    Good news if you carry multiple devices or want to share a data plan with your family: O2 UK has launched two new data sharing plans. The Sharer and Family Sharer contracts give you one data bundle of up to 8GB to share across multiple devices.

    The O2 Sharer Plan is for users with tablets and other data-connected devices as well as their phone. If you’re on the O2 Refresh tariff – minimum 1GB data allowance – you can pay from £6 extra per month to share the data across your kit.

    The O2 Family Sharer Plan is designed to be used by a group. You take out one plan for the lot of you, select a data package from 1GB up to 8GB, and pay £6 for each new person you add to the plan. If you want calls and texts too, it costs £15 a month.

    To help lure you onto one of its Sharer plans, O2 is also throwing in a £25 voucher for Frankie & Benny’s or Chiquito’s when you sign up. Don’t forget that EE also offers shared plans, so shop around to see what’s the best option for you.
