The truth around business mobile contracts and how your deal is built
· The lowest monthly line rental isn’t always the cheapest solution in the long run.
· Don’t assume that just agreeing to an upgrade to get a fleet of the latest devices with the network direct is always going to work out best for your business over the full contractual period. Often they will just see how they can finance the device for you rather than analysing your business usage in terms of the tariff structure.
· Early upgrades often do you out of a better deal as the money used to pay off your old contract is what would otherwise go towards the cost of new devices
· Larger businesses will often have groups of workers in different geographical locations and with extremely varied usage profiles. A one size fits all, direct single network deal on a one sharer tariff is very rarely the best fit these days.
· You don’t necessarily need to refresh your entire fleet of devices when you renew. There is always money in the deal which often doesn’t find its way back to your business when you are tied to a network tech fund.
· Early upgrades often do you out of a better deal as the money used to pay off your old contract is what would otherwise go towards the cost of new devices or cash back to you.
Getting a truly impartial view
Tariffs are complex at the best of times and when you are the one that has to compare the pros and cons of multiple network proposals it can seem that you aren’t comparing apples with apples. This is where the real benefit of a 3rd party independent provider comes in to make sense of it all.
