Orange sees further fall in home broadband customers
Everything Everywhere, the parent company of Orange and T-Mobile, has reported further losses to its fixed broadband customer base.

The group saw its broadband subscriber numbers continue to fall in the three months to December 31st 2010, although the decline was slower than in previous quarters.

But the telecoms organisation has forecast a more positive outlook in the near future. A "renewed sales and marketing focus" should see broadband return to growth from midway through the year, it predicted.

During the quarter, Everything Everywhere also created the first "super network" offering 2G national roaming across both the Orange and T-Mobile infrastructure.

By this spring, the two carriers' mobile broadband customers will be able to take advantage of increased 3G coverage as a result of the initiative.

The company announced the "big switch-on" of its network-sharing agreement last October, with 1.35 million subscribers signing up to take advantage of the facility by the end of that month.

Hardly a surprise, considering Orange's well deserved reputation for a dire product and even worse customer service.

Just so you know, Everything Everywhere is NOT the parent company of Orange and T-Mobile! Everything Everywhere is the UK joint venture of Orange and T-Mobile!!
