  • UK mobile subscribers have probably heard about the mid-contract price increase if they're on Orange or T-Mobile. Tesco have decided they don't think that's fair so Tesco Mobile have confirmed that they are committed to fixing their prices so this sort of thing won't happen to their customers. Tesco Mobile's CMO, Simon Groves said: “We believe it’s only fair to stick to the contract that we make with our customers, and see no reason to change the core tariff price that a customer has signed up to. We’ve never put our Pay-Monthly tariff prices up mid-contract and this Tariff Promise demonstrates our continued commitment to our customers."
