Wow! My Orange mobile phone is now EE


[link to this post]
 
My mobile phone where it had Orange on the screen is now EE, so I've lost my Orange mobile phone it's now EE. wink

I wonder, does this mean tomorrow Orange home broadband will be EE and they will offer Fibre home broadband with 50 or 100 Mbps speed. smile

My Broadband Speed Test
Orange WBC 20 Mbps. Sync 11864 kbps Downstream, 1189 kbps Upstream.

Yeah, I think rebranding the name EE is rubbish compared to orange. I thought Orange had the best brand name of all the UK networks and a clever logo that stood out, clean attractive and simple. What ever happened to the slogan...
ďThe Futureís bright, the Futureís OrangeĒ grin

I didnít realise Orange has 226 million customers as of December 2011.

I nearly joined Orange when they launched Wildfire but that was short lived.

Had Orange PCS become publicly traded on the LSE the old Orange might still have been around.

It all went pear shaped when Hans Snook left I think.

Donít get me wrong Iím an Orange troll! I have unlimited broadband, landline phone, landline rental and mobile phone with Orange all for £25.50 per month and have no problems with the services or price. wink

I was going for the HTC Wirefire S mobile phone, but last January Apple was off loading their iPhone 3GS mobile phones and I got one from T-Mobile £15.50 per month. Itís rubbish as a phone, but I can get no end of apps for it, I have upgraded to the latest iOS 6 firmware and use it as a hand held computer and play solitaire. Itís my pocket iPad and I sometimes use it as a phone. smile

In reply to a post by techguy:

They did float on the LSE when they had less than 1m customers. The company was valued at about £2bn, an absolute steal in a market with huge growth potential and almost total barriers to new entrants.

I remember buying the shares for less than £2 each in 1996 and selling them for nearly £20 each in 1999 when they got bought out by Mannesmann. Almost immediately, Vodafone bought Mannesmann and was later forced to sell Orange.

Oh for another tech bubble!
