UK NETWORK Orange has announced the launch of U24 today, a tariff designed specifically for cash-strapped young people.
The new tariff will see Orange customers under the age of 24 receive extra calls, texts and data on top of their existing mobile plan. Offered by the network at no extra charge, customers will bag an additional 1GB of monthly data and free calls and texts to other Orange and T-Mobile users.
To take advantage of the generous tariff, customers need to 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.
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 has also launched a U24 app for IOS, Android and Blackberry handsets, leaving Windows Phone users in the dark once again. The app will scan its users' address books to highlight those on Orange and T-Mobile, so you can see who you're about to text for free.
Orange's U24 tariff is available to customers from today. µ
