What are the advantages of a Tesco Mobile SIM only deal?
If you’ve paid off your phone and are still happy with your handset, you’ll save money by switching to a SIM-only deal. The advantages of switching to a SIM-only deal include:
- You can keep your existing phone
- SIM-only plans are cheaper
- It’s flexible, with no contract tie-ins
- It’s a good way to check how a new network performs without locking into a 2-year deal
Sometimes it’s cheaper to buy your phone outright and then go for a SIM-only deal, especially if you don’t mind buying a refurbished phone.
What is an MVNO?
An MVNO uses an established network to provide its customers with a mobile service. Tesco is the biggest MVNO in Ireland and uses the Three network to power its mobile service.
What is a SIM-only plan?
A SIM-only plan allows you to just pay for data, calls and texts. When you sign up you’ll get a SIM card with an allocation of data, texts and minutes, but the deal won’t include a phone.
SIM-only plans are generally cheaper and will save you money if you already have a phone you are happy with.
