So you’re an o2 user, right? You’re paying 4 quid a meg for data, right? And you’re a chump for doing so? Yes?
Well, here’s a fix that saves you having to swap. It comes to us care of SMS Text News reader Alan who contributed a comment to this post about o2′s upcoming data strategy.
I’ve copied the comment here:
When I cancelled my O2 account (to switch to Three’s x-series) I was offered ‘unlimitedÃ¢â‚¬Â data for a tenner a month as long as I had a tariff of £30 a month or more. It was put to me as though it’s a standard deal, but obviously it’s just a retensions thing as it’s never appeared on their website.
That’s a bit rude isn’t it?
You phone up to cancel and then they say, ‘well, er, hold on… you know we were screwing you for 4 quid a meg? Right. Well, look, we still want your business, and since you’ve woken up, smelt the coffee, we’ll do you a deal..’
So if you’re paying shitloads to o2 for data, gonna do me a favour? Just, please, help reduce my generate stress levels by phoning up o2 and sorting yourself out with an unlimited data addition. OR terminate your contract and get hold of a Three or T-Mobile contract.
No guarantees that you’ll get the same treatment as Alan, but worth giving it a go.
