Letís be as simple as we can be, when youíre an Orange Home broadband customer, we do not limit the amount of broadband you use. Put another way, we do not have a Fair Use Policy on broadband.


Traffic management

So we can continue to provide you with an excellent broadband experience at all times of the day, we do manage our internet traffic according to certain rules at busy times.

Our aim is to never let you down when you're using your broadband for important things and the quality of the connection needs to be top-notch, for example when you're making a call on your second line (if you have one with Orange), if you're playing online and are just about to get to that next level, or if youíre watching the latest episode of your favourite program on the iPlayer.

These important services are prioritised over others that are less time-sensitive (like file sharing) at busy times when a lot of people are connected and our network gets very busy. The busy times are typically between 6pm to 11:30pm on weekdays and 5pm to 11:30pm on weekends.

Our priority is to make sure that everyone has a stable access to the internet at all time; this prioritisation improves the quality and speed of broadband for more than 95% of our customers.
