O2 launches new SME and consumer tariffs


Range of tariffs offers deals on minutes and texts, and exclusive to existing customers

O2 has launched a new range of consumer and SME tariffs, offering more minutes and texts as well as exclusive deals to existing customers.

New and existing business customers signing-up to the O2 Business Share 5000 tariff, can now choose from a number of new text and minute bolt-ons.

Customers will be able to choose from several bolt-on minutes and texts, which can be shared on a first-come, first-served basis.

Customers can choose between 10,000, 20,000 and 30,000 message bundles, as well as 30,000, 50,000 and 100,000 voice minute bundles. There are 3GB, 6GB and 9GB data bundles also available. Details on bundle prices were not available at press, however.

For consumers, O2 is now offering an exclusive 12-month deal for its existing prepay and broadband customers, with 300 minutes and unlimited texts for £15.50 per month. A 12-month SIM-only version for £10.50 per month is also expected.

O2 is offering an addition 500 minutes to other O2 numbers, when taking a selected smartphone on a monthly contract. The additional minutes are currently available on the Samsung Galaxy Ace, HTC Wildfire S and BlackBerry Curve 9300. Handsets will change on a monthly basis, O2 said.

All customers signing-up to a 30-day or 12-month O2 Simplicity tariff will now be given unlimited texts.

An O2 spokesperson said before the launch: “We can confirm that we’re launching some new, single voice tariffs, shared text and minute bolt-ons and shared data tariffs.

“We’re also making some changes to our SIM-only pricing. These changes will offer our business customers more flexibility and choice.”
