Big rise in customers taking SIM Only deals

Big rise in customers taking SIM Only dealsEverything seems to cost a lot more than it used to and you’re working twice as hard for half the money. It’s rubbish. Phones are expensive, contracts are long and, if you’re on “certain” networks, the price goes up half-way through. To put it bluntly, we’re all a bit skint.

So, based on some 40,000 sales, are reporting that SIM Only offerings are amongst the 5 best-selling contracts during the past 8 months. Not only that, but sales of these have grown 400% in that period as people look to cut costs and hop between networks. The report also notes that a lot of new handsets are only marginally better than the devices they’re succeeding..

Observers have also suggested that with mobile phones being as technologically innovative as they are today, upgrading to the newest handset no longer offers the same benefits as it did years ago. For instance, there is less incentive for users to upgrade from a Samsung Galaxy S3 to a Samsung Galaxy S4 because there are far fewer dramatic changes between the two devices to make it financially worthwhile for the customer.

Do you agree? Are you about to end your contract deal and go for a SIM Only plan? Let us know.
