Spot the irony

This is a real screenshot from orange.co.uk's "International Services" webpages (Ooooh... you want to go abroad!? ... don't know if we like that...)

Spot two ironic statements:
  • While in France, it's cheaper to use competitor Bouyges Telecom's network than Orange's own(!!!)
  • While in UK, you can not send messages to any French friends who are unfortunate enough to be on the SFR (a Vodafone partner). Hello? GSM is all about interoperability?
Ohhhhh the irony of getting used to the silly business limitations randomly applied on modern technology....
