Spusu Mobile UK Review: SIMs With EU Calls, EU Roaming & EE Coverage

Spusu UK offers SIM-only deals from £2.90 per month. You’ll get inclusive calls to the EU, along with EU roaming and 5G coverage from EE.

Spusu is a new SIM-only mobile network in the UK, promising to offer ‘simple’ and ‘fair’ mobile plans with 4G & 5G coverage from EE. The company originates from Austria where they were founded in 2015, before they launched their UK mobile network in April 2023.

In our opinion, Spusu’s UK mobile network might be a good option if you have friends and family in another European country. That’s because you’ll get 500 international minutes each month for calling EU destinations, along with inclusive European roaming. There’s also highly-efficient customer support available through WhatsApp.

On the other hand, Spusu is still a fairly new entrant to the UK mobile market. As such, they have an unproven record and you’ll be one of the first customers here in the UK. In addition, some of their plans are relatively expensive compared to other mobile networks. It’s also a contract-based product with no option to Pay As You Go.

In this article, we’ll review Spusu’s UK mobile network, including the plans and features available on their network. We’ll also look at the coverage available on Spusu and how you can keep your current phone number when you join the Spusu network.

EE TV Boxes: EE TV Box Pro, Apple TV 4K & EE TV Box Mini Compared

When you join EE TV, there’s now a choice of three different boxes. Compare the EE TV Box Pro, the Apple TV 4K, and the EE TV Box Mini.

If you’re joining EE TV, there’s now a choice of three different boxes: the EE TV Box Pro, the Apple TV 4K, and the EE TV Box Mini. All of them will give you access to the same channels through an internet connection but there are some differences in terms of the other features available (e.g. whether you’re able to record live TV, and the range of apps available on the box).

In general, you’re best off getting the EE TV Box Pro if you want the ability to store recordings on your own box, as opposed to relying on catch-up services like BBC iPlayer. It also gives you the option of receiving Freeview channels through an aerial. Meanwhile, the Apple TV 4K gives you a wider range of apps, along with powerful voice search functionality through Siri. However, you won’t be able to store your own recordings and there’s no aerial functionality for Freeview.

When you take EE TV with EE home broadband, you’ll be able to add their multi-room service at no extra cost. With multi-room, you can have up to two EE TV Box Minis at no extra cost, allowing you to watch TV in another room at the same time.

In this article, we’ll compare the range of boxes available on EE TV, and whether you should choose the EE TV Box Pro or the Apple TV 4K. We’ll also take an in-depth look at the features and the specifications of each box.

Airalo eSIMs: Stay Connected & Save Money On Your Travel With A Prepaid eSIM

With Airalo’s eSIM plans, you can stay connected when you travel abroad for a much lower rate than roaming on your normal mobile network.

If you’re travelling abroad to another country for your winter break, it’s worth looking at how much it will cost to use your mobile phone whilst you’re there. The typical costs of international roaming are now more than £14 per week for travel in Europe and more than £40 per week for travel outside Europe (e.g. in the USA, Canada and Australia).

The good news is you can side-step these international roaming charges by using an eSIM from Airalo. Prices start from US$4.50 (approx £3.50) for a digital SIM card that you can download directly to your mobile phone. You can use it to stay connected on your trip abroad. And because it’s a lot more affordable, there’s no need to have your data switched off during the trip. There’s also no need to waste your time constantly looking for free wi-fi.

In this article, we’ll review the Airalo service, including the Airalo app and the eSIMs that are available from Airalo. We’ll also compare the costs of roaming on your normal UK SIM card to the costs of using an Airalo eSIM in popular tourist destinations.
