Mobile provider The People’s Operator (TPO Mobile), which piggybacks off EE’s Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) platform, has launched its first UK 4G SIM-Only tariff that for just £6.99 a month will give subscribers 2GB of data, 600 minutes and unlimited texts (30 day contract).
The chances are that many of you won’t have heard about TPO before, even though they’ve been around since 2012. The operator doesn’t put much money into advertising themselves and they also direct 10% of what you spend on their service to a good cause of your choice.
Mark Epstein, TPO CEO and co-founder, said:
“I’m really excited about the introduction of our first UK 4G plan. This is another important milestone on our journey to help people use their mobile to make a big difference. Now, even more people can save when they switch to TPO and, at the same time, support a cause they care about.”
The new 4G tariff appears to undercut most or all of their rivals, which begs the question of whether or not it’s sustainable over the longer term or will instead be quietly removed further down the road (perhaps once they’ve attracted enough customers). At present this is TPO Mobile’s only 4G plan, although they do plan to launch several more during July 2016.
However it’s worth pointing out that TPO does not support
Tethering on their plans, so you can’t officially turn your Smartphone into a WiFi hotspot and use the 2GB of data like a home broadband connection. On top of that the operator does not set a strict cap, so if you go over the 2GB data allowance then you could start paying 3p per MegaByte without even realising it.
The new tariff is currently only available to new customers, but this will change in July 2016 when more options are introduced.
