Orange rings in spring Roaming
At just CHF 20.– for 200 MB of data roaming, Orange is introducing new prices for data roaming in Europe that are significantly lower than the EU-regulated level. The 200 MB Travel Data option will be available from 11 March 2014. Customers receive a warning text message when 90% and 100% of the data volume included has been used up. Once the data volume included has been completely used up, the data roaming option is disabled. The 200 MB Travel Data option can be renewed in a single click on the customer's smartphone. This option is ideal for customers travelling in Europe who mainly want to access the internet on their mobile. If a data volume of 200 MB is not enough to cover the customer's Internet needs when abroad, the option can be renewed any number of times in order to receive a further CHF 20.– of credit for 200 MB of data roaming in Europe each time. With its new Travel Data option, Orange is giving us a first taste of its plans to reduce roaming prices even further this spring. More attractive offers will follow in the coming weeks.
