New O2 tariffs for self-employed people:5G, double data volume and improved service
In the past twelve months, customers sent almost 1 billion gigabytes of data volume through the O2 mobile network - also because self-employed people and small businesses are using more and more mobile data. This shows that the O2 tariffs with their large data volumes at attractive prices meet the needs of customers. For private customers, O2 will, as just announced, equip the new data tariffs with twice as much performance at the same price and offer three new unlimited tariffs. With the start of the Decade of Mobile Communications, O2 is now taking the next step and will also significantly increase the data volume in its products for the self-employed from 4 February 2020 - but not the prices.
"With the introduction of the large and competitively priced data packages, our customers have changed their usage behavior. This also applies to self-employed persons and small companies. They use more data to work flexibly and from anywhere. And the introduction of 5G will cause data consumption to grow significantly again," explains Jörg Wrede, Director Strategy, Pricing & Business Excellence Telefónica Germany. "We offer the self-employed and small businesses an excellent overall product consisting of data-rich tariffs, top hardware, connectivity of up to 10 devices and premium service at a convincing price-performance ratio," he adds. "In addition, we are already giving our customers the assurance that they can get 5G at no extra cost". Only the self-employed now receive 40 GB (M Boost) instead of 20 at the previous price point of 29.99 euros and 120 GB instead of 60 GB (L Boost) for 39.99 euros.1 The data volume can be used for up to 10 devices via the familiar Connect option of the Boost tariffs: This gives them the advantage of using their smartphone, tablet, Smartwatch and the phone in the car via the central data volume.2 The new O2 Free L Boost is 5G ready.3 With the combined advantage, customers can book up to four additional cards for their employees with a 50 percent price advantage, e.g. the O2 Free Unlimited Basic4 with unlimited data volume for only 14.99 Euro5.
Mega data volumes and top smartphones for self-employed people
O2 also offers attractive hardware bundles: Especially in the tariffs from the O2 Free M Boost onwards, the self-employed benefit twice over from the combination of free boost option and attractive hardware discounts. For example, self-employed people pay EUR 44.99 per month via O2 You for the iPhone 11 (64 GB) in combination with the O2 Free M Boost with a one-off payment of EUR 49 if they decide on 24 monthly installments. If they choose 36 monthly installments, they pay 34.99 Euros per month - without any additional costs. This includes 40 GB, instead of the previous 20 GB, high-speed data volume and a telephone and SMS flat rate to all German networks. The self-employed also benefit from the service: O2 offers an exclusive customer service with its own hotline for the self-employed. Specialised service teams provide competent assistance from Monday to Friday between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. and on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on 0179 4444 333 for mobile phones and 0800 4110 400 for fixed network products.
