O2 4G LTE tariffs and pricing

O2's 4G LTE network will launch at the end of the month on 29 August and now there are full pricing details.

Ready to go to mobile network war with Vodafone and EE, O2 has announced its pricing for its 4G plans and tariffs. It previously only said that prices would start at £26 per month for new and existing customers. See also: 4G LTE network rollout schedule in the UK: When will I get 4G?

Below in some nice neat tables are the prices for O2's 4G tariffs. Note that these are introductory prices which will end on 31 October.

O2 said: "All our 4G tariffs give you content that’ll make your heart sing – including a 12 month subscription to O2 Tracks, and exclusive multiplayer online gaming."

The tariffs also include a 90-day 'Happiness Guarantee' which means if you're not satisfied after that amount of time on a 4G plan, O2 will move you to a 3G tariff and give you a bill credit of up to £15.

For those of you with an iPhone 5, the bad news is that you can't use O2's 4G network because the iPhone 5 doesn't support the 800 MHz spectrum. O2 is allowing customer so switch to a 4G compatible smartphone and take 25 percent off the remaining line rental.
