Tesco Mobile undercuts Sim-only market with 18-mth contracts

Tuesday 19 May 2015 | 10:06 CET | News
MVNO Tesco Mobile, a venture with O2 UK, has launched two 18-month Sim-only contracts, the first of their kind in the UK. Customers pay GBP 10 a month for 1,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1 GB of 4G data. An extra GBP 2.50 a month will increase their allowance to 1,500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 2 GB of data. Customers benefit from the MVNO's 'Anytime Upgrade' deal, allowing them to buy a new phone before the end of their contract. Digital Spy writes that equivalent deals from EE and O2 UK cost GBP 15.99 a month and GBP 18 a month, respectively, though customers can switch after 12 months.
