Founded in 2012, The People's Operator aims to offer consumers what it claims is a more ethical alternative to rival providers.
Although The People's Operator is a virtual network and has no infrastructure of its own, it rents EE's network so is able to offer extensive UK coverage.
The People's Operator offers a range of rolling contract plans and pay as you go options, with competitive calling and data rates. Both its pay as you go and rolling contracts are referred to as 'bundles'.
The People's Operator's rolling contracts are on a 30-day basis and provide a monthly allowance of data, calls and texts which must be used in the time allocated.
As with rival networks, allowances on rolling contracts cannot be carried over from month to month and renewed automatically unless notice is given.
Choose a pay as you go People's Operator 'bundle' and you also have 30 days to use up your allowances.
Unlike the rolling contract plans, however, this will be a one-off payment. If you want more credit, you'll have to add it your account online or by phoning an operator.
One of the People's Operator's selling points to customers is that it aims to keep overheads low with the intention of passing on savings to subscribers in the form of low tariffs.
