O2 Business reduces costs

Mobile surfing in all EU countries outside Germany for five Euros net per day

MUNICH. Telefónica Germany lowers prices for business customers surfing the internet abroad: the Internet Day Pack EU is being reduced from 12.50 Euros net to just five Euros net per day. O2 Business customers can thus enjoy unlimited internet surfing in EU countries outside Germany as well as in other selected European countries that belong to World zone 1*. This means that foreign travellers benefit from a substantial discount compared with the standard charge of 1.50 Euros net per megabyte.
The Internet Day Pack EU is offered with all O2 Business tariffs. The sole exception is the special tariff O2 Business Data M2M for mobile communication from machine to machine. The 60 percent reduction in the price of the Internet Day Pack EU to five Euros net per day applies not only to new customers, but also automatically to all existing customers who already use this data package. If business customers do not use the Internet Day Pack EU on a specific day, this daily flat-rate charge is not applied. Users thus obtain the highest level of flexibility possible and complete cost control. Should a customer nevertheless desire the current standard charge per megabyte, this can be selected at any time.
"With the Internet Day pack EU, business travellers who are dependent on mobile internet abroad have unlimited opportunities with complete cost transparency. They never pay more than five Euros net per day for data usage in world zone 1, no matter how much they surf", says Johannes Pruchnow, Managing Director Business at Telefónica Germany. "Just in time for the holiday season, we are making it possible for our business customers to use their smartphones and laptops abroad without any worries." With the Internet Day Pack EU, business customers in world zone 1 can retrieve their e-mails, search the internet and download data to an unlimited extent using their Smartphone and Laptop. Data usage via a blackberry smartphone is also included. Users can surf at up to HSDPA speed, and up to a volume of 50 megabytes per day. Thereafter mobile internet access can continue to be used for the rest of the day at a reduced speed. The Internet Day Pack EU is the ideal addition to the domestic tariffs O2 on Business and O2 on Business Upgrade, which include data usage in Germany as well as all national telephone calls.
