The enhance network in these areas should mean that 3G customers are able to make use of a 99 percent call set-up success rate on mobile phones. It is hoped that a faster variant of its 3G/HSDPA service that will support mobile broadband will also be launched in the near future.

Speaking about the new improvement scheme, Peter Marsden, vice president of IT & Networks at Orange, commented: "A robust and reliable network is at the heart of everything we do at Orange and we are dedicated to ensuring our customers in each and every region of the UK feel the benefit of this." He added: "We are investing heavily to improve our network and this investment is one step closer to our goal of becoming the best UK network for coverage and reliability by 2009."

Orange will be installing over 450 new 2G and 3G sites over the next twelve months to ensure customers can make calls, send texts and access mobile broadband services with a better success rate.
