O2 has become the latest operator to offer 4G on pay as you go, available in stores and online from today (31 October).
Customers of the operator can now have access the ultrafast network from £15 per month, which includes 500MB of data, 75 minutes and 500 texts. After three months of signing up to the offer, users will see allowances double to 100MB, 150 minutes and 1000 texts. Existing customers who have already been with O2 for three months or more will be eligible for the double bundle immediately.
EE released its 4G pay as you go proposition yesterday, offering 1GB of data for £10, while 10GB of double-speed 4G will cost customers £30. It is also starting to offer an £18.99 tarif, the cheapest postpay 4G tariff in the UK, and larger data bundles. Vodafone announced yesterday it will extend its extra 4GB of data initiative to customers signing up to Vodafone Red plans until next year. The UK's second largest operator has also announced it will launch 4G mobile broadband in November, giving customers access to the next generation network on their tablets and laptops.
Phil Maple, general manager of consumer marketing at O2, said: ‘This is a really important time for 4G in the UK. Increasingly our customers are telling us that they want choice and flexibility when choosing a tariff, and that’s why we’ve introduced 4G on Pay & Go. Pay & Go Go Go is the only 4G tariff that gets better over time, and it gives our customers an even more flexible and affordable way of getting their hands on this technology.’
