Our Product Recommendations

We would recommend O2 Pay As You Go Mobile Broadband because it gives the most flexibility and you will save money if you don't need to use the internet regularly.

O2 has dropped the data allowance on its monthly contracts to 1GB, so now there is little economic benefit in signing up for a contract apart from the fact that the modem is cheaper on the contract, but this is not particularly significant.

You can sign up for a contract safe in the knowledge that if your mobile broadband performance at home does not meet your expectations, the contract can be cancelled within 30 days of purchase under O2's Happiness Guarantee.

O2 Mobile Broadband Returns Policy

O2 offers a 30 Day Happiness Guarantee. If you’re not happy, you can return the USB modem within 30 days and O2 will refund the cost of your USB modem, plus cancel any contract you have. We would also advise including written notice of your wish to cancel.

Typical Broadband Connection Speeds

Broadband speed test results achieved in our preliminary testing in June 2010 were as follows:

Fastest Broadband Speed Obtained: 0.41 Mb/s
Slowest Broadband Speed Obtained: 0.02 Mb/s
Average Broadband Speed: 0.30 Mb/s, based on 7 results.

Value for Money

O2 Pay As You Go has a Daily Mobile Broadband option and can therefore offer very good value for money if you're only going to be using the service occasionally.

O2 mobile broadband contracts offer reasonable value for money, and compare well with most other providers. Whilst it is true to say that you can find more generous data allowances from other providers, we think network connection performance should be the primary consideration when choosing your network.

VOIP / Skype Policy

VOIP is not permitted (correct as at 30 Aug 2011).
