Now Mobile – new network offers cheap international calls

1000image002thumb.jpgThere’s a new contender in the field of mobile phone networks and it’s pretty cheap. Now Mobile are just launching and with a sim-only Pay As You Go model hope to undercut the more traditional networks especially in the field of international calls.

Their pitch: “Now Mobile offers competitive rates with no hidden charges and a straight forward, high quality network.”

Now Mobile puts you in control by offering no which mean you can be sure how much you will be billed for each month and texting you the balance due.

Though it is Pay As You Go, it does also offer internet access and multimedia messaging.

Back to the bread and butter. As we mentioned these guys target international calls and have identified their key international call destinations as Pakistan, Nigeria and Bangladesh. This puts them in comparision with brands like Lyca Mobile and Lebara more than Orange or O2.

This is a table of price comparisons offered by them. They made two mistakes about their competitors’ prices, both on the call tarriffs to Pakistan. I’ve corrected them…

Lebara prices here

Of course, you could just use free international calls on Skype or any VOIP provider, but not everyone will have an internet connection.

UPDATE:
from Lebara: I wanted to contact you regarding one of the Lebara Mobile rates mentioned in the comparison table. As you’ll see from the Lebara site, the current rates for calling a landline / mobile in Pakistan is actually 7p a min (http://www.lebara-mobile.co.uk/en/internationaltariffs.php)

    Haha this is funny. Tech Digest couldn’t be bothered to create a table, and you too, only you just got out your MS Paint and drew a big black line over the offending (ie wrong) rates.

    It would’ve taken you 5 minutes to create a proper table. Might’ve even got you a bit extra Google juice to bump up your advertising rates.

    When are you going to get mobile digest back, so you can copy and paste to that?

      MVNO Daddy get your facts right first lol… Lebara Owened Globalcell Which went bust 6 weeks so did you ask yourself this question if lebara is so huge why would they do that?? Gloablcell was registered under the owners of lebara and coming to 2nd biggest after Lebara i.e Lyca mobile they owe orange around 16 million just because you work for one of these companies doesn’t mean your the real daddy to know everything.

      Now Mobile make credit disappear. One day I have £12.50 in my account. I dont make any calls. Next day only £0.17 left. Customer service is in India where she cant speak english and cannot explain my missing credit and not interested. 100% fraud.

    It’s funny the owner of this site favours the Lebara. He/she even deleted the most recent post here of a user telling his very good experience on Now Mobile and his horrible experiences on both Lycamobile and Lebara.

    Also, the call rate to Pakistan is not updated. Now Mobile has now the cheapest at 1p/min to landline and 5p/min to mobile.
