O2 LAUNCHES 'YOUR COUNTRY' PAY & GO

O2 UK today announced the launch of Your Country Pay and Go, designed specifically for people who frequently call abroad from the UK to any country in the world. With O2 Your Country Pay & Go, customers pay just £4.99 for a SIM and can then make calls abroad from a free bundle of call time, subject to monthly top up. When customers top up, as well as their top-up credit they get a free bundle of international minutes to call any mobile, or standard landline in the world from the UK. For a monthly top up of £10, customers receive 50 free international minutes. For a £15 top up they get 100 free international minutes and for a £30 top up they get 200 free minutes to call any international mobile or standard international landline. Once the free bundle has been used up, they can call any number abroad for O2’s discounted international rates, for example calls to Europe for just 7p per minute or 30p to a mobile from their top-up credit. Sally Cowdry, Marketing Director at O2 UK said: “Many customers told us they wanted to be able to call abroad from the UK cheaply and easily to wherever their friends and family are in the world. So, as you can expect from O2, we have devised a way for them to do that and we are now the only network to offer prepay customer bundles of free calls to international numbers.” SUMMARY • SIM Card only (RRP £4.99) offering free bundled minutes subject to monthly top-up. • Your Country Pay & Go gives O2 customers their top up credit, plus: – 50 Minutes free to call any international mobile or standard international landline each month provided the customer has topped up £10 in the last 30 days, OR – 100 Minutes free to call any international mobile or standard international landline each month provided the customer has topped up at least £15 in the last 30 days, OR – 200 Minutes free to call any international mobile or standard international landline each month provided the customer has topped up at least £30 in the last 30 days. • Once the free bundle has been used, calls will be charged at the discounted international caller Bolt On rates, for example 7p per minute to standard landlines anywhere in the EU and 30p to mobiles anywhere in the EU from their top-up credit. • Your Country Pay & Go is eligible for O2 Rewards, Treats and all Bolt Ons. • Standard UK domestic calls are charged at Talkalot rates (25p/min for the first 3 mins/day then 5p/min for the rest of the day, other UK network mobiles 40p/min). • Existing O2 customers on a High Street O2 UK SIM (but not those on exclusive online tariffs) can opt in to this tariff by texting ‘Your Country’ free of charge to 21300. The Your Country free minute allowance then replaces any other free allowance they receive when they top-up with their existing tariff (i.e. Talkalotmore and Favourite Place). ENDS
