iPhone 5: UK pay-monthly tariffs compared

Talk is anything but cheap

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

With fanbois eager to pre-order an iPhone 5, networks have started to tout their predictably expensive tariffs so here's a comparison table to highlight what's on offer.

Of course, there are plenty of rates either side of those mentioned below, with varying minutes and data allowances, but in the interests of a fair comparison, we've picked similar price structures from each network.

When it comes to choosing the most suitable deal for you, bear in mind those after a 4G LTE version for when the faster service hits Blighty, will have to sign up with either Three or Everything Everywhere.

If customers conform to the latter firm's sub-brands Orange and T-Mobile, they'll be able to upgrade to an EE 4G plan at a later date, though.

"When 4G launches a compatible plan on EE is required." says Orange. "Charges may apply and you’ll have to agree to a new minimum term on EE".

Hmmm.

Meanwhile, Three customers with an iPhone 5 will get 4G, with no change to their contract, but they'll have to wait until the tail end of next year to do so. As usual, Three's tariffs feature unlimited data thanks to its successful The One Plan, and against other 24 month contracts, certainly look the most inexpensive.

Vodafone's 12 month plans look pretty tasty though, for those keen to end their contract earlier than usual. ®
