Orange throws some eco punches

Individuals who would like their technology to be that little bit greener could be interested to hear about a new deal signed by Orange.

The mobile phone network has welcomed C Mobile - a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) focussed on the environment - on to its Orange Partner Platform.

People may decide to sell their old mobile phones in order to purchase C Mobile's prepay MVNO, which will be launched in the UK later this year.

Handset and SIM-only deals will be available and it is hoped the device will target the eco and ethical markets, something those interested in green technology issues could be encouraged to hear.

"It is great to see how many different companies are waking up to the potential of the MVNO market and with our Partner Platform it's so easy and quick to get going," said Stephen Harris, director of business development at Orange UK.

Orange also announced that the majority of respondents to a new survey cited communications technology, such as mobile phones, as helping to bring flexibility to their working day.
