Virgin to offer customers Orange network access for calls, texts and internet

Virgin Media has revealed that plans to broaden its service by allowing its customers to make use of the Orange network for calls, texting and mobile internet.

Speaking to a fellow tech blog, a representative for the digital media and tele-communications company stated that Virgin Media does not own its network outright, but at present ‘piggybacks’ on T-Mobile. With the merger of T-Mobile and Orange which saw both networks combine to form Everything Everywhere back in May 2010, the potential has finally been realised and this has opened a new avenue to explore within the partnership and offer customers a greater range of services.

The choice of services will be offered towards the end of 2011 with both new and existing customers benefitting from the merge. Existing customers will begin to receive updates on this new offering via text soon.

Everything Everywhere is the largest mobile network operator in the UK and currently boasts around 28 million users spread across its partner networks T-Mobile and Orange.
