Orange to give under-24s free stuff and sod the rest of you
Orange have launched a new tariff called U24 which is designed with hard-up young people in mind.
This new deal gives people under the age of 24 extra calls, texts and data on top of their existing mobile plan. And it's all being offered at no extra cost by the network. So, for free, you'll get an additional 1GB of monthly data and free calls and texts to other Orange and T-Mobile users.
All you'll need to do is top up at least £15 a month on pay as you go, or have signed up for a pay monthly plan costing £15 or above. Seems fair enough doesn't it? Unless you're broke and 25 years old. Or using a Windows Phone, as this is only available on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry devices (aka, the phones that people actually use).
Simeon Bird, director of Propositions at Orange UK said: "We're pleased to be able to reward our younger customers with such a great offer. Whether they're going away to university, or starting out in a new career, with U24 we're hoping to make life a little easier, providing them with an extra mobile data allowance and the potential to call and text over 27 million people as often as they like - all for no extra charge."
Orange's U24 is available from today.
