O2 is attempting to attract new customers to its home broadband service by offering free usage on two of its packages.
Consumers who sign up for O2's The All Rounder and The Works deals on a 12-month contract currently do not need to pay for their broadband usage for the first two months of the agreement.
The network operator's mid-range package, The All Rounder, is normally priced at £17.50 per month for non-O2 customers and includes up to 1.3Mbps upload speeds, plus a double-strength wireless router and up to ten email addresses.
Alternatively, The Works - which costs £26 per month - offers 2.5Mbps upload capabilities, five McAfee Security licences and a static IP address.
Both packages are based on ADSL2+ technology, which enables maximum download rates of 20Mbps.
In September 2010, O2 claimed millions of British consumers are wasting money by selecting broadband services based on headline speeds rather than their actual need.
The service provider insisted the "vast majority" of people could make do with an up to 8Mbps connection.
