O2 launches 4G mobile broadband tariffs


Plans start at £15 a month with 5GB of data, with those signing up to the £25 a month plan with 5GB of data before the end of February receiving an additional 3GB a month

O2 has today launched its new 4G mobile broadband plans, enabling customers to experience the download and upload speeds on their tablets and laptops.

The monthly tariffs start at £15 a month for 3GB of data and £25 a month for 5GB of data. Customers choosing the more expensive plan before February 28, 2014 will get an additional 3GB of monthly data allowance as long as they stay signed up to the 5GB plan.

If customers don’t use all of their data one month, they roll over to the next month and receive 12GB of data with their next top-up. They can add 1GB bolt-ons for £10 if they run out of data.

A 90 day tariff for a one-off top-up of £30 is also available, providing 5GB of monthly data.

The tariffs are compatible with a range of tablets including the Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. They are also available with 4G dongles, including the ZTE MF823 for £50 and Huawei E8278 Dongle with mobile Wi-Fi for £65, which allows up to 10 other devices to connect to 4G.

O2 Gurus have also set up a data calculator to help customers choose the data package that is right for them. This lets customers estimate how much monthly data they will use and therefore which tariff to go for.

O2 launched its 4G network on August 29. It is now available across 11 cities and over 90 surrounding towns, covering more than 15 million people across the UK. It will launch in the cities of Edinburgh and Newcastle, as well as the towns of Huddersfield and Wetherby before the end of the year.
