LycaMobile is a virtual network that runs on the Orange network but the new LycaMobile Plus tariff is only on O2. You can check the LycaMobile coverage map and the LycaMobile Plus coverage map to find out about the signal strength in your local area.

More info

LycaMobile has been running in the UK since 2006 and is owned by LycaTel. Like Lebara, it’s started off being massively popular especially amongst the country’s ethnic communities and it has over 1.6 million customers already. Its call prices for the UK are very competitive but, as you might imaging, it specialised in cheap overseas calls. One of the best ways to save money with Lyca is by buying one of the international calls bundles which are great value.

As it uses Orange and O2 to provide its network services the signal should be good. Most people will be on the tariff that runs on Orange and this has much better 3G coverage. Especially now it’s merged with T-Mobile under the EE brand, the signal is about as good as you can get but check your local situation with the coverage maps linked above.

    the problem is you need both an unlocked and non 3G phone or calls cannot be made on LycaPlus.
    on a samsung B2700 it just refuses to work even after picking up LycaMobile and showing it on the screen. A crossed out fone icon appears and says emergency calls only.

    even Lyca C’Service gave up .
