The new Orange Home Max package includes mobile communication, a landline connection offering free weekend and evening calls, as well as an Orange Livebox that gives you broadband coverage through a wireless modem.
With its 'triple play' deal of mobile, landline and broadband, Orange has followed the likes of BT and Virgin Media by offering customers the opportunity to get all of their communications from one company with one bill and one number for all customer service support. Virgin Media also offers TV as part of its own quad play deal.
A second new package, Orange Home Starter is also available that will allow customers to move over to Orange Broadband whilst keeping their existing fixed line supplier. Customers of the Home Max package will be able to make free international calls with an inclusive VoIP line and will also benefit from the launch of Orange's digital TV service later this year.
