In a time where Mobile Contracts are seen advertising huge data bundles of 50Gb or 100Gb of data, a new contract has been unveiled proudly stating “No Data”. Data is seen as a total necessity on ‘adult’ contracts, but for children – particularly younger children – data brings untold problems.
The new No Data Contract comes from ParentShield one of the UK’s newest and most exciting MVNO which provides contracts for Children Only. Data is the main contributor to overspending as well as the main vector for untraceable communications. The No Data Tariffs are designed to be perfect ‘first phone’ tariffs designed to provide Parents and Carers with a safe training platform for new users.
Permanent or switched data – your choice.
Data can either be permanently disabled, or allowed as needed by the parent to use for location purposes. While every ParentShield SIM is fully controlled by a powerful Parent Portal, where data can be turned on and off instantly, it’s also possible for any individual SIM, on any tariff, to have mobile data disabled permanently if desired so it can’t even be turned on accidentally.
The Company sees early introduction of mobile technology to be vital in the aim of safe education, and sees their customers providing mobile phones over a year earlier than the industry-accepted average of slightly over 10 years in age.
The new Safe Stage 1 No Data contract provides all the same Child Protection features as all the other ParentShield Tariffs – Call Recording, SMS recording, Advanced Blocking, Time Controls and Word Alerts – but disables data at the network level so the user has no access to untraceable communications via Mobile Data.
Any individual telephone number can be blocked via the phone’s admin portal and, unlike normal telephone call barring, blocks are affective for both incoming and outgoing calls. The blocking is under the control of the phone account holder ( the parent ) and cannot be bypassed or circumvented by the mobile phone user. The account holder has powerful controls that can be set appropriately for each user’s level of responsibility.
The service, available with various bundle options, is a pay-monthly SIM-only service. The Engine SIM card is inserted in any mobile phone and it’s instantly protected. The network offers full true UK roaming, connecting to the strongest signal from any of the major UK networks. This means it also provides the best mobile network coverage available in even remote areas of the country.
