UK telephone and broadband company TalkTalk has launched a new mobile phone service for its customers. These offers, which build on the company’s existing virtual network agreement with Vodafone UK, are only open to consumers who’ve chosen one of the company’s fixed-line services.
TalkTalk Mobile promises handsets that are completely free and tariffs that start from £5 a month.
Tristia Clarke, Commercial Director of TalkTalk, said “If you look at phone and broadband packages, they’re cheaper now than they were five years ago. TalkTalk led the way in bringing better value to the market and we’re doing it again with our mobile offers, saving customers even more. We want to do in mobile what we did in broadband, and that’s to bring greater competition and choice and offer the best value to our customers.”
Customers can buy online or over the phone, although the data allowance is larger for online purchases.
The ‘small’ price plan from TalkTalk Mobile can be bought with a Samsung Galaxy Y Android-powered smartphone on a two-year minimum-term contract for £5 per month. The online deal offers 100 minutes of calls, 250 text messages and 200MB of data per month.
