Orange has refreshed its home broadband packages, allowing consumers to subscribe for a shorter period of time.
UK households are now able to sign up for Orange Broadband & Off Peak Calls and Orange Broadband & Anytime Calls on a 12-month contract.
Previously, subscribers to the fixed line broadband packages were required to register with Orange for 18 months, but the change gives consumers greater flexibility.
According to ISPreview.co.uk, the broadband provider is also now including unlimited public wireless broadband access for broadband deal subscribers.
Customers can take advantage of more than 200,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the UK to access the internet on their laptops and tablets.
Orange Broadband & Off Peak Calls offers subscribers up to 20Mb downloads, enabling them to take advantage of a full range of online services.
The broadband package comes with unlimited downloads, meaning web users can download and stream video without worrying about incurring additional charges.
Unlimited off-peak home phone calls are also included, meaning landline use is free during evenings and weekends.
Orange customers also receive a free 'N' class wireless broadband router, enabling them to use the internet wherever they are in the house.
The monthly price for Orange mobile customers in networked areas is £5, with other subscribers paying an extra £5 each month.
Both Orange and non-Orange mobile customers are also required to pay an £11.75 line rental fee per month.
Orange Broadband & Anytime Calls includes all the same deal features, including 20Mb downloads, an unlimited usage allowance and a free 'N' class wireless broadband router.
With this higher-tier broadband package, there are no restrictions on home phone use – meaning calls to UK landline numbers are included throughout the week.
Orange mobile subscribers in networked areas pay £10 per month for this broadband deal, while new customers pay £15 per month for web services and home phone calls.
