V by Vodafone is a new range of GPS tracking accessories for your person, car or pet.
Huawei quietly launched a new mid-range smartphone and Vodafone will be selling it. Find out more if you’re left wondering as I was.
I don’t often write about tariffs, unless they’re really exceptional. And on the face of it, a plan costing up to £31 a month is anything but exceptional. But Vodafone’s new Pay as you Go 1 plan isn’t for heavy users. It’s for occasional users that may go […]
Visitors to this site, my social media followers and anyone on the various forums I contribute to will know I’ve been an advocate of more affordable phones for some time, along with the many benefits that going down the SIM-only route can bring. Quite recently Simon Rockman contributed […]
This morning I discovered a new plan from Three, offering 100GB (well, 102GB according to the price list) of data per month with an introductory price of £25/month on a 12-month contact, or £29/month on a 1-month rolling contract. Yes, you can already tell what I’m thinking given […]
There’s a real sense of competitiveness in the mobile industry right now, with key players EE and Vodafone working hard to upgrade their networks to add speed and capacity. 4G might still feel relatively new, but there are already many signs of problems affecting every network in many […]
Three launches free “Go Binge” streaming on new Advanced plans, but will this spell the end of truly unlimited data?
I had to think long and hard about how to report this news, as clearly Three is thrilled to be offering free video streaming to users on its new Advanced Plans – starting at 4GB and above. On the face of it, that’s great. Pay for a small […]
The battle between Vodafone and EE is hotting up, with each network rapidly working to enhance their respective networks to offer faster speeds and greater capacity. At this point in time, Three and O2, each with very limited capacity and a desperate need to refarm 3G spectrum to stand […]
Vodafone has revised its calling plans today, with a change to data roaming that now gives users free access to ALL their data when travelling to one of 40 destinations, plus a further 60 countries for a fixed daily fee. In addition, Vodafone is introducing a new flexible upgrade […]
EXCLUSIVE: Rejoice as EE gives customers an early Christmas present. 800MHz 4G goes live November 23 2016
With Christmas looming, it seemed somewhat unlikely that we’d see EE switch on its long awaited 800MHz 4G service until next year now. Or at least that’s what I’ve been telling people for a while. So colour me surprised when I discovered that 800 will be activated this year […]
Last month, OnePlus made the big league by getting the OnePlus 3 sold on the high-street. Today, O2 has announced it will be exclusively stocking the upgraded OnePlus 3T. The phone, which looks essentially identical, has a few key upgrades that include; 3,400mAh battery (a 13% increase). New 128GB […]
In addition to launching new SIM-only plans next month, EE is also revising its mobile broadband 4G plans from 1st November 2016. This applies to Wi-Fi plans (plans sold with or without a dongle or portable hotspot), tablet plans, and EE’s home broadband plans that come with a […]
It’s a good day for consumers, who will soon be able to buy the OnePlus 3 on the high-street. A phone that many people have probably never even heard of. Plenty of bloggers and the tech press have raved about OnePlus since the company launched with the iconic […]
Vodafone has done something great, and most of its customers will never know. That is until they wonder why they’re getting fewer junk calls than before. Thanks to new technology switched on at network level, the days of receiving nuisance calls could be over. Think calls about PPI, […]
I’ve certainly been rather outspoken about the limitations of Three’s Feel at Home scheme for the last year or so, but there is some good news. Next month sees the addition of 24 new destinations where you can enjoy calls, texts and data at no extra cost. These new destinations […]
Having now obtained the prices for the new EE plans launching next week, it’s now possible to look and see whether you should sign up now, or wait. Previously I reported that EE was changing the game with three new tiers, offering up to 40GB [EDIT: It’s actually restricted […]
Whether we’re leaving the EU one day or not, it isn’t slowing the industry from stepping up the competition when it comes to European roaming. This time, it’s the turn of EE to shake things up – big time. Three kicked things off with its 3G-only, heavily throttled, Feel at Home […]
Three has unveiled brand-new Essentials plans. The cynic in me wonders if this is a sign of things to come (namely that one day the current ‘Advanced’ plans may be phased out, or made a lot more expensive), but the optimist hopes it’s just a way to offer […]
From July 14th 2016 O2 is extending its O2 Travel service, which gives fixed-price daily roaming in Europe, to 30 new destinations beyond Europe. This means that the £1.99 daily charge for access to ‘unlimited’* data, 120 minutes of calls and 120 texts in Europe, now covers more […]
You’ve got to admit, the way EE rolled out and tested VoLTE (what it calls, 4G Calling) since last year has been rather unique. But today, it has been made available throughout EE’s 4G network. As an early Christmas present, iPhone users were given a taste of VoLTE […]
