Orange working on a “VoIP option” (Skype?), may launch it in Q1 2010

Shortly after AT&T opened its 3G network to VoIP, the folks over at Orange France said that they’re working on a VoIP option as well (this should allow subscribers to use services like Skype via the carrier’s network).

According to Mac4Ever, Orange France plans to launch the VoIP option sometime in the first quarter of 2010, although no exact details were given.

SFR and Bouygues Telecom, the other two major French mobile operators, don’t seem to be interested in VoIP at the moment – Bouygues even said that the voice quality through VoIP does not meet their expectations for the time being.

Orange is currently France’s largest mobile operator and opening its network to VoIP will probably make many users happy.

Skype is facing multiple litigations and is about to either be shut down permamently, or enter very expensive settlement arrangements. Plus, Skype is not is control or ownership of Global Index technology, the node forming augmentation of delivery system which they push to each user computer.
