Why you might like The People’s Operator

Do more for your favourite causes

The People’s Operator donate 25% of their profits to good causes through the TPO Foundation helping organisations, local communities and charities make a positive difference to people’s lives. But the good doesn’t stop there. Each month you can choose to direct 10% of your bill to your favourite good cause, at no extra cost to you. 

No credit checks

If you have been rejected by some of the bigger mobile operators because of a poor credit rating then TPO may be the network for you. No credit checks means you’re pretty much guaranteed to be accepted for a mobile contract and making regular monthly payments will help to improve your credit score.

Great coverage

The People’s Operator use EE’s 3G network, the biggest 3G network in the UK, so you’re assured excellent coverage across 99% of the UK population. Use TPO’s coverage checker to check the coverage in your area before you buy. 

Savings are passed on to you

TPO believe in offering affordable mobile plans to their customers and they achieve this by doing away with big offices, expensive advertising campaigns and High Street shops and instead keep their service online only and pass the savings on to their members with low cost plans.

UK-based customer support

Unlike some of the other online-only networks, if you need to get in touch with The People’s Operator you can call their UK customer support team and speak to a human instead of navigating forums and help pages - useful if you're not that familiar with websites.

Why you might not like The People’s Operator

No 4G plans

If you’re looking forward to the super-fast speeds of 4G then you’ll be disappointed as, despite using EE's network, TPO currently they only offer 3G. If it's 4G you want then go for a deal with EE, O2, Three, VodafoneTesco Mobile or giffgaff.

No international roaming plans 

The People’s Operator doesn’t offer any international roaming plans which means you’ll pay standard roaming charges if you plan on using your phone while you’re away. TPO do offer low rates for international calls and roaming but some other networks, including O2, EE, Vodafone and Three, offer roaming add-ons or include international calls free of charge.

 

Not on the High Street 

The People’s Operator aren’t on the High Street which means if you need help you’ll need to be able to get online or telephone their customer support. This isn’t ideal for everyone and if being able to pop in store is your preferred way of resolving problems then go for one of the big mobile operators like EE, Three, O2, or Vodafone.
