A year ago O2 launched its three current broadband packages, The Basics, The All Rounder and The Works, which were all based around a varying fair usage allowance and traffic management. A blog entry and the O2 Home Broadband website have now updated to reveal a relaxation of the fair usage allowance on the two more expensive products, The All Rounder and The Works.
The pricing and traffic management remain the same, which means their lowest priced unlimited broadband package is £12.50 a month if an O2 mobile customer, or £17.50 otherwise. If you let O2 handle your telephone line rental and calls the combined package for an O2 mobile customer is £22.50 a month. The Basics product remains unchanged with its 20GB monthly allowance.
O2 is sweetening its products further with a three months free broadband offer, and those who have been an O2 mobile customer can get six months free broadband. The free offer does not apply to those who opt for a 30 day rolling contract, which as an option is very rare amongst the larger broadband providers.
