Finally, the benefits of being an o2 customer are becoming clear!
If you’d like to go to one of Michael Jackson’s strictly limited (until next time) concerts at the o2 Dome, then this morning was D-Day for you.
Priority tickets were available from 7am this morning to o2 customers.
I still don’t really see the connection between being an o2 customer and getting these sorts of offers. It’s certainly cool. But is it going to make me switch operator?
Maybe. I wonder.
At 721, Mr Data Centre himself, Steve O’Donnell of The Hot Aisle, logged on to the o2 Blueroom site and found it unavailable. Finding business critical servers offline or overloaded is like a red rag to a bull for Steve. He was not impressed.
I haven’t managed to find out if he’s secured any tickets yet though.
As for me, well I always enjoyed the spectacle of a Michael Jackson concert.
If o2 keeps on bringing superstar acts to the Dome and continues to create priority offerings, I can see some Vodafone, T-Mobile and Orange customers beginning to weaken…
If you’d like to snag some tickets — make sure you’re on o2 — or go and get an o2 sim this morning — you can do so at http://www.o2blueroom.co.uk/
I do like the sound of an ‘o2 Angel’, by the way:
Look out for our angels. They’ll give you instant upgrades and tell you about the perks you can get if you’re on O2. They’ll even take your picture for our blueroom gallery.
