LONDON -- Orange today announced the introduction of a fixed line service for small and medium-sized enterprises, the first to be offered in the UK by a mobile operator.

Orange Landline for Business will provide fixed services to existing and new Orange mobile business customers with a single point of customer service and call charges up to 20% less than BT.

Orange Landline will allow businesses to replace both their current landline rental and call services with a single Orange package, offering a range of voice bundles to cater to specific mobile, national and international needs. A single bill will be available for calls and line rental.

"Orange Landline for Business is the next step in Orange becoming the total communications provider. We are simplifying communications SMEs" said Alastair MacLeod, Vice President Business Solutions, Orange UK. "Bringing together mobile and fixed services reduces total spending and simplifies customers' supply chains and service support."

Orange is providing the service following Ofcom's Wholesale Line Rental programme, under which BT is obliged to allow operators to offer both line rental and calls to customers over its network.
