Orange set to launch ‘Signal Boost’


Next Wednesday (June 15th)  sees the launch of the Orange signal boost. Subscribers to the new service will be able to get full signal on their Orange mobile using their existing W-Fi connection.

Whether there are costs involved I don’t know at this stage but it will be a god send to many users and will more than likely drum up some new business for Orange where customers have not previously had an Orange signal at home.

This concept is nothing new as many users of certain handsets can already take advantage of a similar technology in the form of UMA. All BlackBerry devices are UMA supported and when the Orange signal is weak the phone will automatically use a Wi-Fi connection to route all calls and data.

This new service sounds pretty neat if you ask me. We have been invited to the lauch event so we will report back with full details next Wednesday/Thursday.
