Seems like they're an own-brand network from Carphone Warehouse, and their pay monthly deals look very cheap. Are they too good to be true? I presume they piggy-back on one of the main networks infrastructure?

Me and my son have both got them. I believe they are part of talktalk. Coverage has been good. I was told they use Vodaphone network :wink:

Good stuff, they say they have a 14 day coverage guarantee so I might give them a shot.

Not part of Talktalk. They have their own network. I used to sell the sim only deals for them. Absolute winker of a boss though. No employers liability insurance didn't give a sh1t about it either.
Deals were ok. But after you had phoned the same person 14 times in a week it was difficult to sell them.

My wife has a contract with them, it seems OK. She's had a few issues but they're all to do with the phone (Galaxy Mini or some such). Coverage always seems OK. I think she has to pay for voicemail though, which is a bit 90s, but the basic package is good, and cheap. :)
