MUNICH. Telefónica Germany is breaking the rules again. The rate portfolio is being completely redesigned: the new O2 Blue is coming on 1 March. The four options differ mainly by data volume. Users will now be able to make calls and send texts to all German networks for free with each of the smartphone rates. The entry rate is available for 19.99 euros a month and the O2 Blue All-In M for 29.99 euros.
For the high-speed rate O2 Blue All-In XL with 5 GB at full LTE speed, there is even 14 days of surfing abroad and two multicards for laptops and tablets included for less than 50 euros. The O2 Blue All-In L includes 7 days of data usage abroad in the EU in addition to 2 GB of data volume at full speed. A landline number is included with every rate so that O2 customers can be reached inexpensively. "With the new O2 Blue rates we are getting rid of the telephone minute. After O2 Genion and O2 o, we're starting the third revolution in German mobile communications," René Schuster, CEO of Telefónica Germany, says. "We are the first German network operator that is gearing its entire rate portfolio towards the data needs of its customers. Calls and SMS are unlimited with all rates." Rates can be booked online, via the hotline and in all O2 shops. There's also the new O2 Blue for the self-employed, freelancers and entrepreneurs with special advantages. Those who cleverly combine their mobile and landline products will save up to an additional 10 euros per month with the combo offer. Customers will find the right smartphone at O2 My Handy. With the HTC One they'll get for example a high-end LTE device for just 661 euros that also includes a free pair of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones valued at 99 euros.
