O2 UK OFFERS FREE INCOMING CALLS WHEN TRAVELLING IN EUROPE

O2 UK, today launched a new mobile pricing plan which removes charges when receiving calls abroad. The first operator in the world to launch such a service regardless of which network the call is received on. The new ‘high roamer’ service, aimed at frequent travellers, is the second initiative to be launched under ‘My Europe’ – a low cost roaming tariff for O2 UK customers who travel abroad. Customers who subscribe to the new ‘high roamer’ service pay a monthly fee of £5 to make calls at a reduced rate of 25 pence per minute, a 70% discount over standard rates, as well as receive incoming calls for free whilst travelling in Spain. Small and medium-sized companies can benefit from a discounted monthly fee of £2.50 per month if they take out a 12-month option. Spain has been chosen as the launch market for this new service since more of O2 UK’s customers travel there frequently on business, or on holiday, than any other country. In the first half of next year, the company will expand the service to more than 35 countries across Europe as part of its successful range of Bolt-on packages. Call charges will be the same as the high roamer service covering Spain.  -ends-
