As of March, network providers O2 will be offering landline phone deals to their broadband customers. It’s a move the company hope will help bolster their trailing home broadband position.
“This is the most important launch for us in the home space since we entered the broadband market and is part of our strategy to evolve beyond mobile to a leading connectivity brand ,” said Sally Cowdry, UK Marketing Director at O2. “We know how many of our customers value the convenience of paying for their home phone and broadband together with no hidden extra costs, and we will be bringing the same commitment to quality of service with our home phone service as we have successfully established with broadband.”
The new offer will consist of two home phone packages available to O2 Home Broadband customers. ‘Evening & Weekend’ costs £9.50 per month, offering unlimited calls to UK homes on evenings and weekends. £12.50 per month bags you their ‘Anytime’ service, and offers 24/7 unlimited calls to UK homes, 0845/0870 numbers and landlines in 20 selected international countries. O2 mobile customers will be able to get O2’s Standard broadband package and Evening & Weekend phone package for £17 per month, with line rental chucked in at no extra cost.
O2’s landline services will come with a range of features. Hide My Number, Last Caller ID, and Last Number Delete will all be available to subscribers. A number of other services including Voicemail, Call Waiting, Caller Display, Call Barring and Ring Back will also be available at additional cost.
