Lebara Mobile offers 4G and 5G coverage with Vodafone's network, claiming coverage of over 98%.

Lebara Mobile's deals and incentives

Lebara Mobile only has Sim-only deals that come with no contract ranging from 3GB for £4.50 to unlimited data for £22.50 a month. Most deals come with unlimited minutes and texts. 

Most packages also come with a selected number of international minutes to 41 countries including USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Lebara Mobile doesn't have the range of incentives offered by other networks and its out-of-bundle prices are not the cheapest. However, out-of-bundle charges are automatically set at zero meaning no extra charges will be applied without your express permission.
