O2 launches laptop deals


O2 has today become the final network to begin selling mobile broadband with laptop packages.

The network, which has also refurbished a large number of stores in the week building to the launch, began selling three different laptops on two separate tariffs, as part of its ‘Connected World,’ strategy.

Customers can choose for a Samsung NC10 or Samsung R510 laptop, which are free on 24 month mobile broadband plans costing £30 per month with 3GB of download, or £40 per month for 10GB download.

Also available is a ‘multimedia’ version of the Samsung R510 with extra memory and entertainment features, which is available on either tariff for a one-off fee of £80.

Customers will also receive unlimited free Wi-Fi using O2 Cloud hotspots. 

One O2 staffer said: “We have been at a disadvantage regarding sales of mobile broadband for a long time,  but we can now finally compete with the rest of the highstreet.”
