O2 head of home and broadband Felix Geyr said: “We know that customers want to be able to click and go without the hassle of having to load up a mobile broadband dongle and our new range will make surfing the web and staying touch even easier. The laptop market has exploded in the last 18 months and we believe these two laptops from Asus and Samsung will once again give O2 customers a great experience.

“By purchasing the laptop from O2, customers are benefiting from award winning customer service and a number of additional services that other providers charge for. Now we have our O2 Techies if customers have problems getting started they can contact a technical specialist who can talk them through the start up process for no extra cost. Customers also have access to the widest Wi-Fi network in the UK through BT Openzone and The Cloud.”
