New year. New business? Which tariff is right for you?

O2-businessWhen setting up a new business, strong communication is essential if your company is to thrive. Offering a range of great mobile business phone tariffs, O2 can help you get the very best out of your business right away, so we’ve been taking a look at all you need to know to choose the right tariff for you.



The first decision you need to make when choosing an O2 Business Tariff is how many members of staff will be using mobile phones for your business. And do you want to equip them all with new handsets along with their tariff, or do you only need to set up O2 tariffs and source your handsets elsewhere?

Depending on your decision, you will have a choice of four options available to you when browsing O2 Business Tariffs. The options are O2 Business Single with Mobile Phone, O2 Business Single SIM Only, O2 Business Sharer with Mobile Phone and, finally, O2 Business Sharer SIM Only.

O2 Business Single with Mobile Phone
As the name suggests, O2 Business Single with Mobile Phone is tailored to business owners that need to source a handset a tariff for a single employee in their company. Offering great flexibility for choosing precisely the right tariff for your usage needs, there are four O2 Business Tariffs available to you.

All four tariffs require a 24-month contract and let you enjoy unlimited texts and 0.5MB of web data per month, although you can increase your data with O2 Bolt-Ons (see below). You then also have a choice of call plans, letting you pick from 300, 600, 1200 or unlimited minutes of calls per month.

Prices for the O2 Business Single with Mobile Phone tariffs start at just £25 per month for 300 minutes of calls, with 600 minutes of calls costing £30 per month, 1200 minutes of calls costing £40 per month, and the fantastic unlimited calls tariff costing an incredibly affordable £55 per month.

O2 Business Single SIM Only
If you prefer to source your own handset and just need a single mobile phone tariff for yourself or an employee, then the O2 Business Single SIM Only tariff will be the best bet. Offering a great choice of prices and contract terms, you can easily pick exactly the right deal for your needs and business budget.

The most basic O2 Business Single SIM Only tariff only requires you to sign up for a minimum 1-month contract, with prices starting at as little as £12.50 per month. For this you can enjoy unlimited texts and 0.5MB of data, with a choice of 100, 300, 600, 1200 or unlimited minutes of calls per month.

The entry level tariff costs £12.50 per month and gets you 100 minutes of calls, while 300 minutes of calls costs £17.50 per month, 600 minutes of calls costs £22.50 per month, 1200 minutes of calls costs £32.50 per month and unlimited calls can be bagged for just £47.50 per month.

However, if you’re able to commit to a longer contract with O2, you can not only save money but also enjoy far more minutes of calls for the same price. For example, a £12.50 per month 24-month tariff will net you a fantastic 400 minutes of calls, rather than the 100 minutes you get on a 1-month contract.

O2 Business Sharer with Mobile Phone
When you have more employees to equip with both handsets and tariffs, the O2 Business Sharer with Mobile Phone tariffs are your ideal choice. As well as kitting out your business with phones, you can also enjoy great call and text plans which can be shared between your employees on a single tariff.

The entry-level tariff costs £25 per month for the first user, with additional users costing £15 each. This gets you 500 minutes of calls, 500 texts and 0.5MB of data each per month and can be set up for as many as 2-3 users within your company, making it ideal for smaller start-up businesses.

If you have a larger business and greater usage requirements, you can opt for 1300, 2000 and 5000 minutes/texts deals, and equip up to 25 employees with handsets and tariffs for company use, giving full freedom for business owners with larger and more demanding teams to set up for daily communications.

O2 Business Sharer SIM Only
If you have a small to medium business that you want to set up with O2 tariffs, but you don’t need any handsets, then you can opt for an O2 Business Sharer SIM Only deal, giving you the flexibility to enjoy lower monthly costs, while still getting great call and text plans through O2 Business Tariffs.

The entry-level O2 Business Sharer SIM Only tariff costs just £15 for the first user, with additional users costing £10 each per month. This gets you 500 minutes of calls and 500 texts, but you can easily upgrade to as much as 5100 minutes of calls and 5000 texts per month, if your business demands it.
