O2’s 4G pricing has been revealed, and – surprise, surprise – it starts at £26 per month, same as Vodafone. Anyone else think they’re missing a trick by not making it £25?
That monthly £26 gets you 1GB data, as well as unlimited minutes and texts, which isn’t overly impressive on the face of it, but Big Blue hopes to woo customers with loads of exclusive O2 4G content.
That O2 4G allowance is identical to that of EE’s £26PM SIM only offer, though it features just half the data of Vodafone’s £26PM tariff, which includes a meaty 2GB of data.
Furthermore, Vodafone’s 4G data will be unlimited for the first three months, which immediately puts O2 4G on the back foot.
However, O2 has a lengthy list of exclusive content for those signing up to 4G, starting with 12 months’ free access to O2 4G Tracks, which features the Official UK Top 40, alongside handpicked playlists and videos.
If sport is more your thing, there’s O2 Priority Sports, with “sporting heroes” offering advice on training and nutrition and stuff.
As for gaming, O2 has signed an exclusive deal with Gameloft allowing customers to play multiplayer games such as Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4: Zero Hour and Zombiewood without eating into their O2 4G allowance.
Other O2 4G incentives include a 90-day happiness guarantee, and access to 9,000 O2 Wi-Fi hotspots.
O2 4G launches on August 29, which just happens to be the same day as Vodafone.
