Orange UK is launching three new retail formats in the UK: franchises, community stores and multimedia stores.These will operate alongside its existing high-street stores and its concessions in HMV outlets.
Ten new Orange franchises are expected to open by the end of 2009, with the first franchisee opening a shop in Bridlington, East Yorkshire, this summer.

But what’s causing particular concern now is an apparent breach of UK Data Protection rules.
