How we make money

Our sorting algorithms

We provide various sorting metrics to enable users to find their best deal. These are calculated as follows:

Average Monthly Cost
(Handset Cost + Line Rental x Contract Duration - Cashback) / Contract Duration
(We extrapolate 1 month contracts to 12 months to give a fair comparison)

First Year Cost
(Handset Cost + Line Rental x 12 - Cashback/Contract Duration * 12) / 12

Total Cost
Handset Cost + Line Rental x Contract Duration - Cashback

Monthly Rental
Line Rental

If two packages have the same price and contract length we typically have further sorting metrics in the order of data, minutes and then text allowances.

Out of bundle usage costs may vary depending on, for example, how regularly you use data services or whether additional calls are made to customers on the same network or other networks or to fixed line phones. In all cases we assume that the maximum charges levied by the network operator apply (e.g. you use some additional data every day and any out of bundle calls are made to customers on other mobile networks). This means that the out of bundle usage costs could be lower than we calculate, but are not likely to be higher.

We provide a whole of market comparison (although we do not include every single tariff and do not detail international out of bundle costs). This means we include all those companies that are established players in the mobile market including those that we may not have a direct relationship with.
