Sky (Sky Broadband, Sky TV) today announced that its Sky Mobile service, an O2-powered Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) (VMO2), has reached the milestone of 3 million customers and is now “The UK’s fastest growing mobile phone provider“.
On the surface, Sky Mobile’s plans may not look as attractive as those of some other operators, and it lacks an unlimited data plan. But they make up for it in other areas. For example, there is the obligation not to make any price increases in the middle of the contract and the flexibility to change your plan whenever you like.Read:Pete Lau teases a OnePlus foldable phone’s hinge mechanism
Customers can also transfer any data they don’t use and store it in a piggy bank for up to 3 years with the option to use it later, share it with family and friends, or exchange it for rewards. According to Sky Mobile, Brits have on average 44% of their data left at the end of each month and so can save an average of £7 per person per month with the operator, given their ability to carry back up data.
Paul Sweeney, Managing Director at Sky Mobile, said:
“At a time when we are all trying to relieve financial stress, it is more important than ever to ensure that your mobile phone contract provides good value. We must all check our contracts to ensure that our mobile service provider gives us the flexibility to evolve according to our needs.”Read:Google brought back Duo (kind of) because its Meet transition is so confusing
