O2 has announced a major revamp of its pay monthly tariff deals, simplifying the number of options available, and introducing new better value Apple iPhone contract offerings. O2 has also launched a new flat rate cap of £1 a day or mobile web browsing that will apply across the board to all O2 pay monthly customers.
O2’s new tariff set-up, which will come into effect from February 1st, will offer six basic text and voice call combinations. The cost of the deal will vary depending on the length of the contract (12, 18 or 24 months, or Simplicity monthly deals). Customers can then choose to add extra Bolt-ons to tailor their package; there are seven Bolt-on options, costing £7.50 each.
