O2 today announces the launch of International Extras, bringing great value international calling to seven countries not previously covered by its International Favourites Bolt On. International Extras has been specially tailored to meet the needs of people who regularly call mobiles in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, Ghana, Iraq and Bulgaria, offering up to 260 mobile minutes for just £10.

International Extras is only available to O2 customers and is quick and simple to set up. Customers can choose either a £5 or £10 Bolt On directly from their Pay Monthly or Pay & Go mobile by texting the right country keyword to a special shortcode. They can then start making calls straight away with no monthly fees or hidden charges. When the minutes run out another bundle of minutes can be bought by simply sending another text.

International Extras offers some of the best value rates on the market for calling mobiles in Pakistan and Bangladesh. For £5 customers will get 100 minutes to mobiles in Pakistan and 125 minutes to mobiles in Bangladesh.

‘We know that the vast majority of calls made to these countries are made to mobile numbers,’ said Gary Booker, General Manager, Consumer at O2. ‘So we have created a product to bring the best value to our customers who want to stay in touch with their family and friends in these countries. Our portfolio of international calling products now means that wherever a customer wants to phone, we can offer a great value calling rate and an open and honest approach with no hidden charges.’

International Extras joins O2’s growing portfolio of international calling products powered by the Jajah voice over IP platform. International Favourites offers a huge bundle of minutes (3000) to three numbers in over 60 countries for just £10.21 per month. O2’s recently launched Calling Card product offers a quality alternative for those who value the freedom and flexibility of international calling cards.
