Pay As You Go Sim Cards
Students in the UK usually prefer to opt for pay as you go sim deals which have attractive and reasonable monthly bundles. You have a variety of vendors to choose from which offer similar packages at competitive prices. EE, O2, Three and Vodafone are the main network providers which have their own sim services but also sub channel their networks to other sim providers which have cheaper customised deals. Companies like Lyka, Libera and Giff Gaff are known to be cheaper options for students opting for sim only deals. Lyka and Libera offer cheap international calling rates with unlimited local calls, 6 to 10 gb data for £10 – £15 a month. It is advisable to look through different deals and purchase the bundles as per your requirement. In the UK you are not required to provide your identity details to purchase a sim card which spares you from the hassle of any paperwork to get a sim card registered. Most of the sim cards sold are active and can be used asa you pop it in your mobile phones. They can be easily topped up from the websites or going to a local departmental or off licence /grocery store.
All Back2study registered students are provided with active sim cards before they fly out which makes it easier for them to communicate with the family or coordinate for the local commute as they land in the UK.
Monthly Phone Contracts:
The UK offers attractive monthly contracts where you can have the latest mobile phones on monthly instalments which also include sim cards with data and unlimited calling. The monthly cost may vary from £20 to £50 based on the chosen mobile and amount of data you opt for. Usually students are not eligible for the monthly contracts while they are new in the country as their credit history is not built. They may become eligible in 6 to 8 months after they have their bank accounts opened.
