O2 offers 2G, 3G and 4G network coverage across the UK. You can use O2’s network calculator to check which networks are available in your local area. Simply enter in your postcode or the name of your town on their website to discover which networks cover you.
O2 provides a variety of different mobile plans for customers. They offer pay monthly phone contracts which include data, minutes and texts and last for 24 months, pay as you go SIM’s as well as pay as you go bundles, and SIM-only plans on a monthly or 12 monthly basis.

The O2 classic pay as you go SIM allows you to top up with a minimum of £10.
O2’s pay as you go bundles require a minimum credit amount in order to be ‘unlocked’. You’re bundle will only automatically renew if you have enough credit in your account. If you don’t then you will be charged the standard rates for calls, texts and data usage.
You can top up your pay as you go plan online, from your mobile, at any UK cash machine with the green top up logo, by using an E-Top Up card you by buying a voucher anywhere with the green top up logo.

The amount of data you require depends on how much internet you will be using on your mobile each month.
It is difficult to determine an exact correlation between data and internet usage but approximately 1GB would allow you to view either around 3000 web pages, 10 000 emails or spend 4 hours streaming videos.
