“4G for just 20p a day is quite remarkable when you think the first 4G tariff was around £31 a month three years ago and we’ve created a 4G handset and tariff combination that’s a fifth of that cost, the cheapest we’ve ever had,” said John Coleman, director of Pay Monthly at Carphone Warehouse.
While 250MB of data may not be enough to support video streaming for an entire month, you can make do with the offering if you use fixed broadband at home or work for your data consumption. The minutes pack is quite less as well, but for those with minimal calling and data usage needs, the package cost ensures that they do not have to pay too much for services that they won't fully use.
The accompanying handset, the Alcatel Pixi 4, is a decent-looking budget phone featuring moderate specifications like a 5-inch display, 8GB of internal storage, a 5-MP rear camera, a 2-MP front camera, a quad-core processor clocked to 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, a MicroSD slot with a capacity of 32GB and a 2,000 mAh battery. You will be able to pick up a Pixi 4 handset along with the new £6 a month deal without having to pay any upfront cost.
