Blyk.co.uk – Ad-Supported Mobile Network
Blyk is a newly launched mobile network aimed squarely at the tender 16-24 year old age group. Upon joining, members receive a free SIM with 217 free SMS messages and 43 free minutes every month.
If you run out within your month you can top up at 10p per text and 15p per minute. Blyk is ad supported, so users will have to bear with the occasional branded commercial message (that’s up to 6 a day, to be exact). Ads are targeted, based on the customer profile which every member has to fill out to join. The cost for surfing sites from your phone is 99p per megabyte. Blyk is currently only available in the UK.
