A private prepaid phone plan, also known as a pay-as-you-go mobile plan, does not require a credit check or the signing of a binding contract. This means you can enjoy a package that includes SMS, calls and data as you need it.
There are two types of packages: the traditional package – you only pay for what you use and top up when you need to. You are charged by the minute, SMS, and MB of data. This can be expensive if you use your phone a lot.
Pay-as-you-go plans that include a certain amount of SMS, calls and data are more common: you pay a fixed amount of minutes, SMS and data in advance. These packages are much cheaper for those who use their phone more often.
No-commitment ‘pay as you go’ plans have two major advantages: they are generally cheaper and offer real freedom. Unlike traditional subscriptions, you can change your mobile plan whenever you want without having the must to pay the remaining monthly installments. So you can save a lot of money by choosing the best deals for your current needs. On the other hand, if you have a problem with your mobile phone, you will not receive support or a replacement phone.
MVNOs have been an important part of the mobile phone market for some time. This acronym stands for Mobile Virtual Network Operator and states for “mobile virtual operator”. These players can (via a subcontracting agreement) offer their own services at very competitive prices. The disadvantage is that they do not own a network and offer sometimes disadvantaged conditions, es.; low speed when the network is saturated.
Before choosing your package, it is therefore advisable to estimate your consume of SMS, calls and data and to check the coverage of the telephone operator (especially the virtual one) in your territory.
