Our Orange Product Recommendations
Orange only does mobile broadband contracts, it does not have a Pay As You Go service. We like the one month rolling mobile broadband contracts for the flexibility they provide.
Orange Mobile Broadband Returns Policy
Orange has a two week money back guarantee. Orange will cancel the contract and refund any upfront device costs if the dongle is returned within two weeks.

Value for Money
The pricing for Orange Mobile Broadband is similar to that of other major providers, so value for money is good for Orange mobile broadband contracts. However, the lack of an Orange Pay As You Go mobile broadband option means it can't offer the best in value for money if you are going to be a light internet user.
VOIP / Skype Policy
It says in the Orange Mobile Broadband FAQ that you can make video calls over the internet using applications such as Windows Live Messenger.
