Orange Group-owned Orange Armenia has launched a new pre-paid service, available to both new and existing customers, and comprising three distinct PAYG bundles to suit their specific needs. The cellco’s ‘Orange 500’ bundle includes 500 on-net voice call minutes and 50MB of mobile internet downloads, while ‘Orange 1000’ includes 1,000 on-net minutes and 50MB of high speed internet access and ten minutes of international voice calls to a ‘preferred’ country. Meanwhile, customers who sign up for ‘Orange 1500’ receive 1,000 on-net minutes and 500MB of mobile internet data, after which they can continue using the web, albeit with the speed capped at 256kbps. All three bundles are valid for 30 days and are reactivated automatically.
According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, Orange Armenia launched on 5 November 2009, since when it has invested more than EUR277 million (USD293 million) in its operations, including EUR51 million for its licence, and today provides a full range of voice and data services to more than 97% of the Armenian population.
