If you are looking to get ahold of Sony’s beautiful new Xperia X8 in The Netherlands, then you could do a lot worse than check out KPN’s current deals. As one of the largest mobile phone networks in the country, KPN will provide you with full coverage all over The Netherlands and Europe, and they offer an excellent choice of packages with this phone.
As with all contract phones, the standard package is for 2 years with the handset included, however KPN also offer a 1 year contract with the same conditions if you pay 59.95 towards the phone (which retails at 179.95 on a prepaid package). There is also a one off 29.95 connection fee with this phone.
The “flexible” tariff with no free minutes or SMS messages will set you back 12.50 per month, this is for people who don’t use their phone so much and will not take advantage of the free minutes and SMS offered. With this package, calls are on a sliding scale depending on how often you use your phone. The first 200 minutes are charged at 15cents per minute, but if you use more the prices become cheaper, with between 200 and 400 at 13 cents and over 400 minutes 11 cents. SMS messages on this package will cost 18 cents per message.
Flexible users wanting internet access will have to pay 10 per month on top of this, or 15 for extra fast internet.
KPN also offer a variety of plans with free messages and minutes to suit customers who use their phone a lot. There are 9 packages in total, from 100 minutes per month and SMS for 20 up to 1480 minutes per month for 298 pcm. At the moment they are running an offer whereby your first 9 months are half price, this also applies to your internet connection, so you can make great savings with this offer.
KPN is also running a number of special offers to help their customers get the best value for money according to their specific needs. For 10 you can get unlimited SMS messages, or for 2.50 you can buy a flexible tariff allowing you to change your plan should you wish. For 4.50 you can get a service which allows you to pay landline rates for your call within 100 metres of your house, giving you great savings if you wish to use your Xperia X8 as a housephone.
Weekend and Evening packages are also available, allowing users to get cheaper and longer calls and messages at these times. Finally insurance for your Xperia X8 will cost you 8 per month.
