- Orange plc was formed in 1995. France Telecom formed the present company in 2001 after acquiring Orange plc and merging its existing mobile operations into the company. The company was initially 100% owned by France Telecom (although there were and still remain minority investors in some of the national operating companies). In 2001 15% was sold in an initial public offering, but in 2003 the outstanding shares were bought back by France Telecom.
- Orange now operates in over 27 countries and offers mobile broadband alongside its telecommunication services.
