We’ll take a look at the different plans each network offers, the average costs of those plans, and the included features. So whether you’re looking for a cheap deal with lots of data or a plan that includes unlimited calls and texts, we’ve got you covered!
First, a bit of background:
All three mobile providers are UK-based, with Three and Tesco Mobile being part of larger companies (Three is owned by Hutchison Whampoa and Tesco Mobile is, well, Tesco). VOXI is a subsidiary of Vodafone.
All three networks have good nationwide coverage, with Three boasting the best coverage in rural areas thanks to their use of both traditional mobile masts and their own network of “mini masts” (also known as femtocells or microcells). VOXI’s coverage is the second-best, while Tesco Mobile comes in third. All three networks offer good deals on both pay monthly and pay-as-you-go plans.
What are the differences?
Tesco Mobile and VOXI have a selection from more mainstream and popular brands such as Apple and Samsung, while Three has a wider selection from brands like Xiaomi, OnePlus, and OPPO.
VOXI is the only one that features the option to get refurbished phones for a lower price.
Three’s new customers get a pre-paid MasterCard with 75 to 200 pounds, depending on the plan you choose.
Tesco Mobile and VOXI have the option to choose one payment upfront for the phone, and with Tesco Mobile, you can also choose between 12 to 36 monthly payments.
Only with VOXI you can change or exit a plan without a penalty at any time you want, thanks to their contract-free plans.
When comparing every individual plan from every brand versus its direct competitors, you’ll find that VOXI is the priciest but provides the best value with the endless social media and video data. Three is the cheapest out of the bunch and has a long contract of 24 months, and Tesco Mobile comes around the mid-point at both contract and price.
With VOXI, if you’re traveling to or from one of our European destinations, you’ll need a European Roaming Pass. These are available for a small price for every day of use. A fair use policy of 20GB applies to data while roaming in Europe.
Tesco Mobile offers free roaming in 47 European destinations as well as a selection of other countries worldwide.
If you’re on Three, the story is similar, with a small price every day, depending on how long is your trip. There’s also a fair use policy of 12GB for data.
Three offers a go Binge service that allows you to use certain apps without it affecting your data allowance, like Disney+.
Three offers a wide variety of plans, with something to suit everyone’s needs. They have both pay monthly and pay-as-you-go options, as well as a selection of SIM-only deals.
Tesco Mobile offers a wide variety of pay monthly and pay-as-you-go plans, as well as a selection of SIM-only deals. They also have a “Clubcard” deal that gives you extra points for every pound you spend on your bill.
VOXI has a smaller selection of plans, but they offer unlimited data on all social media use for apps like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and more, as well as free data for video streaming on some plans.
So, which network is the best for you?
It depends on what you’re looking for. If you want a cheap deal with lots of data, Three is the way to go. You can get from them a great bargain that will last you a long time without needing to worry about it.
If you want to choose how to space your payment for the phone and for how long, Tesco Mobile is a good option. And if you want a plan with unlimited social media and video streaming, VOXI is the best choice. this will best benefit young users who hang out a lot on social media and will actually make use of it.
