Orange was a mobile network operator in the United Kingdom and the original company to use the Orange brand. It was launched in 1994 by Hutchison Whampoa Limited (now  CK Hutchison Holdings), then acquired by France Télécom in 2000, which then extended the Orange brand to most of its operations before finally renaming itself to Orange S.A. in 2013.
Orange merged with
Deutsche Telekom’s subsidiary T-Mobile UK in 2010 to form Everything Everywhere, which then introduced the EE brand in 2012. The EE, T-Mobile and Orange brands were used concurrently for some time before the latter two were retired in 2015.
