O2 home broadband customers facing price hike
Some of O2's home broadband customers are facing an annual price rise of almost £50 from the end of next month.

As of March 31st 2011, the network operator is raising the monthly fee for its Access package by between £2.63 and £4.12 per month.

The move comes following a comprehensive refresh of O2's broadband packages last September, which the carrier claimed was conducted to reflect the way its subscribers use the internet.

"We want our customers to continue to receive a great service, which means investing more in our network and, as a result, we are increasing our prices," it explained.

The forthcoming launch of a national network of free public Wi-Fi access points is among O2's planned infrastructure developments for the coming months.

By 2013, the company is aiming to have at least twice the combined number of hotspots offered by BT Openzone and The Cloud. The rollout will get underway at its retail and office premises across the UK.
