Orange’s Merger Into EE

In February 2015, Orange was phased out and technically no longer exists in the United Kingdom, now operating under the banner of EE. Its website was redirected to EE and Orange locations around the country had also turned into the brand new mobile provider. Existing customers will now be using EE’s services but can still contact them through Number Talk’s Orange customer service number. Furthermore, new customers will not be able to sign up with Orange or use any of its tariffs or services. They will, instead, have to go through EE. This is because the company was merged into EE alongside T-Mobile to create a completely fresh new brand. The move began in 2009 and came into effect in 2010. Orange still exists as its own brand in other countries around the world. It’s only in the UK that it has dissolved into EE.

History of Orange

Orange is French Telecommunications Corporation with multinational links. It is a provider of mobile phone networks, landline connections, mobile internet and internet services around the world. The company also offers business services in the form of telecommunications for other multinational companies.

The Orange brand was formed in at the start of the 1990s after a re-brand from Hutchinson Telecom. It was acquired by France Telecom in 2000. In the UK, Everything Everywhere (or “EE”) took control of the Orange UK brand, along with T Mobile, in 2010 and began a joint venture.This merger of both companies resulted in the creation of the largest mobile phone network in the UK and they are now able to offer 4G connections around most of the country.

In 2010, Orange also acquired an 11% share in music streaming site Deezer. This allowed it to offer its pay monthly customers, as well as EE pay monthly customers, a premium subscription at no extra charge. Orange still runs its highly successful “Orange Wednesdays” cinema campaign, which allows customers to request a code that they then show at their chosen cinema and get two cinema tickets for the price of one. This offer can only be redeemed at participating cinemas and is also available to EE customers.
