All of the major networks provide impressive-sounding coverage statistics for their networks. You’ll notice that it’s almost always stated in terms of ‘population coverage’. Usually it will be 97-99% or something like that. Unfortunately, as we all know, the real performance is usually very different.
ParentShield is different – your ParentShield SIM is a true roaming SIM. It doesn’t rely on one particular network. While our preferred network, because of their superior 4G technology is Three, we have the ability to provision a SIM onto other UK networks as well. If you are particularly remote, your ParentShield SIM can be specified to roam seamlessly across multiple networks. This gives you a coverage that has to be seen to be believed.
For the Technical, our roaming is ‘unsteared’ which means we don’t pin you to one network and then roam if that network drops out. We allow our SIM to do what it’s designed to do, and roam freely onto the networks with the best coverage.
With all mobile networks, there are winners and losers and some areas that struggle. In cases where you can’t get any signal we will always refund the original first month’s subscription.
