O2 has launched what it says is the UK's leading priced mobile broadband Pay & Go service. Offering its USB modem at £29.99, O2 promises "clear pricing and no strings attached".

O2 Mobile Broadband Pay & Go offers download speeds of up to 3.6Mbps and gives unlimited access to over 6,000 Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK, through its partners at The Cloud.

O2 Mobile Broadband Pay & Go is available in a range of options starting at £2 a day for 500MB, £7.50 a week for 1GB or £15 a month for 3GB, all with the unlimited Wi-Fi access.

Peter Rampling, O2 marketing director said: "Our O2 Mobile Broadband Pay & Go will appeal to those customers who want to snack on the Internet without the need to commit to a long term contract. Our younger customers want to live online and can do so with Pay & Go at affordable prices".
