Who uses Vodafone's network?

26th April 2024

Vodafone Network

VOXI, Asda Mobile, Lebara, 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.

Read on below for a more detailed overview of each of these Vodafone MVNOs.

1. VOXI

Great for social media, music, and video addicts! 

Voxi Logo

 

VOXI is owned and operated by Vodafone itself. So why has the company set up a second network? Because this one is aimed primarily at younger users by offering unlimited 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, plus it has an unlimited data plan, and many plans also come with unlimited video, letting you stream content from TikTok, YouTube, Prime Video, Netflix, and My5 without it coming out of your data allowance (though of course you still need a subscription to the services where relevant).

Many plans also include unlimited music streaming from Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Tidal, Deezer, Napster, and Primordial. Again though, subscriptions to these services aren’t included.

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 use Wi-Fi Calling and 4G Calling.

The main downsides to VOXI include limited plan types, and the fact that roaming isn’t free.

2. Lebara

Great for international callers!

Lebara Mobile

Lebara 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 ones with unlimited data, plus it offers Pay As You Go, and you can use any of your data to tether. Lebara also lets you roam across much of Europe at no extra cost, and you can even roam in India, though other than India you can’t roam further afield for free, despite its international focus.

3. Asda Mobile

Great for affordable 5G!

Asda Mobile

Asda Mobile is another network that runs on Vodafone, so you can enjoy coverage in all the same places as Vodafone if you’re an Asda Mobile customer.

The network is in many ways quite basic, offering a range of competitively priced, 12 and 24-month SIM Only plans, along with a Pay As You Go service. It doesn’t sell any phones on contract (though you can buy them outright or spread the cost), but it does offer 5G on most plans, and you can also get unlimited data.

Basics like tethering and inclusive roaming across much of Europe are also included with all Asda Mobile plans.

4. 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 also tether, and roam across much of Europe at no extra cost, and there’s also 5G. 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.
