O2 launches prepay mobile broadband offer


O2 has launched a prepay mobile broadband USB modem at £29.99, claiming it to offer the best value on the market.

The service is available from £2 per day for 500 MB, £7.50 per week for 1GB or £15 per month for 3GB, all with unlimited Wi-Fi access to over 6,000 hotspots.

Prepay mobile broadband customers will also benefit from the operator’s coverage checker and 50-day Happiness Guarantee which allows customers to return the device to O2 within 50 days of purchase with no termination fees being charged and any costs for purchasing the device being refunded.

The operator said that since these were introduced last month, it has seen a considerable drop in the number of returned USB modems,

O2 marketing director Peter Rampling said: “Last month we stated our intention to clean up the mobile broadband market and give consumers the fairest and most honest deals.

“Our O2 Mobile Broadband Pay & Go will appeal to those customers who want to snack on the internet without the need to commit to a long term contract. Our younger customers want to live online and can do so with Pay & Go at affordable prices.”
