France Telecom España S.A.U., more commonly known by its trade name of Orange España, is a mobile network operator in Spain. It was previously known as Amena (pleasant in an amusing way in Spanish) until 2005, when it was bought by France Télécom (now Orange S.A.). Its competitors are Movistar, Vodafone Spain and Yoigo.

Its legal headquarters are in Pozuelo de Alarcón, near Madrid.

Orange itself is not a Spanish word. Its equivalent is naranja, although in advertisements and announcements, Orange is pronounced [ˈoɾantʃ], closer to the English than the French pronunciation of the word.

Orange España is the third mobile phone provider of the four Spanish providers (Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Yoigo), with 11 million customers. The company also offers TV and Internet (ADSL) services.

Orange offers GSM 900/1800 MHz (2G), UMTS 2.1Ghz (3G) HSDPA (3.5G) and now introducing LTE (4G) services. Its network radio access serves to the following Mobile Virtual network Operators (MVNOs, or "Operador Móvil Virtual" in Spanish): MasMovil, Happy Móvil, Carrefour Móvil, Jazztel Movil, Día Móvil and Simyo.
