Reduced call rates while abroad
O2 has announced reductions for its European customers using mobile phones abroad.
Customers in Spain, the UK, Germany, the Czech Republic and Ireland will benefit from cuts of more than 40% in data roaming prices, while the cost of sending a text message home from anywhere in the European Union also falls. For business travellers who want to stay connected while abroad, a new roaming bundle provides worldwide access to data at a price equivalent to €1 per MB.
O2 businesses and movistar in Spain will implement a range of new data roaming tariffs aimed at consumers travelling within Europe from July this year.
From March 2008, mobile laptop users will be able to monitor their data usage in real-time via their ‘Connection Manager’ software, while all roaming customers will automatically receive a text message containing SMS, data and voice pricing information.
