“In the first two years, we have seen significant increases in our key brand metrics amongst both customers who have participated and those that are aware of the activity. One of the key challenges we face in the UK mobile category is to ensure that we are able to differentiate ourselves from our competitors — the program allows us to do this and gives another reason for customers to ‘love’ the Orange brand” — Chief Marketing Officer, Orange UK
