TalkTalk's unlimited everything SIM is £12 per month but laden with fine print

The UK mobile market is undergoing a serious makeover, with two huge acquisitions on the horizon and new MVNOs popping up left, right and centre. Quad-play provider TalkTalk is already known for its low-cost broadband, TV and mobile deals, but now's a more important time than most to show you can stay relevant and competitive. Hence the company's latest promotion, which sees the launch of a SIM-only mobile tariff that gives you unlimited everything -- that's minutes, texts and 3G data -- for just £12 a month. Better yet, it's being offered on a 30-day rolling contract, meaning you don't need to sign up for a year or more of service to take advantage of the deal. Cheap, easy and tempting, right? Well, yes, but before you go cancelling whatever contract you're on now, know that there's a heap of terms and conditions attached to this otherwise attractive offer.

Firstly, there's a time limit on the promotion, so you'll need to grab an "all-in SIM" before the offer expires at the end of June. Also, while the deal's technically open to everyone, new customers need to sign up to a TalkTalk broadband plan to become eligible for the unlimited SIM -- cancel your internet subscription and the cost of the SIM rises to £24 per month with 2000 minute and 2GB data caps. (Starting to sound a little inconvenient yet?)

There are some restrictions on its use, too. You can only plug the SIM into a smartphone and tethering is forbidden, but more importantly, it's bound by TalkTalk's "Good Network Guidelines." These state that if your activity is "compromising the data flow" of others on the network, TalkTalk can refuse to renew your limitless SIM, presumably once the current 30-day contract is up. If you're already a TalkTalk customer, then this promo might fit your needs and then some. If not, though, it's probably not worth changing your broadband provider for an unlimited SIM TalkTalk can effectively revoke at any time.
