O2 is offering landline broadband for free alongside its £20-per-month mobile broadband deal.
Those who sign up to the mobile operator's mobile broadband package, which includes a 3GB-per-month data allowance, and live within reach of O2’s ADSL network qualify for the deal between now and 31 October.
Customers that purchase O2 Mobile Broadband for £20 (US$40) per month (which includes 3GB of data and unlimited Wi-Fi) will receive O2's high quality Home Broadband standard package service for free for a year. The deal is also available to existing O2 Mobile and Home Broadband customers.
Customers wanting to upgrade to a higher speed package or not covered by O2's broadband network will receive a £7.50 per month discount on their chosen plan for 12 months.
Customers can purchase the combined broadband package in any O2 retail store or on the O2 website.
The company has also introduced its O2 Home Broadband Takeaway. From 4 August customers can purchase the O2 Home Broadband Takeaway box for £30 in any O2 store. The package includes a wireless router and the equipment customers need to get started with O2 Home Broadband.
The initial £30 cost of the box will be credited to customer's first broadband bill. This solution is ideal for people seeking a broadband connection who don't have time to wait for engineers.
