What is the difference?

Most people have grown up with mobile networks. We tend to see them as identical in capabilities, features and performance. Few people could ever list a substantial number of differences ( if any! ) between the “big name” mobile networks.

Recent changes in the industry, however, have made room for innovation and the availability of new challenger networks that can introduce new features for specialist markets. ParentShield – the Mobile Network for Children is such a new Network.

ParentShield Child mobile network SIM card is designed to provide all the most important security benefits for Child use by introducing new Network facilities not available from a mainstream network.

Here is a comparison of the differences between ParentShield Child Network and a typical Mobile Network:
