O2 UK Launch Slightly Refreshed Pay As You Go Mobile Tariffs

Mobile operator O2 (VMO2) has launched a refreshed range of ‘Pay As You Go’ (PAYG) tariffs, which start with a top-up of £10 (lasting for 30-days) and that gets you 7GB of data (mobile broadband), unlimited minutes and unlimited texts.

The “new” tariffs aren’t actually all that different from what they were promoting before, aside from some small changes to prices and data allowances here and there (e.g. the £10 top-up previously gave you 6GB and their old £5 ‘Calls and texts‘ option is no longer being listed).

However, data-hungry customers can get their hands on 100GB of data for just £30, which will now also include 500 minutes to international numbers in 29 countries. Other changes include a new £20 Big Bundle which gives customers 30GB, as well as the usual unlimited minutes and texts.

Otherwise, the old Data Rollover feature still exists, and customers can also benefit from joining ‘O2 Rewards’ when they take out such a tariff, giving them the chance to earn back 5% back on all top-ups every three months. Customers who have been with O2 for six months may benefit from the % of rewards they can earn increasing to 10% every three months.

    o2 owned Giffgaff still offer a talk and text option that also has 500MB data for £6 a month.

    1. Me says:

      Asda Mobile, using Vodafone, offer a talk and text deal for £4 a month.

    2. Mml says:

      Lebara, using Vodafone. 1000 minutes, unlimited texts, 2 GB data for £5

  2. xchris says:

    SMARTY £5/mo = 500MB + Unlimited calls & texts

  3. John says:

    Mark. I think the article needs correcting as the £5 talk and text bundle is still on sale, see:

      The £5 tariff is indeed no longer on sale to new customers. It was removed from the O2 sales page last week
      https://www.o2.co.uk/shop/sim-cards/pay-as-you-go?osr=payg#simtype=bigbundles

      And o2 SIM dealers are no longer able to order SIMs with the £5 tariff, although residual stock may still be circulation.

      The £5 tariff remains as a legacy tariff for customers already on the plan and also as a retention bundle, as a result the help and support page you linked to continues to mention the tariff.

      Thanks for the clarification @Mike80

    They need to refresh their network, switch it all off and switch it back on again with better capacity and backhaul. The complaints all over giffgaff around this is shocking and they couldn’t give a toss.

    1. Connor says:

      They really need to, ended up contacting them on behalf of my girlfriend and having them admit to me their network has been over capacity in Wolverhampton for the last 3 years.

      I usually have to tether her whenever we go places and she wants to use data.

  5. Buggerlugz says:

    Why totally price yourself out the market whilst MVNO’s are selling your product cheaper? Makes no sense to me.

    1. Mike80 says:

      To focus on what they view as more profitable customers on contracts, pushing less profitable customers to their cheaper to operate subsidiary Giffgaff and their joint venture Tesco Mobile…

  6. Gary says:

    £10 top up that lasts for 30 days, so a £10 a month contract regardless of weather youneed to ‘top up’ or not. Hardly Pay as you go.

    1. Carl O says:

      Only if you purchase a bundle which lasts 30 days, otherwise the top up as credit lasts 120 days I think, or at least you need to make a chargeable call every 120.

    2. Gary says:

      Well yes Carl but the very article stated ‘tariffs, which start with a top-up of £10 (lasting for 30-days)’

  7. Andy W says:

    I’ve got 100gb of data, unlimited minutes and texts for £16 on vodafone I get £6 cashback and it’s the best coverage of them all (and I’ve tried them all).
