Global eSIM Store eSIM.net has launched the first local UK eSIM service in the form of the O2 UK eSIM. The new service is focused on offering UK residents lower tariffs on the O2 network and all the benefits of eSIM technology while at home in the United Kingdom.
The O2 eSIM works on a rolling 30-day contract and there are five plans to choose from: 2GB for £14.00, 8GB for £19.00, 24GB for £24.00, 50GB for £27.00, and UNLIMITED for £30.00. Each plan comes with unlimited minutes and messages, 5G connectivity, and WiFi calling.
It should be highlighted that with Unlimited data plans there is generally a fair usage policy where the data works at full speed until a certain limit is reached and it is then slowed down. eSIM.net’s policy is 650GB of high speed data for domestic UK data traffic and 25GB per month on EU data roaming.
Through previous surveys by eSIM.net, one of the main benefits of an eSIM is a convenient second number which is typically used for two-factor SMS authentication or simply a number for privacy or as a separate work line.
eSIMs have largely been appreciated by travellers, but as COVID-19 brought travel to a halt, eSIM.net used it as an opportunity to work on introducing the first local eSIM service for the UK but with Roam Like Home also included in all EU countries.
Whilst roaming in the EU you will not incur any additional charges and will retain your local O2 UK number. You can call and text back to any regular UK mobile or landline and to any regular mobile or landline in the country that you are roaming in.
It is the latest product by the London-born eSIM store designed to make connectivity easier and more affordable while giving UK users more control over their mobile plans.
“We firmly believe that UK domestic consumers want the flexibility and convenience provided by eSIM services and are pleased to be exclusively offering the O2 eSIM service at typical UK SIM only pricing,” says Gerry O’Prey, eSIM.net’s Director of Technology.
eSIM.net has been a pioneer in the eSIM industry since its inception in 2019 and the launch of the O2 UK eSIM service is another demonstration of their determination to improve the mobile experience through eSIM technology. Other operators will replace a SIM Only service on request, but eSIM.net is the first to remove the need for a plastic SIM altogether.
