orange Broadband. Contemplating getting a new phone and can get Broadband for £5, saving me £11/month. (That's half my line rental on the mobile).

    Very happy with my current provider and don't want to go with Orange f they're useless. Thoughts and experiences please.

    Cheers Tony,

    The max speed where I live is less than 1mb , so speed shouldn't be a problem.

    Been offered a £35 tariff (600mins and unlimited texts) with a Samsung G600 for £21.50/month.

    I use Orange Broadband and have had a few speed issues. Sometimes get 6mb and other times it can be down to 700k. Also had the connection dropping a few times in last couple of weeks. You may want to have a look on orangeproblems.co.uk to see what a lot of people think of Orange.

    We've had Orange since it was Freeview. Our is "Free" with the phone.

    Only issue has been that their support is next to useless if anything goes wrong. I've had to sortthe issues myself. There are a lot of unhappy customers on the Orange problem pages though.

    Also with the mobile you get to add a "magic number" every six months. Orange made a big thing of this but adding the number means the contract (in our case 18 months) starts all over again. Might be different now but worth a check.
