TalkTalk has launched a new smartphone proposition with tariffs starting from as little as £5 per month.
The MVNO, which runs on Vodafone's network, is offering three 24 month plans – small, medium and large. Customers who order online get twice their monthly data allowance. The small plan gives customers 100 minutes, 250 texts, and 100MB of data. The medium plan offers 300 minutes, 3,000 texts and 500MB of data. The large plan provides 1,000 minutes, 3,000 texts and 2GB of data.
Among the handsets on offer are the Samsung Galaxy S III, available from £25 per month, the HTC One X (£25 per month), and the BlackBerry Curve 9320 (£10 per month).
TalkTalk had originally targeted a spring launch for the handset offer, which is only avalable to TalkTalk customers. Commercial director Tristia Clarke said: 'We want to do in mobile what we did in broadband and that’s to bring greater competition and choice and offer the best value to our customers.'
She added: 'If you look at phone and broadband packages, they’re cheaper now than they were five years ago. TalkTalk led the way in bringing better value to the market and we’re doing it again with our mobile offers, saving customers even more.'
