Orange outsources UK network to Nokia Siemens

Orange has outsourced the running of its U.K. mobile networks to Nokia Siemens Networks, Total Telecom learnt yesterday.

Speaking at an investor day in Paris yesterday, Orange revealed that a contract with the vendor will enable it reduce the cost of running those networks by 20%.

In addition, the France Telecom-owned company outlined its plans to become Spain's leading alternative operator - including the possibility of sharing a next-generation access network rollout project - and said it had not ruled out the possibility of acquiring Spanish mobile operator Yoigo.
