The UK mobile industry seems to have a number of significant issues. The thing is that network operators fail to provide people with upfront cost of smartphones, which is paired with really long and expensive contracts. Thus, the “free of charge” phones are becoming a cornerstone of this industry in the country. However, the new O2 Refresh tariff will be able to become a possible solution of this problem. A representative of the company has made a statement that it will be a tariff, which will make contracts a lot more transparent.
On the 13th of February, O2 announced that the mobile carrier had a serious systems glitch and recommended its users to abstain from discussing private things until the problem solved. Meanwhile, hundreds of O2 users reported that their mobile phone calls had been listened to by strangers.
O2 has added 206,000 new contract customers in the last three months. Despite this impressive increase in client base, the company showed a more than 5 % decline in its revenue. The revenue declined by 5.3 % in comparison with the previous quarter and by 5.4 % as compared with 2011. The number of contract customers added in the quarter saw a 127 % increase on a year on year basis. The first nine months of 2012 also saw a decent increase in contract customers as the company added 679000 clients which was an increase of 155 % in comparison with the last year.
According to recent information, O2 is going to increase non-EU mobile tariffs by 130 percent. US and Canadian callers will need to pay 1,10 pounds instead of 90p for a minute, incoming calls prices will rise from 39 to 90p. More than 18 million O2 customers from the UK will face this inconvenience from November, 28. Those who go to another continent for holidays will have to pay 40p instead of 25p for text messages, which is a 60 percent increase. In comparison to this, inner European tariffs fell in July, 2012. A minute of voice communication costs 24p now and text messages are sent for 7p.
O2 is reported to have signed the deal with Google to sell its Google Nexus 4 in O2’s retail stores exclusively. The carrier will have a head start over its rivals.
