Wifi flat rate and data add-on packages for O2 business customers

-Bringing mobile data back to full speed via text message
-More monthly data volume without changing into another option
-Unlimited mobile surfing at more than 3,000 German Wi-Fi-hotspots
-Wi-Fi flat rate: no consumption of tariff-included data volume
MUNICH. Telefónica in Germany offers its business customers more flexibility for mobile data consumption. For this, two new products are coming onto the market: With the Wifi flat rate for only 2.50 euros net a month business customers can infinitely surf the Internet on more than 3,000 WLAN hotspots in Germany. Furthermore company customers can extend their high speed data volume simply via text message. This works not only for Germany but also while roaming abroad.
The Wifi Flat is already available and the new add-on packages can be easily booked as of August 1st: Before reaching the possible limit of high speed data transmission business customers will receive a text message. Then they only have to answer either with "Travel" to get add-on packages for abroad, or with "Data" for the home country - and yet their consumption will be reset to zero until the end of the billing period. For instance, for only 10 euro net one gigabyte gets added to the company customer tariff O2 on Business M. And in the O2 on Business XL even 10 gigabyte are added for 15 euro net. The Internet Pack EU and the data volume from the EU+ Travel Option can also be easily reset by paying a non-recurring fee. Business customers can optionally book these convenient add-on packages at any time within the billing period. The new data volume will then be valid until the end of the payroll month, or - in case of the Internet Day Pack EU - until the end of the calendar day.
"Fast mobile Internet data are a decisive competitive factor for German companies," as Michiel van Eldik, Chief Marketing Officer at Telefónica in Germany, explains. "With our new offers they are available at any time and with the desired speed. Even towards the limit the data transmission continues to run at full speed with the add-on packages or the Wifi flat rate." The Wifi flat even enables infinite internet consumption without debiting the data volume of the mobile phone tariff at all. In order to use the flat rate the cooperation partner The Cloud has installed more than 3,000 Wi-Fi-hotspots in Germany at which O2 business customers can surf the web with landline speed. All business customers of O2 can book the Wifi flat rate in addition to all mobile phone tariffs. For only 2.50 euro net per month this option allows to connect to all German hotspots from The Cloud. This add-on can easily be booked on the O2 website, the activation will be completed within 24 hours. The Cloud provides its free app FastConnect to find the WiFi networks. It can be installed on smartphones or tablets with Android or iOS and takes the users to the hotspots from The Cloud. Once the WLAN of The Cloud is within distance FastConnect automatically connects the devices with the internet, just as one knows from at home or office. You will find more information at
