The mobile company Hutchison Essar was branded in Mumbai as Orange. Before Orange, it was called Max Touch and Acetel before that. In December 2006, Hutchison Essar was relaunched asHutch. Following acquisition by the Vodafone Group, the company renamed itself as Vodafone Essar. The marketing brand changed to just 'Vodafone' on 20th September 2007

They are all essentially mobile phone service providers with fringe services like land line phones, internet and a range of miscellaneous services. All of them lack transparency and good at avoidance when you raise a query or request for any service or assistance. Even Bharti Cellular Services , which is highly rated amongst the corporates are indulging in unfair practices, thanks to the lack of customer consciousness in India. I have a few corporate and personal connections of Airtel , one from Vodaphone, two from Tata Indicom, one from BSNL and one from Reliance. They are bad, sub standard and horrible. We tolerate them for lack of alternatives in India. Go ahead and kill yourself with any one of them.

Orange was a company named Orange Plc (UK) which had agreements with Hutchinson Whampoa (It was originally a joint venture between Hutchinson Whampoa and Essar) to use its trademark and name in Mumabai, Navi Mumbai and Kalyan area. In 2000 Orange was acquired by France Telecom so Hutch had to discontinue using Orange name. Subsequently, Hutchinson's stake was taken by Vodafone and thus it is named vodafone.
