    O2 => Tesco - any PAC issues ? 22nd Sep 16 at 4:32 PM
    Hi all,

    Considering moving from O2 to Tescomobile.

    As Tesco runs over O2 network, would this cause me any issues if i want to keep same number ?

    Thanks

    No, they are different companies.

    Technically O2 own part of Tesco mobile. Also, it's worth bearing in mind that O2 have a tier system with their mvno's internet (basically O2 Pay monthly + Business gets Tier 1 priority, O2 Pay as you go + Tesco Pay Monthly/pay as you go gets Tier 2 priory, and Giff Gaff gets Tier 3 priority).
    I'm on Tesco mobile (pay monthly) and still get good 4G speeds where I live, but it gets bad when I hit a bigger town.

    The extra money you pay O2 just pays for the phone support call centre. If you've had a mobile for more than a week you probably know more than the call centre guys.

    What the tier system? It's common knowledge for years now. It may only really effect people in bigger towns and cities.
