Saving £100,000 a year with mobile contracts migration

Last year we agreed a new contract with O2 in an initiative that should save the University more than £100,000 a year. To help us reach this target, we are working with departments to coordinate the migration of old Vodafone or O2 connections to the new O2 tariffs. We will soon be getting in touch with the remaining departments to complete an audit of phone and tablet connections that need migrating or which may need disconnecting if they’re no longer used.

As well as saving a huge amount of money every year, the new arrangement with O2 means that all tariffs will include unlimited calls and texts. They will also be on 30-day rolling contracts, so they can be easily cancelled if they’re no longer needed, or changed to better suit your needs. For example, if you find you need more data than you originally thought, the allowance can be increased as quickly as the next month.

You may not need a new handset, but if you do, a new range of 4G-enabled phones is available to suit your work requirements and all work well with Google Apps. To look at the range of handsets and tariffs available, visit our mobiles page.
