Truphone

Truphone

Aimed at the business market, Truphone offers customers the ability to store up to eight international numbers on one card, meaning they can enjoy local rates when abroad, avoiding huge roaming charges. Backed by no less than billionaire Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich, Truphone recently announced an expansion of their services to now cover 66 countries.

The People's Operator

Launched in 2012, The People's Operator (TPO) has the aim of being an 'ethical' mobile network operator, offering customers the option to give 10% of the amount they spend on calls, texts and data (pre-VAT) to a specific charity or community group. Originally launching in London and offering voice, text and data deals, the company announced earlier this year it would be expanding to the US and Europe thanks to new investment and interest, in particular from Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.
