Prices from 24 November 2020.

All calls are charged in whole minutes or part thereof and the cost of the call is rounded up to the next 1p.

For chargeable data, the charge starts as soon as the first packet of data is used. You are then allocated 1p worth of data (e.g. 1MB in UK & EU, 0.5MB in USA) to use before the next charge occurs. If any data is used in a 24 hour period there is a minimum charge of 1p.

Text messages consist of 160 characters. Any text exceeding 160 characters may be charged as multiple messages. This is determined by the receiving network (especially if roaming or texting internationally) and unfortunately, we have no control over this.

Picture messages are limited to 300KB. Any pictures over this size may be split into multiple messages.
