Lycamobile 4G Lifts Off…
With all the major networks now offering 4G, various MVNO’s such as GiffGaff and Tesco Mobile have started supplying it too. The latest of these is Lycamobile, a company focussed on low cost international calls.
The networks 4G service is live now and will give you 500 minutes, unlimited data and unlimited texts for just £12 per month and it’s available for both new and existing customers. If you’re already on Lycamobile just give the network a call to get switched to the 4G plan.
Lycamobile uses O2 as its operating partner so its 4G coverage is limited by O2’s roll out. Currently that means it’s available to over 19 million people in 16 cities and 160 towns, with 32 percent of the UK population covered in total, however that will grow over time. O2 has pledged to bring 4G to 98% of the UK by the end of 2015 and as O2’s coverage increases so will Lycamobile’s.
So with low prices and no data limits Lycamobile could be quite an appealing option. If you’re wondering why else you might want to choose Lycamobile for your 4G service it really all comes down to its international calling rates. For example you can call India, Nigeria, Poland, Romania, China and Turkey from the UK for just 1p per minute, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for 5p and Ghana for 7p.
You can also get free calls to other Lycamobile users in Europe, the USA and Australia for 30 days every time you top up. So if you have friends and family abroad it’s a handy network to be on.
