Orange 4G arrived in Lyon, Lille and Nantes on November 21. After Marseille, which has had coverage since June 2012, the 4G network deployment continued with a total of four cities covered by 4G.
From April 4, Orange France will now open its 4G network in ten new cities and surrounding areas (Bordeaux, La Rochelle, Chartres, Orléans, Dunkerque, Nancy, Metz, Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble and Annecy). In addition, Orange is now extending its network from 4 April to the city’s 1st, 2nd, 8th and 9th districts, following the launch of 4G in the Paris Opéra area on January 28.
From June 2013, Orange France will launch 4G in 21 additional “agglomerations”, including Montpellier, Rennes, Pau, Poitiers and Mulhouse; Toulouse will follow by the summer.
To make the most of 4G, Orange France is launching a new range of offers for the general public, and nine offers for businesses and professionals.
4G/H+(4) access is included in all Origami Jet offers with no additional fees. It is also included with the new Origami Play offer for a supplement of 10 euro a month on top of the 3G+ offer.
On top of that, all customers subscribing to these new packages before 31 December 2013 will enjoy a welcome offer and pay 1 euro per month instead of 10 euros until the end of the year. This means they will be able to enjoy Origami Play 4G/H+ from 30.90 euro/month(2 and 5).
All Orange 4G/H+ offers include the multi-SIM option(7) that allows customers to use their mobile broadband subscription for both their smartphone and tablet, Orange Cloud(8) that allows customers to store photos, videos and documents online, and to enjoy 100Mb of secure storage space, Orange TV in high definition with 70 channels, exclusive access to all Ligue 1 football matches (9) free of charge for all 4G subscribers until 31 May 2014 and Orange Deezer premium+(10).
