Business Mobile Deals Northern Ireland
Fenix Solutions have great value business mobile deals available from the o2 and Vodafone networks. All business communication should be as simple and as straightforward as possible. We like to try and apply that same principle to mobile deals for businesses in N.Ireland.
How To Determine the Mobile Needs of Your Company?
If as a company you are considering paying for company mobiles, then this short guide should really help you out. There are lots of companies in N.Ireland who offer mobile deals, and in truth these may often sound complicated when there is simply no need for that to be the case.
Some NI companies pay for the mobiles that are used in their business, some companies pay for some mobiles in their business and some just do not pay at all for any mobile. That is of course a decision for each individual business owner.
If your business is considering having company owned mobiles, then below we have listed what the important considerations are;
Which Mobile Network is Best for Your NI Business?
This is in our opinion the most important decision. Many businesses simply look at the lowest price and although that is important, having a mobile that works in your general location is by far the most important consideration. We see little sense in paying for a mobile phone that does not work for the individual user.
The key thing to consider is where will the mobile phone actually be used. The location is vital as different networks have different levels of coverage and this can vary quite a lot. If you have a personal mobile then you will most likely be aware of this.
Unlimited Calls and Texts
One thing that has changed for the better is that all of the networks now offer unlimited calls to UK landlines and other mobile networks. That means that end users can make full use of their phone without having to worry about getting any surprising phone bills.
You can get unlimited calls and texts for around £10 a month on a SIM only deal, though there will be no data with that.
How Much Data Does a Business User Really Need?
With unlimited calls and texts provided almost as standard these days, the next important decision is how much data do you really need? Data is sold in Mb and more commonly in Gigabytes. (Gb) For most business users 3 -5 Gb of data will be ideal.
That amount of data allows you to check emails and use your mobile browser for search as and when you need it. It will also allow you to use various "Apps" such as Google Maps etc.
Wifi vs Data
It is important though just to understand the difference between Wifi and actual data usage. Most people will know from using their own personal mobile that their mobile can be connected to a Wifi connection at home.
When that is done, then no mobile data is being used as the mobile is using the home Wifi network.
Most business users can use their home Wifi to connect their business phone. Likewise most business premises will have Broadband and in most cases that will be wireless. If that is the case then anyone with a company mobile can use the Business Wifi to connect their mobile and again they will not be using mobile data.
There are also Wifi spots available in many public areas and in a lot of hotels, cafes, restaurants, airports etc.
Mobile data allowance is only used when not connected to a Wifi network. In this case the mobile phone connects to the 4G network (or 3G if 4G not available). That is when the data allowance is used and ideally each user should have enough data to do their work, and not exceed the allowance.
Exceeding the allowance can be very costly and result in large bills. Good networks will of course have some type of warning in place to alert you when you get close to the maximum of your data being used.
Fenix Recommended Mobile Tariffs - SIM Only Deals
Please note that a SIM only deal is an offer where you receive a SIM card only. That card has been set up with a tariff and the deal does not include any type of mobile handset. You can put this SIM into an unlocked existing mobile phone or into a new unlocked mobile phone.
Here are our 2 main deals and they are available on either the o2 network or the Vodafone network, whichever is your preference.
20 Gb SIM ONLY DEAL
£15 PER MONTH
5 Gb SIM ONLY DEAL
£12.50 PER MONTH
EU Roaming included on both deals shown above
We offer the same deal on either the o2 network or the Vodafone network. The above deal is subject to a 12 month contract.
The reason we offer this deal is that the end user gets unlimited calls to UK landlines and mobiles. They also get a very generous allowance for data so as they don't have to worry about exceeding their monthly data allowance.
Most other companies only offer 24 month or 2-year contracts, but this offer is a 12-month contract, which means a shorter term commitment for your business.
Mobile Deals with Handsets Included
Some companies want a mobile deal that also includes handsets. Almost every user will want to have some form of Smartphone, and these vary a lot in price. The most popular choices are Apple iPhones and Samsung Android phones. The latest version of these phones cost hundreds of pounds.
If you have decided as a business that you are willing to pay for these, then you can either pay for these as a one-off fee or spread the cost of these over the term of the contract. The bottom line is that your company will have to pay for any handsets.
At Fenix we highly recommend that you purchase your handsets wherever you get the best value. You can then add one of our SIM only tariff deals, and then you will have a good value tariff.
If you want us to quote you for a deal that includes tariff and handsets, then please give us a call on the number above, and we will be happy to do that for you.
