June 18, 2020: O2 has added more sites to its list of web pages that customers can visit without using their mobile data, helping families with children who would normally receive free school meals to access supermarket vouchers whilst they are at home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The two sites, which have already been zero-rated, include the website Compliments Select which provides access to the supermarket vouchers and the Government’s Hungry Little Minds site, offering support for parents of under 5’s to aid their child’s early learning.
The newly added sites are:
- School children – Free school meal voucher sites
- Pre-school children – Play activities for under 5s
O2 has been working with the government to zero rate these sites, which means customers using their devices to visit them will not use any of their data allocation.
O2 has now zero-rated more than 32 websites as a result of Covid-19, the full list is here.
