On its 20th birthday, O2 looks back on an impressive success story. From the Homezone to the convergent tariff for all networks: Since its launch in May 2002, the brand has stood for freedom, self-determination, innovative strength and customer orientation. With this strategic orientation, O2 has shaped the telecommunications market time and again and will continue to be a fair and high-price pioneer in the market in the future. For all its customers and those who want to become customers, O2 is celebrating its birthday with attractive offers in all areas - mobile telephony, Internet@Home and hardware.
The telecommunications brand O2 celebrates its 20th birthday on 1 May and looks back on an impressive success story. The core brand of O2 Telefónica has repeatedly shaped the telecoms market in this country with innovative products. And now, on the occasion of its 20th birthday, it is doing so with the O2 Grow promotional tariff.
O2 is significantly expanding its gigabit fixed network coverage: From 3 May 2022, O2 will market internet speeds of up to 1 Gbit/s to over 22 million cable households. On the occasion of its 20th birthday, the core brand of O2 / Telefónica Deutschland thus demonstrates once again that it has evolved from a pure mobile communications brand to a comprehensive telecommunications brand.
Since the end of 2020, O2 has been implementing its own fixed broadband products on Vodafone Germany's cable fiber network on the basis of a wholesale agreement. At the time, the agreement was the first cable wholesale agreement in the German market and is currently exclusive to O2. As a result, the Telefónica brand reaches around 24 million households nationwide. This makes cable access a central access route for the company's "Internet for the home" offerings alongside VDSL, fiber optics and fixed-network replacement products based on mobile communications.
O2 Telefónica is taking the management of business customer solutions to the cloud: the telecommunications provider is launching a new cloud-based IT platform for the future-proof management and billing of its digital office and telecommunications solutions in the business customer segment (B2B). For this, the company relies on state-of-the-art software from MATRIXX, a leading provider of 5G converged charging solutions, running on the Google Cloud. Business customers benefit from near real-time billing processes and an optimized billing overview.
With immediate effect, O2 customers as well as interested new customers in numerous regions of Rhineland-Palatinate, North Rhine-Westphalia and Lower Saxony can book faster fixed network connections. To this end, O2 / Telefónica Deutschland has added another strong regional partner to its already leading internet at home availability.
