I have been looking for a good pay as you go or SIM-only deal to use in my secondary device. Since owning a Dev Alpha C last year, I've had two BBIDs and figured I might as well make use of it and carry another device on me. It sure makes it great for showcasing the awesome features of BlackBerry 10 when out and about.
While looking around for some deals, I thought I’d check out some offered by MVNOs (mobile virtual network operator) in the U.K. I came across pretty good one from a carrier we haven’t really covered here yet - The People’s Operator. I first came across this MVNO carrier back in November 2012. They didn’t offer BIS at the time (still don't) and really didn’t offer much in terms of data, so I gave them a pass. Looking at them now they’re offering a pretty sweet SIM-only deal.
For £14.99 ($25) a month you get unlimited calls, text and data (with a fair usage policy) on a 30-day rolling contract. For the same price on Three, you get 2000 mins, 5000 texts and unlimited data - though this is on a 12 month contract. And with another MVNO, giffgaff, you can get 500 mins, unlimited text and data for £15 each month.
What makes TPO different is their mission. They’re a carrier that wants to give back. 10 percent of what you spend on the carrier goes to charity. A charity of your choice. If the charity you want the money to go to isn’t listed, you can nominate one to be added to the growing list.
TPO piggybacks on the EE network but only offer 3G plans. If you’re looking for a new plan and love to give to charity, then stop by TPO and check them out. Their unlimited bundle offer price will end February 28th.
