* We tried really hard to understand the costing plans for each of the alternative service providers and are pretty sure we interpreted them correctly, but boy, do they make it complicated! Comparison costs are based on a Monthly contract and we have used any "International Saver" type option they offer to try and show GeoSIM prices against the other networks best prices.
** Assumes Vodafone Passport is used and uses 50 % of inclusive minutes. If Vodafone customer were to have remaining "Inclusive minutes" then savings would be less than shown. We have tried to use realistic usage figures in this example - but it was a challenge figuring it all out.
Many of the providers use Zones and use flat rate costs "to make it easy to know what you're paying". What we noted, was that if you call outside of the Zone, your charges shoot up even higher!
Some providers offer "International Saver" packages. These sometimes cost an additional monthly fee or may be included in a monthly contract if you "opt in". We used the providers "International Saver" option where they offer one, to show you the cheapest rates they offer - Still looks pretty costly to us.....
At GeoSIM we believe in transparency and Plain English. We endeavour to keep our rates simple and straightforward.
No smoke and mirrors
No connection charges
No monthly fees
No minimum usage to qualify for cheaper rates.
What you see, is what you pay. No clawing back of unused call credit, No freebies enticing you in the short term, but charging you in the longer term.
Comparision rates for alternative providers are taken from their respective websites on 23rd February 2007. Every effort has been made to provide a fair and representative comparison, however it is an interpretation of the other networks tarrifs.
