The fastest Surfstick from O2 - now also for prepaid customers

MUNICH. As of now Telefónica O2 Germany offers users of prepaid data tariffs the necessary hardware for even faster Web access with the new O2 Prepaid Surfstick. Data can be uploaded almost twice as fast as with the previous version. And the price of 33 euros remains the same. From 20th August the O2 Prepaid Surfstick will also be available as a Colour Edition in the latest cool colours of purple, turquoise and blue.
Using HSUPA technology, the new Prepaid Surfstick enables data transfer rates of up to 7.2 Mbit/s, as well as a faster upload speed of 5.76 Mbit/s. Reception is also improved. Even weak signals can be processed better thanks to two separate internal aerials. All you need for mobile Web access is a spare USB port on your laptop. The Surfstick is installed automatically. The Internet is then available anywhere and at any time, and is not dependent on a DSL connection or a WLAN hotspot. Depending on personal requirements, there is a selection of appropriate daily or monthly flat rates available for the O2 Prepaid Surfstick. This makes the offer just right for occasional mobile Internet use. There is no fixed contract period and no basic charge or minimum usage fee. When the stick is not needed, no costs are incurred. New Internet credit can be easily added by means of an O2 prepaid top-up card, as well as by direct debit, bank transfer or credit card.
