If you’re after a sweet mobile deal, there’s only one thing for it: a flexible SIM-only plan from Candy Telecom. It’s a pretty new mobile provider that specialises in easy-to-understand deals with all the minutes, texts, and data you could ask for. Here’s everything you need to know.

What can I get from Candy Telecom mobile?

You can get a range of SIM-only deals from Candy Telecom. Every plan comes with unlimited calling minutes and texts, but you get to pick how much data allowance you want. Your choices are:

  • Voice Plan - just calls and texts
  • Euro Plan - includes 5GB of data that you can use abroad in Europe as well as at home
  • 2GB Plan
  • 4GB Plan
  • 10GB Plan
  • 20GB Plan

They all work on a 30-day basis, so you can stop, start, and change your plan whenever you want. Watch out though, as there's a £20 cancellation charge if you've been with Candy Telecom for less than a year.

The Euro Plan is a great choice if you visit the EU a lot, but even on a regular plan you can still use your normal allowance when you're abroad. In the EU, that'll cost you £3 per day; and in the rest of the world, £5 per day.

There aren't any contract plans available that include a handset, unfortunately - it's SIM-only all the way.
