The only point to watch out for is that all plans come with a speed cap of 20Mbps. This is by no means slow, but is not the lightning speed you’ll get from most at-home connections. If you’re looking to compare that speed with the one you’re currently running on, we can recommend this speedtest (opens in new tab) for a direct comparison with your current mobile internet speed versus what Felix would cap you at.
The process for signing up with Felix is simple – if you’re keen to sign up, you can either download the Felix app onto your mobile device from the Apple or Google stores and complete the process in-app, or sign up in-browser (opens in new tab).
The process involves making an account, ordering a SIM and checking out. Again the code FLX will take the cost of the first month off of your order. Following this you are not locked into a contract of any kind. The service simply rolls over month to month unless you decide to pause or cancel it, both of which are free to do.
If you’re wondering if you get to keep your number throughout this process don’t stress, the answer is yes. Felix gives a simple 3-point plan on how to switch your number over (opens in new tab).
