Anyone using utility warehouse SIM? Runs on EE with volte and WiFi calling 4g only. £18 a month for unlimited. Not sure if you need an account with them so might try and grab a SIM for a month to check it out.

Switched from Plusnet to 1p Mobile and what a difference! Hitting 250+ mbps on LTE on my (now ancient) iPhone 8. VoLTE and VoWiFi working perfectly.

What I hate most is their website which is a clunky mess and it doesn’t help that they don’t have an app.

Ps. Worth mentioning that if you have a recurring data bundle, you’re exempt from their newly announced obligatory top ups!

1p has full access to the EE network including wifi calling and 5G unlike their other mvno set ups.

Shame there’s no unlimited package, I think it’s 50gb for £15 which isn’t a bad bundle tbf.

Indeed. Was at work today (hospital) and for the first time ever with an EE MVNO, it was connected to B20. (With plusnet, I typically had no service at work)

Interestingly though, B20 seems to be exclusively used for VoLTE. I couldn’t browse or even send sms/WhatsApp messages.

I’m liking 1p so far. Just wish they had an app or at least a half decent website. Also, £10 as a minimum top up is too much. They should be more flexible with people who mainly have the sim for data like myself. I’m never gonna use 1000 minutes. And my data is already paid for.

Did they not give you a £5 phone credit when you signed up for the £15/50GB data "boost"? As long as you keep renewing the data bundle, that £5 doesn't expire so you've no need to separately top up at all if you're hardly using the phone.
I actually got £5.20 instead of £5.00 for some odd unexplained reason when I joined in December, and every 30 days when my data package renews, that counts as a top-up, so the "next top-up due" date changes accordingly - I've used a massive 3p-worth of voice/text calls so it now says I have £5.17 credit (excluding the data boost, of course) and next top-up has moved to a June date.

EE (5G) @ Roman Verulamium (St Albans).
300/40 Mbps. Quite impressive considering there are few hundred people around, possibly more.
Vodafone/lebara is underwhelming at the same spot, 8/20 Mbps.
