Value for Money

With its Pay As You Go mobile broadband, T-Mobile differs from many of the other providers by charging for given time periods, i.e. per day, week or month, rather than for particular data amounts. We feel this charging structure offers good value for money, particularly for light users.

For those wanting a contract, T-Mobile pricing is broadly in line with that of other providers, offering 1GB of data use per month for £10 per month. Once this allowance has been used, the service may be restricted in accordance with T-Mobile's Fair Use Policy but you won't be charged any more (unlike with some other providers).
