It’s quite expensive

It’s quite expensive. What sets them apart really apart from getting on the social responsibility trend?

Whats masts do they use? They don’t give this information at all as far as i can tell? This would be important as they don’t have their own masts and there’s only one mast here that gives me signal, so without wifi calling it would be useless to me if there not on the right masts.

Do they offer 4g? 5g? visual voicemail? wifi calling? tethering?

Not trying to burn down a new thing, but there’s lots of questions to answer still i think.

Looks like they’ll be using more than one network somehow

Honest uses more masts than any single UK mobile network.

They are promising EU roaming forever, and as far as I know, the only U.K. network to do this is Three :man_shrugging:

They seem to be advertising the Ofcom mandated text-to-switch service as a feature of themselves. They’ve even stuck their own marketing name on it, “QuickSwitch”. :sweat_smile:

Everyone does this, its not really an issue, but obviously its not a unique selling feature.

Nor is the EU roaming ‘forever’ for example, forever is just another selling word. They’ll offer it so long as its viable. If its not viable, they’ll remove it or increase prices. Probably the latter. Everyone offers EU roaming and international roaming so long as you continue to pay them enough.

They are. Or they must be, I assume EE and Vodafone for them to get the increased coverage, but that would come with increased cost i would imagine, possibly quite significant costs unless they’re only paying for access to specific towers.

But without knowing which its currently a non-starter for me at least.

It’s not a good start on the honesty front. :sweat_smile:

If you go to their page for business users (https://business.honestmobile.co.uk/), it has the EE and O2 logos. Could be a using both of these providers?

Also the price might confirm this kind of setup, as if you look up any multi network setup they usually have quite expensive plans.

They have updated the faqs - it looks to be Three as their main provider and then EE and O2 as auxiliary suppliers. You need a Bolton to use them though.

Here’s one:

Wait. What? Not that sort?

Oh, a bolt-on…

I’m presuming that comes at a cost so the main benefit they’re marketing— the best network coverage—isn’t included in the standard product? :thinking:

Honestly. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:
