After Launching iPhone 3Gs, Finally Orange Launches 3.5G (HSDPA) in Jordan

4 Mar, 2010

It took about one month since our last speculation about Orange Jordan launch date of the first 3G network in Jordan. But, today Orange 3.5G up and running and covering initially west Amman, Irbid and Zarqa. Mobile 3Gs comes inline with Orange late launch of iPhone 3Gs around 2 weeks ago.

To me and people who live in Jordan, even though the whole 3G rollup is late, this news is very exciting as the network speed is up to 7.2 Mbps and you can use it on your laptop or Mobile.
Orange Mobile 3G+ data plan starts with 19.90 Jordanian Dinners (JDs), with unlimited Internet and voice minutes to Orange mobile and fixed number. however Orange notes in its website”when exceeding the fair usage policy of 2GB,data consumption will be charged per MB at 4p/MB (local use only) .”The other 2 options for monlhty offers are:
* Mobile 3G+ X Large:
mobile data (internet) unlimited 1 voice minutes to all Orange mobile and Orange fixed numbers 1500 voice minutes to all other local networks 300 SMS unlimited 2 monthly fee 39.90
*Mobile 3G+ Unlimited:
mobile data (internet) unlimited 1 voice minutes to all Orange mobile and Orange fixed numbers unlimited 3 voice minutes to all other local networks unlimited 4 SMS unlimited 2 monthly fee 79.90.

As for pay as you go mobile offer 1GB  costs around 14.99 Jds.

Even though Orange’s mobile offer seems ok, its internet offer is not  feasible enough for me to switch my slow “Orange” ADSL to Orange 3g+ internet plan for laptops as its starts with 9.9 JDs for 1GB monthly data bundle, 1p/MB excess of bundle rate with a USB dongle price at 45 Jds.

Orange will have a monopoly for one year in Jordan over 3G, in which after that other operators can enter the market.

    i do not have an iPhone and orange was lazy in its own marketing in adding an iPhone with 3Gs picture to its orange.jo website. so blame the marketing department at orange. 😀

    Organized theft: Orange charged me 100 JD for what they call “Exceeding Limit” on using internet on iPhone. The first time I ever heard about this terminology. And it is the first time; I have ever seen a company fining a customer 100 JD (US$ 140+). Then they charge me for extra usage (Double dip). When I complained, no one at any of their stores could help. Staff just write emails and no one in HQ responds to those emails. Hello: What do you think yourself Orange?
