O2 targets shorter broadband contracts


O2 makes move on short-term mobile broadband customers with new packages

O2 has launched a new monthly mobile broadband tariff as part of a fleet of packages to provide short-term data access.

The £5 a month mobile broadband tariff allows customers to access the internet for 30 days, with 500MB data allowance across the O2 network and unlimited Wi-Fi access. In addition, there is a one-off payment of £19.99 for the dongle.

O2 has also launched two new prepay mobile broadband starter kits. The kits include pre-loaded dongles that expire in either one or three months, can be used straight out of the box and include unlimited Wi-Fi.

The starter kits are priced at £29.99 for 1GB of pre-loaded data with three months expiry or £34.99 for 2GB of data which expires in one month.

O2 head of home and broadband marketing Vishal Khakhar said: “We know that customers want to access the internet more and more and also are looking for shorter contracts.

“By offering this market leading 30-day rolling contract we are giving customers flexibility without having to top-up on pay and go.”
