Tesco Mobile most recently introduced their unlimited data plans, but if you’re not interested in endless data, alternatively you can become a Tesco Clubcard Plus member, and get double data on all tariffs. Tesco Clubcard Plus members also benefit from special discounts and they can pay their bills with Clubcard points for half the price. Tesco Mobile’s family mobile plans are also a great option to consider as they offer a choice of monthly discounts. And if you want more flexible plans, you can always have a look at giffgaff’s goodybags. Powered by O2, giffgaff is a low-cost MVNO alternative. You can learn more about the network by reading our giffgaff Review.

The carrier also allows you to set a safety buffer, which gives you extra minutes, texts and data, so that you won’t go massively over your monthly tariff.

Tesco Mobile’s 5G coverage is live in 60 cities and towns and the network aims to offer superfast 5G download speeds in 14 more locations before the year ends. Being powered by O2, Tesco Mobile’s 4G Coverage is quite reliable too as the network offers over 99% population coverage and decent landmass coverage.

The carrier tends to slash its prices on a regular basis, but if you’re looking for the best discounts from Tesco Mobile, it happens during the Black Friday sales, and well Black Friday 2020 is quite close. If you want to discover what the network might be cooking for this year’s sales you can read our Tesco Mobile Black Friday Deals article and be prepared in advance for some amazing deals.

Pay Monthly Phones

Tesco Mobile offers both flagship phones and some older handsets from major brands such as Apple, Samsung, Huawei and Nokia. Having said that, the network doesn’t offer much variety.

The network’s ‘Anytime Upgrade Flex’ scheme splits your bill into two, one for your phone and one for your airtime, similar to O2’s Refresh feature. Basically, you can select your monthly phone payments and how long your phone contract will be (12, 18, 24, 30 or 36 months) and your airtime bill will be a 1 month rolling contract. You’re allowed to switch between any Tesco Mobile tariffs, but only once per month. Tesco Mobile’s Anytime Upgrade Flex will also let you upgrade whenever you want.

Besides pay monthly phones, the carrier also proposes pay as you go phones.
