Opting for a Plusnet SIM card will be an EE SIM card as Plusnet is an MVNO of EE. As you would imagine, this accesses EE’s network coverage and infrastructure for a cheaper price than that of going to EE directly.
Plusnet is an EE MVNO
Putting the kids on the Plusnet Mobile Network is exactly the same as putting them on an EE SIM Only plan. This allows access to EE’s signal coverage and network infrastructure, so if you’re in an area where coverage from another network is required, the same will be said of a Plusnet SIM only deal.
Upgrading coverage to include all networks
When ordering a ParentShield SIM you can easily upgrade the coverage of your kids SIM card to harness the coverage of all the networks.
Just choose Super Roaming option in the checkout process and leave a note on the final page to let us know that you would like us to also add EE’s coverage – our network team will do the rest.
Super-Roaming is an optional extra at the ParentShield online shop.
Is Plusnet Mobile the best SIM card for kids?
If your motivation is price driven, and taking into account EE’s excellent coverage, it possibly is. But if you’re looking for added network features to protect your child, possibly not.
The ParentShield customer service team is inundated with parents covering off the pre-sales questions and large data bundles isn’t one of the desired topics – quite the contrary in fact. The majority of parents that our team speak with either want mobile data completely disabled, or a small amount to locate the phone and to check bus timetables etc; given that the majority of usage for younger children will be using the home Wifi.
Plusnet Mobile eSIM
Plusnet aren’t currently providing eSIM’s, but if you are hunting for an eSIM for kids, ParentShield have made them available.
