PRESS RELEASE

  • The cheapest 4G pay monthly mobile contract around
  • 4G from just £6 a month contract exclusively to iD Mobile

Carphone Warehouse has launched the cheapest ever 4G pay monthly mobile tariff coming in at just 20p a day* - that’s 5p cheaper than some of the nation’s favourite chocolate bars including a Freddo and a Fudge Bar.

The new tariff comes with 250MB data, 150 minutes and 5,000 texts for just £6 a month on a pay monthly contract on iD Mobile’s ShockProof plan with the new Alcatel Pixi 4 and no upfront cost.

With few items costing less than 20p including a second class stamp or packet of Polo mints, Carphone Warehouse customers will be able to snap up this great value deal from today. Not only is this the cheapest 4G pay monthly mobile tariff in the market, iD’s Shockproof plan means customers can cap their monthly spend, perfectly suited for those on a budget.

Not only capable of delivering superfast 4G speeds, the Alcatel Pixi 4 is a stylish smartphone featuring a 5-megapixel front facing camera for those all-important selfies and 8GB of storage. This bright, bold and functional smartphone ticks all the boxes for those on a budget who want great value.

Ten things that are now more expensive than a day on 4G

  1. Freddo
  2. Second class stamp
  3. Polo Mints
  4. Phone box call
  5. An apple
  6. Can of baked beans
  7. The Sun newspaper
  8. Train station loo stop
  9. Box of matches
  10. Taking a bath

John Coleman, director of Pay Monthly at Carphone Warehouse said, “4G for just 20p a day is quite remarkable when you think the first 4G tariff was around £31 a month three years ago and we’ve created a 4G handset and tariff combination that’s a fifth of that cost, the cheapest we’ve ever had.”

 *Tariff is £6 per month working out at 20p per day on an average 30-day month
