All I'm worried about are their 4G speeds?

Seems to good to be true most capping 4g at 2gb

Is it a Giffgaff beater?

is tethering allowed there ?

Is it a Giffgaff beater?

it's better than what Giffgaff are offering on 4g for sure...

Hope this isn't an early April's fool

Well their 3G speed is quite acceptable, so I guess 4G too will be OK.

Honestly don't get it .. The 12 pound plan is better than all the others in terms of data by miles this has to be a April fools

only fool will order it.

Probably true, and if it's not it will be the hottest 4g deal over here!

Most likely restricted 4G speeds than full on 4G speeds where the big network providers will have top priority. Talk about 2nd class citizens.

perfect timing lol

Tesco Is a mvno and they have had 4g for a while

What network are they using for 4G, O2 or EE? Or even what frequency are they gonna use?

Seems silly to question this deal, it's on the link and is the genuine Lycamobile website. 4G provided through EE. Lycamobile were caught our before making false unlimited claims, so this has to be properly unlimited, our else they're in deep trouble.

I would trust next doors dog to stand its ground more than the ASA

Great price, voted hot.

Check out how many times Virgin were rapped by the ASA before they finally stopped their silly throttling. The ASA has no real power - they can ban adverts, but that's pretty much it.

Guys beware of this mobile network operator!!! coz your friends or family who are with other network providers who have a free allowance to call to any network would incur charges for calling to Lycamobile network. I am with EE and I have 2000 minutes allowance and I hardly use up 500 minutes let alone 2000. so one day I called a friend and I was on the phone for some 20 minutes and few weeks later when the bill came i had a shock of my life. I was charged for the call and I contacted EE to find out the reason for it and I was told that I made a phone call to Lycamobile network which isn't UK based hence y was charged. After a lengthy conversation that I didn't know it being a chargeable call EE agreed to cancel the charges. So I am warning you all, that the offer may seem really good but your friends and family will end up with a surprise bill to pay.


500mins and unlimited 4g for £12
i think they hoping for a mass exodus to lyca to make this pay and then i cant see how they make money, must be a catch somewhere, my nose is a twitching,lol

the ads has no power...
Look at lung cars (a car lease company) that openly mocked the asa, and is still advertising deloreans for sale...

If this is EE could be a good shout for the iPhone 5, as they won't support O2/ Voda 4G

ordered a sim, may switch from gift gaff

Banned

so can you spend just £10 for the first month to try it out as thats £12 credit ?

Their unlimited data is 3GB. Although that is enough for normal use they do fool you calling it unlimited.

The five 07 prefixes here

Are not included in EE bundles.
So how do you ensure your Lycamobile number does not start with one of these?
Also, what if you port your number to Lycamobile?

Good deal- pity the company sucks. They happen to be the biggest corp donor to the Conservative Party, based in Canary Wharf, and pay zero company tax in the UK.

Doubt it is possible - if you got another code, it would likely get added. As for porting in, DON'T without research - I believe the number becomes associated & despite not appearing on the list, everyone will get charged - EVEN IF YOU PORT IT OUT AGAIN. I think that this area is a scandal - are you meant to check the list daily & carry a printout? Two lists if you use two providers? Come on OFFCOM! Needs simplified so that a certain range is used for all non-UK +44 numbers (IOM, CI, etc.).

If you port your number, which looks very simple, surely there wouldn't be any issues with people being charged to ring you? That just wouldnt make any sense. If so, this is a great deal, best available currently.

You got it the wrong way round Its not lyca mobile that we need to beware of, its ee, T-Mobile they are the only networks that charge to make calls to lyca mobile. Despite lyca mobile having a headquarters in UK and using prefix of 07 numbers even using orange and t mobile as the network provider. Vodafone do not charge, o2 do not charge etc Ee= scammers.

It was lycamobile who were accused of charging other providers ahigher disconnection fee than any other provider
