Is Tesco Mobile a legit option for your phone and tablet in 2018?

Tesco Mobile, Talk Mobile, is a virtual network that is actually powered by O2.

The big idea with Tesco Mobile is to offer low prices and excellent value for money.

This is similar to the company’s objectives with its supermarkets.

But because it is a virtual network, there are limitations, though coverage, generally speaking, is pretty good.

Tesco Mobile Coverage

  • 2G: 99%
  • 3G: 98%
  • 4G: 78%

Tesco Mobile 4G Speeds

Because Tesco’s network runs on O2’s, speeds and coverage should be more or less the same.

Though, for some reason, Tesco’s network has slightly less coverage, overall, in the UK.

Tesco Mobile 4G Speeds

O2’s 4G network is excellent, and so too is Tesco’s by proxy.

The company has 99% coverage for 2G, 3G, and 4G across the UK.

On top of this, O2’s coverage also boasts 98% coverage indoors as well , which is pretty significant, as most people tend to use their phones indoors.

The O2 4G network is available in over 16,000 towns and cities in the UK, which include:

Antrim, Bradford, Birmingham, Bournemouth, Bridgend, Brighton, Burnley, Castleford, Coleraine, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Leigh, Liverpool, Livingston, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, London, Macclesfield, Newtownabbey, Nottingham, Nuneaton, Pontypool, Poole, Portsmouth, Reading, St Albans, Sittingbourne, Southampton and Tamworth.

O2 4G Download Speeds

O2 has one of the lowest 4G speeds, according to OpenSignal data. Tesco’s should be exactly the same.

However, O2’s network ranked bottom of the major four with just 15.16Mbps.

EE topped the list with an impressive 29.02Mbps

O2 is very respectable when it comes to network latency, matching EE (almost) with 42.84ms, according to OpenSignal.

O2 4G Speed Test

O2 only managed 14.11Mbps, making it the slowest overall of the UK’s major phone networks.
