UK mobile operator O2 is to slash international calling charges across its Pay & Go range, allowing its customers to make calls to mobiles and landline numbers from as little as 1p a minute, with texts costing just 10p.
The mobile carrier has said it will cut charges on existing Pay & Go SIM cards, rolling out the same calling rates to new customers with the launch of its new O2 International SIM. Some calls will be reduced from £1.50 to 1p a minute.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
Initially, the International SIM will allow customers to call mobile and landline numbers in India and China at 1p per minute, adding Pakistan for 4p a minute and the US for just 2p per minute. O2 will also combine its Unlimited tariff so customers can send unlimited messages between them and other O2 customers with a £10 top up, providing unlimited O2 to O2 phone calls with a £15 top up.
The new SIM card will suit consumers that have friends or family outside of the UK and don’t want to sign up for additional contracts or become bogged-down with international calling cards. The SIM can operate purely as a separate account used purely for international calls or if topped-up regularly can double as a regular number with O2’s unlimited bundles.
