O2 to offer 4G to existing customers at no extra cost
O2 has announced that it is switching existing customers over to its 4G network for no cost in the coming weeks.
The operator confirmed that those on an O2 3G tariff with a 4G handset would be switched over to the ultrafast network for no extra charge. It's another win for the consumer in the 4G space after announcements by Three and Tesco Mobile, who uses O2's network, that their customers would be eligible for 4G at no extra cost as long as they have the correct hardware.
O2 also revealed that residents of Brighton and St Albans could now use its 4G network, bringing its coverage up to 15 cities and 160 towns.
An O2 spokesperson told Mobile: ‘Last December we launched some new Pay Monthly 4G tariffs, making it easy for customers to experience O24G. As part of this we’re also helping existing customers who have purchased a 4G-Ready handsets from us by adding our 4G service onto their 3G tariff at no extra cost, so they can experience some of the great benefits of O2 4G. We’re contacting those customers now and over the coming weeks to let them know about getting 4G.’
