Orange wins network contract with Scottish govt

The Scottish government has announced a deal with Orange to supply ten public sector bodies with voice, data and broadband services.

Officials at the telecommunications company believe the deal will help Scotland save £1.6 million over the course of the next four years. Whilst the organisations involved have not been announced Orange has said that the agreement could be extended to include public service firms.

Orange won the contract from previous providers Vodafone and the deal will allow workers to use T-Mobile networks and is expected to be operational by the middle of 2013.

Kate Jack, head of public sector and health at Orange, said: "By being able to utilise both the Orange and T-Mobile networks, we can promise all users that they will be able to access the biggest mobile network in the UK."

The UK's biggest mobile phone company revealed in 2010 that it had expanded to reach 30 million people with its Everything Everywhere firm.
