Orange has revealed that the number of people subscribing to its fixed line broadband service dropped across the third quarter of this year.
The broadband provider revealed that its fixed line customers fell by 12.2 per cent to around 899,000, in comparison to the previous 12 months.
However, the company fared better in terms of mobile broadband, with the number of people connecting to the internet through that network rising by 65 per cent year-on-year to around 4.7 million customers.
In addition, the firm will be hoping that its recent announcement about the future of its mobile broadband services could boost its customer base further.
The broadband provider has revealed that speeds of up to 20Mb are now being offered to all customers who are part of Orange's home broadband network.
Four new price plans have been launched to support the service, while a marketing campaign has also been launched to promote the deals in the run-up to Christmas.
