    I'm getting a Coldfusion error message now. Looks like someone at Wanadoo/Orange is tinkering with something :p

    But the fact remains; Wanadoo = Orange :)

    Hmmm. Thats bad. I like Orange, I hate Freeserve.

    Although, if Orange improve them onehundredfold they might be OK :)

    orange/wanadoo have been owned by the same comapny (france telecom or something) since freeserve changed to wanadoo. Theyve now rebranded wanadoo as orange.

    on the orange homepage there's a link to free broadband offer but the link's not working yet. Looks like they'll be doing a talk talk type offer.

    Wannadoo have been rebranded as Orange, and you should be able to find all the same information now on www.orange.co.uk as you could on wannadoo.

    Wannadoo has been owned by france telecom for a while, just as Orange has, all that's happened is brand consolidation.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/5032846.stm has the press release from yesterday :)
