Argos and Anywhere SIM have teamed up to start selling SIM cards through the retailer in the UK. These SIM cards are unique by the fact they switch between O2, Vodafone and EE depending on which offers the strongest signal. The company plans to work hard at eliminating so-called "black spots" — locations where signal is hard to come by on specific networks. Should you travel to locations where it's difficult to enjoy a stable connection with your chosen UK network provider, you may wish to take a look at the Anywhere offering.
As reported by Engadget:
Once you've purchased an Anywhere SIM and are ready to rock and roll, the company will offer three different PAYG (Pay As You Go) plans. On Home you'll be able to place calls on O2, but are able to receive calls from all other networks (works just like you're with O2 itself). The UK plan will unlock access to Vodafone and EE to place calls, though the price of both a call and MB of data is 10p. Finally there's EU, which offers all roaming agreements signed by Anywhere, but bumps the price of calls up by a further 2p per minute.
4G, monthly plans and access to Three's network are in the pipeline. Even with these additions yet to be added to the company's solution, it's still worth the consideration. Be sure to be on the lookout for Anywhere SIM cards at your local Argos outlet or online.
