Orange España (officially Orange Espagne SAU, using the French spelling) is one of the four major telecommunications companies in Spain, along with Movistar, Vodafone and Yoigo, and the second-largest by subscribers after Movistar. It is owned by Orange S.A. of France.
The Orange brand was introduced in Spain in October 2006 after the mobile network operator Amena, which was acquired by France Télécom in 2005, merged with Wanadoo, an internet service provider brand used by France Télécom in several countries, and both these brands were replaced by Orange. Besides the parent Orange brand, Orange España has several sub-brands for mobile virtual network operators: Amena (reintroduced in 2012 and phased out in 2021), Simyo (acquired from KPN in 2012) and Jazztel.
The Amena brand was reintroduced in 2012 as one of several sub-brands of Orange España. In 2021 the brand was once again eliminated in favor of Orange.
