O2 brings glorious 4G to Pay & Go, tablets and laptops
- O2 launches 4G tariff on Pay & Go – available in stores and online from today – with Mobile Broadband launching in November
- 4G Pay & Go Go Go is the only 4G tariff that gives customers more benefits the longer they stay on it
O2 today announces the launch of its new 4G tariff for Pay & Go customers, bringing the cost of 4G on O2 down to just £15 a month.
Following the launch of its 4G network just two months ago, O2 has introduced new tariffs to make it even easier for customers to get their hands on 4G. The brand new 4G Pay & Go Go Go tariff offers even more choice and flexibility for customers.
4G Pay & Go Go Go
The new O2 4G Pay & Go Go Go tariff grows in value over time and brings the cost of 4G on O2 down to just £15 a month. From day one, new customers get 500MB of data, 75 inclusive minutes and 500 texts. After three months, the tariff value doubles to 1GB of data, 150 inclusive minutes and 1000 texts.
In addition, existing customers who have been with O2 for three months or longer will move straight to the doubled bundle, meaning from today they can get their hands on 1GB of data, 150 inclusive minutes and 1000 texts for just £15*. If customers want to add more data, an additional 1GB will cost £10 – and they can do this is many times as needed.
This tariff is available with a range of 4G ready devices, including the new Nokia Lumia 625 for just £150, truly making 4G on O2 available to all.
4G Mobile Broadband
O2 today confirmed that customers will also be able to get O2 4G on their tablets and laptops with a new range of 4G Mobile Broadband tariffs, launching in November. These tariffs, released next month, will be available with a range of tablets including the Google Nexus 7.
For customers looking to get 4G on their laptop, the tariffs will also be available on 4G USB dongles, including the Huawei Dongle with mobile wifi, which can connect up to 10 other devices to the 4G network.
“This is a really important time for 4G in the UK” said Phil Maple, General Manager of Consumer Marketing at O2. “Increasingly our customers are telling us that they want choice and flexibility when choosing a tariff, and that’s why we’ve introduced 4G on Pay & Go. Pay & Go Go Go is the only 4G tariff that gets better over time, and it gives our customers an even more flexible and affordable way of getting their hands on this technology.”
“Two months ago we launched 4G for Pay Monthly customers with O2 Refresh. Now we’re bringing glorious 4G to Pay & Go and Mobile Broadband meaning even more people can get can get their hands on brilliant entertainment on the move, whether it’s on their phone, tablet or laptop.”
