Mobile virtual network operator Tesco mobile has just unveiled a £6 tariff, with 100 minutes of calling and unlimited text messages - aimed squarely at those who SMS rather than talk.
The SIM only monthly contract comes in at the reported lowest cost of any tariff in the UK, where the unlimited text messaging will certainly be an attractive proposition for the younger generation along with the value for money
A phone will of course still be needed, as a SIM card is only provided but there is the added benefit of receiving Tesco Clubcard points - seeing as the tariff is linked to that supermarket store.
Tesco mobile is a MVNO running off the back of Telefónica O2 network in the UK, whilst sharing its entire setup in 50/50 deal since Tesco Mobile first launched mid 2005.
The offer does appear to be very good value for a rolling monthly tariff, where even some of the £15 a month deals at over double the cost of Tesco's proposition doesn't offer the same benefits of this new tariff.
