Interesting that the Three combo router + SIM is now subject to price based on location. Starting at £22. I expect that is because of readying for 5G, where I seem to remember for new customers there will be a higher price. The adverts so far have been that all SIMs are 5G ready, at no extra cost when it becomes available.
Which is great for those like me already on the system on 4G, but not a good pricing structure for areas that already have it at the time a new punter joins.
There’s another thought. Does anyone know Smarty’s policy on 5G?
The only snag I can see with Smarty is that their customer service is non existent in the conventional sense (telephone). You have to use web chat or email, telephone isn't an option.
The other element is being a relatively unknown entity you either have to undercut on price or excel in some other quality metric to succeed. So Smarty have to differentiate, and it looks like they are trying to do this on price.
