I’ve been with Voxi for more than a year, I think they’ve got amazing deals, I pay £10 for 12 Gb with unlimited social media. And it’s no contract. The voxi drops can be really nice sometimes, I got a protein shake bundle for free a few months back (which is usually £20-£30).
I think the competition for mobile contracts is so intense, it comes down to differentiation and secondary features. Zevvle has by far the best app I’ve seen for ab MVNO. And the best CS, though things can always change.
This is such a massive milestone. I work tackling the poverty premium where poor people pay more for goods and services, and this initiative is exactly the type of thing we need to be seeing more of! I’ve never been a massive Vodafone fan, but this is a great move forward.
On the other note, I had a cracking deal with Three after around 13 years with them, then moved to their subsidiary Smarty who I wouldn’t recommend. Now moving probably to O2 as I’ll get a discount through work, making 200GB, unlimited everything else, approx. £12.50 a month. I only ever go SIM only now but will loop in my new iPhone Pro next month or January, depending on when I get it.
Council tax (bottom band covers everything from a bedsit to a four-bed house round me)
Utilities (standing charges are disproportionate for very low usage)
Duty (fixed duty on a bottle of wine means you’re paying far more tax as a share of total cost for a £6 bottle than a £60 bottle)
And on and on
Then out-of-bundle charges…
Giffgaff charges 25p per minute
You can select 1GB and 1SIM with Zevvle for £5 then
Without the unlimited plan, calls and texts between SIMs on the same account are free, otherwise they cost 3p/minute and 3p/message from your cash balance.
For my money, I’d rather go with a provider who’s trying to find the best deal for everyone, even if it’s a little pricier for me personally. It’s the same reason I’m with Zen - no other company can match their approach
