VOXI is primarily a SIM-only provider. However, you can get the latest handsets on VOXI, provided you are prepared to accept the phone being locked to Vodafone and to stay with VOXI for a defined period, then you can pay for the handset separately and in instalments. Here's what else you can expect.
There are actually only four UK mobile networks: Three, O2, Vodafone and EE. Everyone else, and they are numerous, piggybacks onto one of those four networks. You'll find all the info on who piggybacks who a little further down in the similar and alternative providers sections.
VOXI is owned by Vodafone, so as you would expect, it operates on the Vodafone network. Vodafone covers more than 99% of the UK population, and offers 4G data speeds averaging 22.4Mbps, second fastest of the four, with EE the fastest at an average speed of 36.4Mbps. 5G coverage is still mainly in cities and larger towns, but roll-out continues.
There are a standard set of desirable features you should look for on any mobile provider you are considering signing up to.
Until recently, it didn’t matter which network you were on, you could use your phone in EU countries at no extra charge. This changed when the UK left the European Union and providers were again able to charge extra. However, most providers have continued to provide EU roaming at no extra charge. VOXI is one of the providers who still provide EU roaming. If you want to use your phone in other parts of the world beyond Europe, there are different, often expensive rates for doing so, depending on your destination.
There are a couple of things to be aware of when it comes to data roaming. You can use your data in EU countries, but there is a “fair use cap” of 20GB, after which you will be charged at higher rates. Also, data roaming does not include the Endless Social Media feature, so you will use data when using social media abroad.
