Tips on reducing your phone bill
We know that our customers spend a lot of money on mobile phone bills. That's why we would like to help you understand ways in which you could be more savvy with your mobile tariff and maybe help you save some money where you can.
Check your monthly data usage
Research released from Citizens Advice in 2019 found that 71% of SIM-only plan customers overpay for the data that they don't use. Research also found that customers could save approximately £63 per year by switching to a cheaper deal. Why not check out if you're overpaying for unused data?
Your plan could be altered next month and save you money.
You could find cheaper deals online
Customers who purchase a mobile contract in store were found to waste 4.2GB on average, whilst those that buy online only waste 2.6GB according to research done by Citizens Advice.
