O2 4G mobile broadband now 6 months free

O2 4G mobile broadband now 6 months free

Thursday, 17 August, 2017

There’s all sorts of free going on with O2 4G mobile broadband dongle at the moment.

The deal offers 2GB of 4G data per month at speeds up to 67Mbps. It’s on a 24-month contract, but you pay nothing for the first six months.

O2 will even post you your Huawei Balong B711 dongle for free.

After the free period the cost goes up to £10 a month, so in the first year you’ll pay £60 in total.

No other 4G mobile broadband deal comes close to O2 for speed at this price.

Virgin’s 1GB a month mobile broadband dongle is cheaper at £48 in the first year, and it comes on a shorter 12 month contract. But Virgin can only offer connection speeds of up to 25Mbps, putting O2 way out in front.
