O2 launches 4G tariffs for public and third-sector bodies

O2 says new ‘No. 10’ service for public and third-sector organisations cements its commitment to customer value

Mobile operator O2 has launched a £10 4G tariff, dubbed ‘No. 10’, exclusively for public sector and third-sector (charity and non-profit) bodies, designed to bring better value for cash-strapped organisations.

The supplier said the scheme reinforced its commitment to offering better value to the public sector in the wake of being handed the government’s CAS-T network certification, the first mobile operator to receive the designation.

The £10 per month tariff will offer customers unlimited calls and texts, up to 5GB of data, flexibility on the number of connections under contract, and a choice of either the Nokia Lumia 635 or Samsung Galaxy handset.

The scheme will be made available across the public sector, from central to local government departments, under Lot 6 of the PSN Services Framework as a Direct Award option.

O2 public sector business managing director Billy D’Arcy said: “By giving public sector workers access to the latest digital technology we can ensure citizens are being served by the government in the best possible way. For example, by giving doctors the technology to deliver remote diagnoses to patients or by delivering vital information to citizens through new channels, such as mobile apps.”

The scheme will also offer benefits such as data-wiping services on already-owned devices, and a recycling service, said O2.
