Choosing the best mobile deal
Increased competition in the mobile sector has led to more choice and better deals for millions of phone customers.
But with so much choice available, how do you work out which is the best deal for you?
Ofcom’s guide on how to get the best mobile deal provides helpful tips on what you should ask before making a decision – such as whether there are any additional costs and the length of contract.

It also explains the differences between pay-as-you-go and contract deals, as well as looking at issues such as using your phone abroad and keeping your number when switching provider.
However, if you’re thinking of switching to a different mobile phone provider, don’t assume that you’ll automatically enjoy the same coverage.

So, just because you enjoy a strong signal with your current provider doesn’t mean that a competitor will necessarily provide the same coverage.
This Ofcom guide explains the practical steps you can take to maximise your mobile coverage and ensure you’re not left without a signal.
