Guide to find the right network provider and contract plan

Should you change provider?

Get connected with the latest smartphones on any networkThe cost of monthly mobile phone contracts is continually reducing. Most business tariffs start at £25 + VAT per month. If you're paying more, need more inclusive minutes, improved network coverage or need to upgrade your handsets then switching networks could pay dividends.

Once you've found a new deal, you'll need to obtain a Porting Authority Code (PAC) from your current provider.

Inclusive deals and promotions

View the latest mobile phone deals availableOur phone plans include unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and at least 4GB of data. Most also give you access to more than 20,000 BT Wi-Fi hotspots.

Vodafone is offering these terms together with a free iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S5 for £39.17 per month.

Everything Everywhere (EE) plans start at under £30 per month including unlimited texts and minutes. Our business mobile team handles all contract paperwork and switching. You keep your current telephone number unless otherwise required.

Step by step process for changing supplier

  • Step 1: Know when your contract expires as usually you can only move in the last months of an existing agreement.
  • Step 2: Use a comparison service or knowledgeable broker to compare prices and options of all the telephone operators.
  • Step 3: As all contracts include unlimited texts, voice, and European roaming calls, decide on the data usage you need for high-speed broadband access on the move.
  • Step 4: Choose a new handset or opt for a sim-only deal and use your existing handset.
  • Step 5: Select the network operator that provides fast and reliable 4G in the areas you most visit. These locations likely include your home, office and most visited motorway routes.
  • Step 6: Find a tariff that suits your needs. Some include insurance and replacement handsets.
  • Step 7: Contact your new operator to make the switch.

Although that appears to be a lengthy process, it's prudent to answer each of the questions to exactly match your requirements to the offers available.

Should I sign for a 12 or 24-month contract?

It can be difficult to know where to start if you're searching for new deals. Contracts lengths vary, inclusive minutes and texts vary, and the types of handsets available can be restrictive.

Business users can get short term six or 12-month contracts. More common are 18, 24 or even 36-month contracts.

The longer the term usually means the monthly cost is slightly less but not in all circumstances. Call our specialist mobile team on 0844 472 1567 to find the best deal for your business.

What should you consider when choosing your plan?

What you use your phone for will dictate the type of contract required. Email takes little in data transfer so some of the data limits could be sufficient for everyday usage. If your business uses the phone mainly for voice calls, then choose a tariff with more inclusive minutes. Here are some of the things to check:

  • Consider the network coverage in the places where you and your employees are most likely to be. Network coverage varies greatly outside the major city centres.
  • Ask yourself what the most fundamental elements of a mobile tariff are for you. Is it inclusive minutes, texts, mobile internet browsing or the type of phone you want to use. For example, will your employees need a standard phone or perhaps one that integrates a diary and schedule?
  • Current internet browsing limits are quite small and video creates a large demand on your cap.
  • Check if wireless dongles are included to save the cost to your business.
  • Some tariffs offer free laptop computers if you sign up for a longer term contract although the specifications are generally quite low.
  • Some sites offer certain cash back rewards when you order through them which could discount your plan even further.
  • The fastest and widest 4G network is provided by EE although other providers are investing £billions in this area. If speed is a requirement, then check the EE offers first.

Our advice is to speak with a specialist first. If you require more than ten handsets, then cheaper overall pricing can be negotiated. If you're a sole user, then we can still obtain the lowest prices in the UK.
