Your complete guide to OVO Mobile

Telecommunications provider OVO Mobile provides a range of mobile and mobile data options paired with its OVOPlay data-free streaming service. OVO states that it believes “that fans should come first” and that it is “not like every other telco”.

“When we say we promise to be ‘fans first’ it means we’ll sign you up on our best deal, but more importantly we’ll keep moving you onto our best plan,” OVO states.

“You don’t have to do the leg work to know what our competitors are up to, we promise to keep sharpening our prices and throwing more into our plans and we’ll automatically give this to you. We’re bringing sportsmanship to telcos because we reckon that’s what the fans deserve.”

What does OVO Mobile offer?

In addition to its mobile plan allowances, OVO’s OVO Time allows users to stream content via its OVOPlay app without using their monthly data allowance.

“When we sign-up new media partners, as long as you’re on our team you’ll have access to everything they have,” OVO states. “With OVO you’ll have to get used to coming first – every time.”
