Orange today launches its new mobile broadband and laptop offer targeted specifically at the business market. Small and medium business customers can now sign up to a new Orange Business Everywhere mobile broadband package and come away with a laptop.
The three new Business Everywhere with Laptop bundles each include an unlimited data allowance (although a 5GB Fair Use Policy Applies) and a whopping 500 WiFi minutes per month, which can be used at over 10,000 UK hotspots (through a partnership with The Cloud and BT Openzone)
On top of this, customers will receive a business-spec HP laptop with Microsoft Windows Vista Business. Depending on the package chosen, the laptop will come either embedded with an Orange SIM or with an Option ICON 225 USB dongle, meaning customers can get online instantly without the need for a fixed line internet connection.
The new packages range from GBP35 - GBP45 per month for a 24 month contract, with the price varying according to the choice of laptop.
Paul Tollet, Vice President Business, Orange UK said: "In the current economic climate, businesses are demanding the capability to work flexibly at a reasonable price. Our Business Everywhere with Laptop gives customers all the tools they need to do their jobs in the way that they want
- a business grade HP laptop, unlimited UK data access and inclusive WiFi minutes. Businesses can literally be up and running the moment they open the box. This is another fantastic example of Orange listening to its customers and providing solutions to meet their needs."
Following the announcement of its consumer offer in July, Orange is working with HP, one of the world's leading laptop manufacturers, for its first connected business laptop offering.
Paul Tollet continued, "Laptops are a natural extension to our existing product portfolio. We now offer our customers a totally flexible approach to business. Whether they want to manage their mobile working with a simple, affordable SIM only tariff, want email on their phone, or need total business laptop functionality, Orange can deliver it. Our Business Everywhere with Laptop offer is part of our commitment to evolving the communications market by offering new ways for customers to connect with the people and things that matter most to them."
Business Everywhere with Laptop is available direct from Orange through the Online Shop, telesales and the business sales team with the cheapest model - an AMD sempron based HP6735s laptop - starting at £35 per month over a period of 2 years.
