Very good network cover especially in remote countryside and best date deals and flexibility to change monthly plans.


Solid service, good price. I work abroad but keep my UK number and buy a bundle when I'm back in the country.


I get what I pay for and it all works fine. Now the billing issues from the switch to Vodafone network have been sorted, job's a good 'un.


Never had any problems using data or phone calls. Great price for month to month contract. Purchased another Sim for my son as it’s half the price of our Virgin Media contract.
