O/T - Orange Broadband

Anyone been brave enough to risk it yet? Are there any data caps - I couldn't see any in the TandC.

I thought this may help negate the cost of paying for an O contract I don't use when I migrate to TMob before the end of one of my contracts.

It depends on which package you are on.

I haven't got it but it looks good - and quite cheap.

All packages are up to 8Mbps and it doesn't cost ?4 a MB - thats on a mobile phone WAP!

Thats ttrue there is the 2GB cap, but they say that they will fire warning shots rather than limit you or cut you off!

I have actually signed up for the unlimited package without caps, its a tenner a month so its not too bad, and i get another modem so i can get rid of mine on ebay :)

Rest assured I got the joke, and even chuckled a little to myself :)

Yeah, as I've always been aware (the regional 'Elite Phone Trainer' informed me) that it is a 'Soft' cap - so they're not going to send heavies round to cut your phoneline in half, but rather, break the cap once: they'll maybe email you. Break it 10 months in a row: they may send you a menacing letter.. either way its nothing to lose sleep over!

2Gb eh? Isn't that what Tmob offer via the pro package? Seems unbelievably tight for broadband. Might as well 4Mb.

yes it will be 2GB - no surprise there as they are with "wanadoo".

connection speeds will also probably be lower too.

2GB these days per month is nothing

tbh - I would invest in something that is and will be more stable without restrictions (i.e cable ISP internet such as blueyonder) - well worth the money and you dont get screwed over

I assumed it would be shash, but I thought it might help pay the redundant ?20 a month I will soon be paying Orange after TMob release the Hermes.

2gb IMHO is ridiculous.

How would you go about downloading, for example, the latest Public Beta of Windows Vista?

Looking at the speed I did it on ntl (10mb), I'd imagine I'd reach 2gb in less than an hour on wann... sorry.. Orange :)

The idea of 'free' BB with a mobile tarrif over ?30 is appealing, but a 2Gb cap? Pah, even Tiscali got rid of their caps, and they're tight!!

A couple of DivX downloads per month and yer b*ggered :)

Just spoke to O CS.

The free service does have a 2gb usage cap. It is on a 'fair usage' policy. If you go over on the odd ocassion they reckon it won't matter. If you do it continuosly they might suggest you upgrade to the unlimited max package.

With the free service you also get free landline eve and weekend calls.

The max package is ?10 a month, unlimited broadband usage and free land line calls at all times.

They said that most people are receiving speeds of 2meg. They checked my number and I would prob get speeds of 2meg too. Not surprised you don't get 8 meg, looks good in the ad though.

You pays your money and you make your choice - 2Gb is not a lot - but it's free, I was worried because my ISP has a 20Gb limit, I certainly use more than 2Gb per month.

?10 for unlimited is better - but you have to use Orange for your mobile - and who wants to do that? :)

Now that does beat my current ?14.99 1Mb line with unlimited cap from Tiscali, which doesn't include phone calls.

*pick self up off floor* Orange being competetive???

But can I cope with changing email addresses again... Ooo the stress... :)

I thought so too, when I went into the Orange shop in Croydon Collenades to upgrade my phone - grabbed the free BB offer with both hands, an anchor, and bluetack to boot :D OK, so there's a 2 gig cap? so what - it'll be worth it for the speedier access (I'm currently on a 56k steam-powered dialup :P) - and if they wanna really make me happy, they'll loose the cap too - limiting the free access speed to 1 or 2 megs, unlimited, will REALLY be competetive :)
