So far the different mobile and land-line broadband packages have only applied to customers with comparatively expensive monthly contracts. O2 Broadband is to extend its £5 discount to all its pre-pay (pay as you go) customers who top up their mobile with £10 every three months. The discount will be offered from Friday 22nd February 2016.
Pre-pay customers utilizing of the offer are required to agree to a 12 month contract on the broadband service and the discount is routinely suntracted from the 02 broadband bill providing they keep meeting the £10 every three months top up statute. If the £10 rule is not met then they will be charged the non-discounted price for the broadband service on that particular bill.
Three broadband packages are available from O2, Standard at £7.50 for an up to 8Mbps connection, Premium for £10 per month with up to 16Mbps connection speeds and finally Ultimate with an up to 20Mbps connection for £15 a month. Standard and Premium offer an upstream speed of up to 1.3Mbps, Ultimate increases the upload speed to 1.6Mbps. The non-discounted prices work out at £5 a month more. There is no distinct usage limit, however a fair use policy applies to all three products.
The services are only available where O2 has installed its own hardware at the local telephone exchange (generally known as unbundling an exchange). The O2 checker will allow you to see if it is available in your area.
