UK phone operator Tesco Mobile will not be charging its 4G customers any more than it charges customers on 3G contracts, it announced today.

While many of the larger operators – EE, Vodafone and O2 – all charge customers on a 4G tariff around £5 per month more than those on equivalent 3G tariffs, Tesco Mobile (an MVNO that is actually underpinned by O2’s network) has decided not to charge anything extra at all, making it one of only two in the country – the other being Three.

Available to customers on Pay Monthly and SIM-only tariffs, plans start from £7.50 on the latter and come with no ongoing commitment. At that level, you’ll get 250 minutes, 5000 texts and 500MB of data. Naturally, with 4G speeds at your disposal, you could well burn through that amount quite quickly – plans with higher data usage limits are also available. The operator said that “in the coming weeks” it will launch 4G data bundles for pay-as-you-go users.
