Orange reveals iPhone business plans

Business deals, iPhone tethering, 750MB limit stays

After a rocky start to its new iPhone service Orange has announced details of its business plans for Apple's iPhone.

Orange, which claims that it is "the UK‘s biggest 3G network, covering more people than any other," offers business iPhone plans for one person with inclusive minutes and texts starting from £30 a month.

It also offers "business iPhone plans for sharers," which adds "unlimited mobile internet" to the plan for £8 per person per month.

The "Business iPhone plan for one" keeps to Orange's controversial 750MB limit for UK mobile internet and Wi-Fi downloads in what it states is an "unlimited" plan.

Orange has faced a barrage of criticism - much of it on Twitter - for limiting its "unlimited" data downloads to 750MB for consumer iPhone customers.

There is scant information on the thorny issue of data downloads limits for the sharer plans. In the business plan pages there is mention of "UK GPRS at £2.55 per MB", which doesn't seem relevant to iPhone users.

Orange iPhone tethering bundles - where users can connect their iPhone to a laptop for mobile PC internet use - start at £4.25/month for 500MB of data and rise to £21.28 for 10GB over 30 days, and then 4.26p per MB out of bundle.

Orange has also been blasted for effectively banning its iPhone customers from a host of internet services - such as Spotify and even Facebook messaging - when it starts selling the iPhone from November 10, according to the BBC.
