This mobile industry moves so fast that it’s almost impossible to chase up with it. Few days back we had the Apple iPhone 4, now we have the iPhone 4S and the the demand for the Apple iPhone 5 is increasing more and more everyday. Apple iPad3 is launching soon with the 3 mobile network making them one of the most demand-able network which can support the 3G capabilities that are needed to get the best performance from Apple iPad3.

Since the technology is advancing so rapidly and almost all the phones manufactured by the leading manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, Nokia, HTC, Sony and others are all smartphones which are designed to speed up the communication channel, get information with a click of a button, engage with social networks, update and keep updated instantly, there is a need for a network that can support these demands.
Before these new price plans being introduced most of the demandable smartphones were not available on the old tariffs and since it was not customer friendly packages, it resulted in the competitors such as T-Mobile, Vodafone and Orange to have a stronger hold on their customers base.
With this new move from old Talk & Text packages to the new Essential, Ultimate and The One Plan packages, this will help customers to choose better price plan that meets their daily requirements and not pay for something which they do not use it.
