Who uses Vodafone's network?

4th May 2020

Vodafone Network

VOXI, Lebara Mobile and Talkmobile are mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) that use the Vodafone network. Being an MVNO means that they piggyback off Vodafone’s network infrastructure to power their services, so you should expect the same level of coverage as you would get on Vodafone itself.

The main advantage of choosing a Vodafone MVNO is that you can often get cheaper plans, and sometimes they come with extras that you can't get on Vodafone itself.

1. VOXI

Great for social media addicts!

VOXI is owned and operated by Vodafone itself. So why has the company set up a second network? Because this one is aimed specifically at younger users by offering endless social media.

That's right, on VOXI you can use Snapchat, Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook Messenger without it coming out of your data allowance.

VOXI also offers 5G, making it one of the first MVNOs to do so. At the time of writing the network only offers one 5G plan, but this comes with unlimited data, which is something else you can’t get on all MVNOs.

Plus, VOXI also lets you change, pause or cancel your plan at any time, and includes unlimited calls and texts on all plans. You can also tether, and you can optionally add endless music or video passes to your plan, which let you use select streaming music and video services without them coming out of your data allowance, though unlike social media these cost extra.

2. Lebara Mobile

Great for international callers!

Lebara Mobile

Lebara Mobile stands out mostly through offering plans that let you make international calls to select countries at no extra cost. That makes it a good choice if you have friends or family abroad that you talk to regularly.

Otherwise it’s a fairly basic network, but it has a range of short-term SIM Only plans, including one with unlimited data, plus Pay As You Go, and you can use any of your data to tether. Of course, like most networks Lebara Mobile also lets you roam across the EU at no extra cost, though despite its international focus you can’t roam further afield.

3. Talkmobile

Great for keeping things simple and affordable!

    

Talkmobile is a simple, straightforward network, which rather than packing in loads of extras aims to keep its plans as affordable as possible.

You can choose between a small number of 30-day and 12-month plans, all of which come with unlimited minutes and texts. So all you’re really choosing is the duration and your data allowance.

You can’t get unlimited data here, or any premium services such as 5G, but you can tether and roam across the EU at no extra cost. But mostly Talkmobile is a network for people who want to use their phone as, well, a phone, and keep costs low in the process.
