A new platform developed by Orange will allow users to switch easily between the provider's 3G mobile broadband network and their home Wi-Fi network.

Broadband subscribers will soon be able to change from surfing the web via mobile broadband to a Wi-Fi connection without interrupting their session, reports Total Telecom.

Orange's Unik offering currently functions on 2G voice services, but now there is scope for an expansion into 3G.

Gareth Abel, director of marketing operations at Orange's devices division, told Total Telecom: "We've extended the technology to include 3G networks.

"The hand-off between the Wi-Fi network and the 3G cellular network needs to be as reliable as it is in the 2G world, and it has been technically challenging to get this to work."

The Orange brand is owned by France Telecom, one of the world's leading telecommunications operators.
