Why choose a Tesco Mobile phone contract?
Tesco Mobile has partnered with O2 to offer 5G, which means it has the might of O2’s network behind it. That includes a whole lot of infrastructure and spectrum, and ensures that Tesco Mobile’s 5G coverage should rapidly grow. So if you don’t have Tesco Mobile 5G where you are now, you might not have to wait long for it.
Tesco Mobile also sells some of the best 5G phones available, so you can get a top all-round mobile experience.
And with lower prices than many networks, Tesco Mobile is also one of the more affordable options for a 5G phone contract. But that doesn’t mean your allowances are limited, as you can get plans with unlimited data.
Plus, you can choose a contract of 12, 18, 24, 30 or 36 months, making it a lot more customisable and flexible than most networks, which tend to just lock you in for 24 months. You can also change your data allowance once a month if you want (raising or lowering it and adjusting the cost accordingly), and you’re free to upgrade at any time, just by paying off the remaining cost of your handset.
Check Tesco Mobile coverage
Tesco Mobile puts low costs over unnecessary extras, which means you can save money for the things you actually want.
That extends to some of the few extras the network does offer. For example, if you have a Tesco Clubcard then you can get 1 point per £1 you spend with Tesco Mobile, and when using your Clubcard vouchers on Tesco Mobile they’re worth double.
Tesco Mobile lets you roam across 48 European destinations at no extra cost, so you can use your allowances as normal.
Tesco Mobile allows tethering and the only limit is your data allowance, so you can get other devices online using your phone’s network when there’s no Wi-Fi available, and if you’re in a 5G area then the speeds might also be faster than Wi-Fi.
How can I keep my number when switching?
To keep your number you just need to give Tesco Mobile your PAC code and tell it the number you want to keep.
To get your PAC code, just text ‘PAC’ to 65075 from your current phone, then enter it while placing your order.
If you already have your Tesco Mobile phone and still want to keep your number, then you can text PORT to 23424 from your new phone/number, and follow the instructions. Note that you’ll still need your PAC code for this, and must not have closed your account with your old network.
