3 has launched a cut-price monthly mobile phone tariff, as it looks to capitalise consumers’ new cost-consciousness in the face of the credit crunch.
The £9 per month charge makes 3’s offering the only single-digit priced mobile phone tariff on the market.
Under the terms of the deal, customers on the Mix & Match 100 tariff are entitled to 100 minutes or texts (or a combination of the two), free voicemail, and 300 minutes of calls to other 3 mobiles.
They also benefit from free Skype chat and calls and free Windows Live Messenger.
Marc Allera, sales and marketing director at 3 UK, said: “Delivering value to consumers has always been a priority, that’s why we’re the first and only mobile network to try to take the worry out of at least one bill a month with the UK’s first ever £9 tariff.
“The current economic climate means that we’re more committed than ever to finding ways to pass savings to consumers.”
The Mix and Match 100 offer is available with the Sony Ericsson K660i.
