Tesco Mobile drops 4G LTE charges for contract customers

By James Richardson on 30 Jan 2014 11:33 am EST

The word on the street is that Tesco Mobile (who run off the O2 network) in the UK are doing away with any additional charges for using their 4G services. The good news for us folk on team BlackBerry is that if you are in the market for a new device, Tesco sell the BlackBerry Q5 on contract. Alternatively, if you own any unlocked BlackBerry 10 handset you can stick in a Tesco SIM and you'll be good to go. The BlackBerry Q5 is of course 4G enabled so if you are within a 4G coverage area it may be worth considering. 

Tesco are offering the BlackBerry Q5 on contract from £19 per month on a 24 month deal, with no up-front cost - although that plan only gives you 500mb of data. They do have a further three options of 1,2 & 3GB of data with a max cost of £29 per month for the top package, which will also net you 3000 minutes and 5000 SMS - not bad. 

If you go down the SIM only route then there are a whopping 14 tariffs to choose from, both 30 day and 12 month - and they are pretty darn reasonable. 

Head on over to Tesco Mobile for all the deals

I'm with Tesco...a one month rolling deal which means I can swap and change tariffs each month. Brilliant service.

I need to haunt my Tesco mobile mates on Twitter to din don't more about this :)

Considering a number of everyday Tesco Customers, their network seems to have the biggest market perspectives to develop in the UK. Obviously they waste a lot of this potential because of one 'everyday' brand for all, but it doesn't change the fact Tesco Mobile keeps power round the corner... :)

I am on 3 UK pay and go and when they have 4g in my area I will get unlimited 4g data for £15 a month.

I'm with tesco had the curve deal at 15 pounds for 750 mins 500mgbs and 5000 texts. My sim went from original cheap curve to 9360 then bought unlocked Q5 ( brilliant phone) and now the sim is in a Z10. Luckily i have BT business b band so i can jump off anyone's BT router which gives me Wi Fi pretty much anywhere. My only gripe with tesco is WHERE IS 10.2.1. Free 4g great but 500mgbs will be used up in minute's i used whole months data on first day with Q5.

Still No 10.2.1 upgrade AAAArgh! On O2 via Tesco! C'mon tesco get your finger out. The last upgrade in October was fine on my Q5 but my Z10 didn't get it until December!.Two whole months late, apart from the frustration of waiting for updates i must admit i am very happy with tesco, reception is far better than my last network provider orange and I get a far far better deal for less than half the price. I would definitely recommend tesco mobile sims and put them in your own phonrs.
