As one of the largest telecommunications service providers in the world, Orange is a leader in roaming and sponsored telecommunications platforms.

With Orange, 1&1 benefits from a one-stop shop roaming experience, an immediate roaming coverage and a completely customized roaming solution providing a large array of value-added services and anti-fraud solutions.
“By joining forces with Orange, we have gained a strong and well experienced partner for international roaming that will enable us to automatically offer to our customers excellent network performance even when they are abroad,” says Ralph Dommermuth, CEO of 1&1 AG. “The 1&1 OpenRAN will launch its broadband services for the home at the end of this year, followed by the mobile services in the summer of 2023. All roaming services will be available as of this point.”
“We are very proud to bring our strong expertise and extensive roaming coverage to the new 1&1 OpenRAN mobile network in Germany. Thanks to this partnership, 1&1 will benefit from our customized and innovative roaming model for mobile operators,” Michaël Trabbia, interim CEO Wholesale & International Networks of Orange says.
