O2 Germany Offers the O2 Surf Stick with Prepaid Package

Posted on September 23rd, by Kim Poh Liaw in archive. 1 Comment

Available from October 1, Telefónica O2 Germany will offer the O2 Surf Stick in a prepaid version. The stick enables the rapid web access for prepaid customers via UMTS/HSDPA and is available for € 69.99. In the first month after the purchase, customers will get the data flat rate for free. Afterwards, they can surf the web for € 25 a month.


After the free test month, the flat rate will be extended provided there is enough credit on the prepaid card. Should the credit not be enough, the customer receives a reminder by SMS and is requested to recharge the card.

By the end of the year, the entire UMTS network of Telefónica O2 Germany will be HSDPA capable. The data accelerator EDGE which O2 launched a couple of days ago will complement HSDPA. In addition, HSUPA will be launched.

    Until it mentions the SMS, I thought “just a pre-paid HSPA USB Modem?” … but last I checked USB modems don’t usually do SMS, do they? Or is that functionality only supported on Windows or something annoying like that?
