SIM only deals, to me at least, usually mean one month rolling plans. However, if you want to lock yourself into a longer deal and possibly get even better value for money, you can go for a 12 month plan. Tesco Mobile has today become the UK’s first mobile network lengthen that, and will be offering to 18 month SIM-only tariffs.
The plans being introduced are as follows..
– £10 per month for 1,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1GB data
– £12.50 for 1,500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 2GB data
4G data connectivity is supplied at no extra cost and Tesco will be keeping any handset plan separate to these airtime deals if you go do the Tesco Mobile Anytime Upgrade option. This will let you upgrade your Tesco handset early without an early termination fee or having to pay off your SIM-only plan.
What do you guys reckon? Is £12.50 per month enough to tempt you into a 4G plan with 2GB of data?

TESCO MOBILE INTRODUCES FIRST 18 MONTH SIM ONLY DEALS TO THE UK
Tesco Mobile has become the UK’s first mobile network to introduce a range of 18-month SIM-only tariffs, from just £10 per month.
All the deals come with 4G at no extra cost as standard, Capped Contracts, so that customers can avoid any nasty bill shocks and award-winning customer service.
The network is the first to extend its range of SIM only offerings to include longer terms as an increasing number of consumers turn to SIM deals to get the best value tariffs whilst keeping their handset.
Trials of new SIM offerings clearly showed that customers were happy to commit to longer terms to ensure they get even more value for money.
Simon Groves, Chief Marketing Officer at Tesco Mobile said:
“These data rich deals are available for anyone who is in the market for making savvy mobile choices and are happy with their handset.
“Our customers told us that they are happy to commit to a deal for a longer period of time if it means they don’t have to worry about looking around for the best deal.
“Switching to a SIM-only deal could save these customers hundreds of pounds a year because the cost of a new handset isn’t included in the monthly tariff.”
Two 18 month SIM only tariffs are being introduced today by Tesco Mobile. These are:
· £10 per month for 1,000 minutes, 5,000 texts and 1GB data
· £12.50 for 1,500 minutes, 5,000 texts and 2GB data
Customers who sign up to these 18 month SIM only deals can also opt to have Tesco Mobile’s Anytime Upgrade as part of their deal. This means that they can choose to upgrade their handset before the end of the 18 month term without having to pay off their SIM deal or any early termination fees.
