Tesco Mobile



......... a  mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) in the United Kingdom, its the mobile branch of Tesco plc, a British multinational grocery and general retailer with over half a million employees. It also operates in Hungary, Ireland, Slovakia, and Czech Republic.  Tesco uses the O2 network as its carrier but in Hungary, the network operator is Vodafone.


Tesco Mobile one of the cheapest networks........



It is the first supermarket to provide mobile services to the market. Network services supported in the UK are calls, data, and texts including, Voicemail and Call Waiting.



Tesco Mobile launched 4G service for Pay Monthly and Sim Only users at no extra cost, On 30 January 2014, extending the service to Pay As You Go customers in the same year. You can get Clubcard points when you use a Tesco Mobile handset.

Download information like videos, maps, photographs and music, more quickly than with 3G. So it nice to know that Tesco SIM-only provide a set of 4G data allowances, from 500MB up to a massive 8GB.


As we know that Tesco Mobile uses O2’s 4G network, so may not be accessible to everyone so phoneismobile recommends that you use the Tesco Mobile coverage checker, and assuming that you know why and what tariff is best for you, just before you buy.


However positively looking at it, Tesco Mobile don’t have unlimited data plans, not even unlimited minutes or texts either, data allowances are from 500MB up to a massive 8GB this range can cater to just about all kinds of data users and the minutes and text are up to 5000 with the ability to buy add-ons for data, minutes and text. Sometimes the snag can be a jewel in the crown, suffice to say that Tesco plans have…

Tesco Mobile - No nasty surprise bills


…an opt-in capping option to stop your bills getting too far beyond your control, surely, we must monitor our usage and take responsibility and all that, but it should not be allowed for users to run up huge bills, without some kind intervention.



We are sure that everybody hates getting nasty unexpected surprised phone bills, but with Tesco Mobile phones opt-in capping option you can terminate such devastating shocks from ever happening by simply signing up to the capped service, which lets you limit the amount of calls, text, and data that you can make on your mobile……..in other words you are in the driving sit, full management control over your bill, with in built flexibility so pick the right tariff that mirrors your daily use, decide on a safety buffer and then peace of mind is installed its innovative by Tesco, in short you will not go over your bill cap once it is set.



Tesco Mobile always let you know when you’re getting close to your allowance with text alerts, and help you manage your usage? (in the same way Credit Card companies flag a card if they observe an out of the ordinary purchase) prevention is better than a cure, so the bottom line is the opt-in cap prevents all users from unknowingly going over the limit and incurring additional higher fees, which can add up to quite a shocking amount.



These opt-in caps are different from the various tariff limits; this will simply not charge you more if you exceed certain levels of usage.

You may or not like… ….Restrictive data allowances

Ok sure Tesco Mobile tariffs are data capped, highest data limit provided on a pay-monthly deals is 8GB, and rightly so, as this is enough to download quite a lot of data so you’ll not be limited in what you do online as you can buy data bundle add-ons.


Is Tesco Mobile 4G Coverage available everywhere?

4G may only be available in more urban areas than most, the thing is, if you're outside the 4G range, you’re taken down to 3G. Yes you can still get online, but downloads and uploads will not be as fast as 4G.
