FMC from Orange

In a briefing, Orange told us that it had sold 100,000 Unik phones in France, as of the end of February. Unik customers' voice traffic at home has been multiplied by 3.

Unik is a fixed-mobile convergence (FMC) service for voice, based on dual-mode WiFi/cellular phones, which provide unlimited voice at home (or in small enterprises). Unik is available to customers subscribing to an Orange mobile postpaid contract and an Orange fixed broadband access. Unik comes as an option on top of the mobile plan, at €10 or €22 per month.
