Tesco

Why is this cold?

Possibly because people can't see where it's from and can't be bothered to find out....?

It's not for me (I have Three's One Plan for £15pm, unlimited data inc. tethering and 4G). However, this is still decent for price/whats offered, considering my deal isn't available anymore.

Heat from me.

One plan is £20 now.

tesco mobile is way ahead of all the others best customer services by miles

fantastic customer service understandable operators . Great coverage my whole family use Tesco. Will always recommend them

Great deal! Heat added

Good deal heat added but not good for me as 4g with tesco on iphone 5 doesn't work

why the cold votes? Got this tonight, this is a great deal for £15. Im currently on tesco ive had no problems whatsoever!! hot hot hot

@miss87 pl can you tell your experience using data (3G and 4G) between 6pm to 10pm peak time on your new sim. I am interested to know if they can give better speeds than O2 or giffgaff.

This is a good deal, where you do not want unlimited 4G data or tethering. Voted Hot. The only other real 4G option offering 3GB for more is the One Plan on 3, but that is £20 a month

is tethering allowed ?

MuhammadEi

is tethering allowed ?


Yes

Can you use these in tablets or do they have seperate mobile broadband.?

Does it not say 3G? Where do I find the 4G?

Hot btw, and thanks.

Three deal is still better even though it is now £20 as you get all you can eat data and tethering!!

Three has better data coverage in most areas as well. I get hspda (10-20mb) here whereas o2 users don't even get 3G yet.

Swings and roundabouts really. I've just switched from Tesco Mobile to Three, and while I'm pleased with the speeds I get outdoors, I tend to get a much poorer signal indoors everywhere I go. I barely get a signal at work with Three whereas I got a great signal with Tesco Mobile on O2's network.
That said, I live in Manchester and I get 46mb 4G download speeds with Three, so can't complain at that!

The best recommendation is to use a coverage checker, because you can never base signal issues on someone else's experience!

Out of interest, why do people keep mentioning Customer Service from mobile providers?

In all the years I've had mobiles/contracts, other than initial switch between providers or checking when contract up for renewal, I've never had to speak to their Customer Service

Wish all the networks would hurry up & rollout 4G in Derby! Currently only EE I think who are a rip off

I got One Plan by Three SIM only about a month ago for £15 a month. Not sure if it has indeed gone up to £20 a month now but for that I get:

2000 minutes
5000 texts
All you can eat Internet
Free 4G when available
Usual allowance in several countries including the USA, Italy, Australia and Hong Kong (Handy for holidays).
Unlimited 3 to 3 minutes

This is however a pretty good deal.

Cold In my view sorry

Im with Giffgaff where there is no customer service whatsoever. HAHAHAHAHA. But if I have a question, I just pop it onto the online forums and I get about 10 replies within a couple of minutes, from which I can pick and choose my answer. Very helpful. No need to wait in the queues to answer my call when other networks keep you on hold. Im paying £10 a month for 500 mins, unlimited texts and 1GB data. Also, unlimited giffgaff calls and free 0800 calls. No contract.

Giffgaff also runs on the o2 network so reception is great. They will start 4G from next month.

My wife and daughter are on Tesco and can't fault it, I'll be switching from crappy T Mobile when my contract ends in a few months and these SIMO deals look great :-)

Tesco 4G is great in Stockport/Manchester on my iPhone 5s.

Just ran a test 31.65 Mbps download speed and 21.58 Mbps upload with 51ms ping.

Tethering does not work on iphone from Tesco mobile and 4G wont work with iphone 5

Hot but the one plan from 3 is still the best deal and despite what people keep saying it does include tethering.

I use to be with 3, and their indoor reception was terrible and Im in London! When I was at home, or even when I walked into a shop or Tescos, I would only have 1 bar or no service at all. After a month I had enough and I switched network. But if you use your phone mainly outdoors, then 3 would be great.

While this is true, repeating your phone and sim number to someone proclaiming to be called Stuart with a thick Indian accent is excruciatingly painful and infuriating.

Tesco Mobile's online chat support is not UK based, I'm pretty sure of that. I'm guessing their telephone support is.
Worth remembering (and this goes for most networks) if you call to make a change or something and the call centre says no eg changing the tariff down etc its worth giving the online chat a try as often you're dealing with a foreign operation and they don't seem to have the same level of jobsworths.

Great customer service but need unlimited data like 3. Can't have everything I suppse

Me too. However for some people, they also want to be spoon-fed on how every feature or option works on their phone and then talked through it all verbally, or complain about why they have got a huge bill when they have used 5gb of data on a 1gb contract or why tethering is blocked on a non tethering contract etc etc. For these people its far easier and natural to pick up the phone and whinge at someone rather than use a bit of common sense and do either or all of the following

(a) Read your phones' instructions

(b) Google the problem to find one of 100's of forums about phones and android / windows where the problem has already been discussed and a resolution has been found.

(c) See if any network or service issue is national or on a large scale by reading user forums or places like Digital Spy

(d) Read your contact to see if you have exceeded any allowance or used any service which is chargeable or not included in your contract.

Doing these basic things will probably reduce the calls to call centres by a notable percentage. I suspect many questions are along the lines of "How do I turn 3G on" or "How do I update my phone software to use 4G" or "How do I record a voicemail greeting" and other basic stuff which a 10 second Google search will normally produce answers for. But if they want to sit in a call centre queue and waste twenty minutes of their lives then good luck to them.

Try talking to o2 when your local phone mast is down for 2 weeks. Useless. Three's customer service is in another country and I think they are actually better (everytime I've rang them anyway).

You can get it on a 1month sim only if you get the 12.50 one with 2gb data and then add 1gb for 2.50 making is £15 a month if your not worried about lower minutes. And just spoke to someone at tesco and tethering is allowed!

Why do people keep on mentioning how good the 3 offer is when it is NOT on offer anymore?!

The closest to this is the Vigin VIP SIM with unlimited everything for £15 but not tethering.Oh and it is on a monthly contract not a 12-month one.

Just spoke to someone at Tesco too, and they said tethering is allowed but only on android phones. It is not allowed on iPhones.

Wasn't GiffGaff down for a week last year? I could never risk joining them if that's the case. Fine if it's a backup phone but I would rather spend slightly more and stick with the main Network provider. Also if O2 are busy then GiffGaff suffers as a result.

Im not sure I just joined Giffgaff a couple of weeks ago. So far no problems at all.

"Also if O2 are busy then GiffGaff suffers as a result." .... this would also apply to Tesco as they too run on the o2 network.
