Is Talk Mobile good?

A lot of the best deals seem to be on Talk Mobile at the moment, with 12 month contracts. Are they a good network?

Talkmobile are a 'virtual' network, that is they don't actually have any cell towers etc., all the do is buy capacity from one of the 'real' networks. In Talkmobile's case this is the Vodafone network so you can pretty much look for Vodafone coverage etc. and this applies exactly the same to Talkmobile.

Talkmobile's customer service (for that is all you are really dealing with) is pretty variable though. They are part of Carphone Warehouse though so not a fly by night operation, but let's just say you might get what you pay for in terms of support.

you need to check the costs because all the networks have differant offers.
