MOBILE OPERATOR O2 announced that it has added tablets to its O2 Refresh tariff on Tuesday, a contract that doesn't require users to pay for devices upfront.
Picking up the tablets on O2 Refresh tariff means that users don't have to pay as much upfront, and also means they will be able to upgrade to a newer tablet sooner, as users can opt to pay the remaining cost of the device at any time.
For example, the Xperia Z2 Tablet would cost £529.99 upfront at O2. On O2 Refresh, picking up the tablet with 3GB of monthly data means users would pay £21 a month for the device, and £15 per month for data.
Nina Bibby, marketing and consumer director at O2, said, "Only with O2 can you change your tech whenever you like without having to pay the penalty on your airtime.
"Encouraging feedback from our customers has led us to launch it on tablets this week so more people can benefit from payments spread overtime or paying off early without penalty."
On O2's Refresh tariff, users can opt for either 500MB, 1GB, 3GB, 5GB or 8GB of data, priced at £8, £10, £15, £18 and £25 per month, respectively.
However, given that O2 recently snubbed Ofcom's ban on mid-contract price hikes with a clause in its terms and conditions, these prices could increase in the future. µ
