Orange strengthens mobile broadband coverage in UK

Orange has announced the completion of a network upgrade to expand its HSPA coverage in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Some 760 sites across the two regions have been upgraded resulting in a 20 per cent improvement in network performance for both voice and data.

"We are delighted to announce the new network has gone live in Northern Ireland", said Pete Marsden, vice president IT & Networks. "At Orange we are proud of our commitment to give all our customers access to robust and reliable networks. We are investing heavily in updating and improving our infrastructure to meet our goal of being the best UK network for coverage and reliability."

According to figures from the Mobile World database, Orange ended September with around 15.8 million subscribers, which represents a UK market share of just over 21%. Orange now offers over 94% population 3G coverage and over 70% 3G+ across the UK.
