I wonder what constitutes fair usage for the 8Mb service, anyone know?

And tenex I know someone who has downloaded silly amounts and nothing happened on Orange Broadband Unlimited but they avoid the peak time of around 4pm-1am when doing so
It seems they have gotten more lax from their Freeserve and Wannado days, but look at Orange T&C's.

i have an orange contract mobile but they cant offer me broadband :( do the simple landline number check on their site

loupomm what does [url]www.samknows.com[/url] say about your line?
Normally the free broadband offer is there if they have LLU at your exchange or not, by going via BT Wholesale.

Are you on a £30/m+ 18month contract?

my contract is an 18mnth £40, im with ntl at mo but my bills are horrendous and ntl dont seem to want to offer me any deals despite taking advice from a thread here to call them :( they clearly dont like me lol
#6
Double check with [url]www.samknows.com[/url] > availability and [url]www.bt.com/broadband[/url]

If both say you can get broadband, call Orange and give them your number, they'll get the same results as those two sites and should be able to provide it to you.
If they still stall ask them to refer to a technican or supervisor, if still stalling talk them through the BT site proving you can get it.

One rather large important factor though, the number MUST be a BT provided number...

information for Apple Mac users
We don’t currently offer any support for Apple Mac but you can get Orange Broadband. We’re working towards fully supporting Apple Mac in the near future.

Although we don’t provide technical support, many of our products do work if manually configured. The wireless adaptor we sell doesn’t work with Apple Mac.

Oh well... :viking:

I have blueyonder so I'd have to pick up a BT line too.

I have a housemate with a Mac G4 thing (with in built wireless) working just fine with the Livebox, copied the WPA key from my usb memory stick straight into the wireless box via the wireless icon on the top left, works fine (i'm no mac expert btw)

as i said in the other post and as said above hastle them into looking into it if you can get broadband. This is what I have done, and I have to phone back in 5 days to find out the outcome. I will not let this drop....oh and do contact ofcom too if you are limited on choise because of BT

I've been on this deal since July and have not had any problems on both PC and Mac

Thanks for that. Do these units also have a wired port available? Can't see any point in sticking with 56Mbit for p2p stuff.

My live box is connected to my 16port 100mbit switch from it fine, it seems to have 2 eth ports on the device itself

Thanks, now to telephone Telewest and see if they want to retain me...

I think you need a BT line, if you current telco is NTL then you're snookered.
#16
orange rang me the other day and offered a upgrade to unlimited for £5 a month. i did not take it up as i have it at work and only browse the net there (and pay their wages :thinking: )
#17
the fair usage policy is 40gig per month.

and if your currently on a 12 month contract and get the free or unlimited BB then orange will just renew your 12 month contract and not extend it to 18 months :)
#18
I've not seen mention of 40gb on the Orange site...

[SIZE=2]I enquired with their call centre staff before signing up for the unlimited option, some quote 30GB and some 40GB as a fair use limit, the fact that they themselves don't seem to know is BS.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]I would just stick to their off peak heavy usage recommendations - since this is documented on their website.[/SIZE]
#20
Orange usage limits seem to vary and they are lax.

Not to mention they seem to have zero utility on their member site for people to look at their usage.

Thing is I think Orange can afford to do this as majority of customers will be on their LLU network where they arn't crippled by BT charges on their network which other (BT only dependant) ISPs suffer from.

Hi just reading through the post and funny enough was going to sign up for a new contract with orange - I am paying 22.99 but can swap to 19.99 with a 8mg uplift in speed (subject to availablity) and a new 12 month contract. I might do the phone as well later but my wife is on PAYG and never goes over a tenner!

Can someone help me with a technical question as I am not that up to speed with the tech side of my PC.

I have wireless at the moment with a belkin wireless router - my PC connects to the wireless router through an ethernet cable and my lap top connects wirelessly as does my PSP.

The tech jargon on their site suggests that all connections have to be wireless for the Orange LIVEBOX and that you need to buy a wireless bit of equipment for your PC for it to work - I dont really want to do this - can the PC be connected via an ethernet cable as I do at the moment?

Thanks for your help and voted hot with rep left!

what is a Livebox?
Article ID: kb224
Livebox is the name of the connection device that you receive when registering to our Wireless & Talk service.

Before installing a Livebox, broadband has to be available on your telephone line. If this is not the case, you'll have to wait until your service has been activated. Activation will normally take up to 10 days from registration and you will receive email notification that your account is live.

wirelessly via a 802.11g or 802.11b connection protocol
using an Ethernet cable connected to your Livebox
This means with your Wireless & Talk pack, you can connect:


It seems I might have found the answer!!

Their help section is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack and also their call centre in india is not the best.

@Stan

I've got a Livebox with my unlimited package but have not even opened the box yet. This was a combination of me not having the time to play about with it and it was delivered 10 days after the service went live on my line so I had to carry on using my Netgear kit initially any how.

Can anyone confirn that the Livebox has built in firewall and supports VPN pass through?

Thanks for the pointer sheps :)

Thanks for all the extra info too guys ;-)

pita^norf it has limited firewall options and i'm not sure about VPN

Stan if you can be disciplined with your cashbacks you should try what I did:

Sorry SB what do you mean by cashbacks the link you posted takes me to the first page of this post

That link should take u to my post, wasn't sure if you had read it :)

There have been several 18month contract = free bb posts, just reiterating what has worked for me and many others on here and MSE.

its not on the orange site, its on the orange internal knowledgebase, used for answers to customers question when they call...
#29
I mentioned that because, I know at least 2 people that break that month by month and nothing happened, but both mentioned avoiding the 6pm-11pm peak period
Clearer guidelines from Orange would be nice but it makes sense they want people to be light users in the evening and might ignore traffic during quieter times.
#30
do you have to take the contract with orange or can it be with a company so you get cash back but you are still on orange?

cheers

I think that this post has legs!

When I asked in a shop a few weeks ago about if I took a contract with them would this have an impact if I then transfered my broadband and they told me it would not. Now appoligies if you are a phone sales person but some of them dont fill you with confidence!

I did however look in the window of my local J.A.G as I quite fancy one of the new Sony W850i - I did see them in a shop bundled free with some sony wireless headphones which would be great to use at the gym!!

So what would be the best deal you could get on a £30.00 pm contract would it be cash back or a gift? - free line rental will not be worth while as you would have to pay the £30 per month to Orange! - I have seen some free xBOX deals as wonder if there are any free Wii deals.

What do you reckon?

AFAIK you can get the free broadband / unlimited offer if you have a 18 month pay monthly plan that cost £30 or more with Orange - these can take the form of cash backdeals if you manage to find them.
#34
Im on basic Free 2GB cap limit and i must download at least 10GB every month for the last 8 months.
Nothing has ever been said
#35
So has anybody seen any really good current cash back offers or free gifts?

Some of the ones I have spotted give you the cash back at certain intervals of your contract - I would guess that these would be lost once you sign up for the broadband?

I dont think thats the case, but I am also trying to find out. I would like an orange pay monthly phone (cashback deal - not direct from orange). I am then going to get orange broadband unlimited for £5 p/m. As the cashback is through the company you sign up with (e2save etc), joining orange broadband shouldnt affect the cashback deal at all. Hope im right.

Well just to make sure I am ringing them right now, lol. Anyone know of any good 18month deals with cashback.

The reseller is just the agent for Orange so I would imagine its OK. You pay Orange after all.
