Orange Remove Animal Tariffs

The Works to replace Orange animal tariffs

Orange Remove Sim Only Animal Tariffs

Back in April 2013, Orange removed their pay monthly SIM only animal tariffs and replaced them with a new set of plans offering generous minute and text allowances, plus an ample helping of mobile data. The whole process of choosing a SIM only deal was streamlined, so that instead of having four separate animal tariff structures, there's now just one to select from. We've broken down the new tariffs over on our Sim Only Deals page to try and make it as easy as possible for you to find your ideal plan. Alternatively, check out the table below to see the latest pricing.

In order to make everything as clear as possible we've got this handy chart to help make the changes easy to understand. The new tariffs are meant to make things a lot simpler for you when choosing SIM plans.
