Orange’s Livebox Play will be on sale from February 7th. The new device, which comes in the shape of an Internet box and a set-top box has received over 100,000 pre-orders in just over two weeks on the Orange website.
“The new Livebox Play is packed full of cutting-edge technologies” declared Delphine Ernotte Cunci, Executive Director of Orange France. “In combination with the Livebox Play packages, customers will be able to use all their screens to enjoy a vast range of uses, including browsing the Internet, playing games and social networking.”
The Livebox Play, with OLED screen displays, lets customers share everything quicker, with fibre optic download speeds of up to 200 Mb/s, 10 times faster than ADSL, and up to 50 Mb/s for uploads. For example, a 700 Mb film can be legally downloaded in 28 seconds instead of in 4 mins 40 by ADSL. With dual Wi-Fi, customers can connect the whole house in high definition to watch films in HD quality on multiple screens and enjoy even better coverage. This latest generation 2.4 and 5 Ghz dual band Wi-Fi covers the entire range of connection requirements for all devices (computers, smartphones, tablets) for unlimited use throughout the house.
