help build a more sustainable network

By 2040 communication technology will account for 14% of the global environmental footprint.

Your network probably hasn’t mentioned this but we need to take action.

With Honest, you make a positive impact everytime you use your phone.

Smartphone Carbon Footprint

  We offset double the carbon footprint of your smartphone. This means you remove CO2 from the atmosphere every time you use your phone. We do this by investing in afforestation, biochar and direct air capture.

  1% of your bill is donated to reforestation projects. This is in on top of being a carbon negative company and helps to improve biodiversity and support local communities. Help us on our mission to plant 1 million trees.

 We know there’s more to do and we’re working on becoming even more sustainable in the future. Learn more here.

building a network for people and planet 🌍

lHi, we’re Andy and Josh, and we’re the co-founders of honest mobile 👋

We think the mobile industry is broken. It’s spent the last couple of decades tying you into complicated contracts, overcharging you for being a loyal customer, keeping you on hold, and almost everyone we speak to has their own bad experience with a mobile network.

We knew there had to be a better way, one that’s better for you and better for our planet. That’s why we launched honest mobile 🚀

With inflexible contracts and sneaky charges at the end of the month,  you’re also often better off leaving your current network to get a better deal.  Unlike other networks, we’re not going to let you pay for a plan you don’t need, so we send you a notification when you should downgrade, and our loyalty discount means your bill gets cheaper each month you stay.

We get that you’re busy. You don’t want to waste your life on hold 🤯 That’s why you can manage everything in our app, and if you do need a hand you can speak to a real person in under a 30 seconds

The tech industry isn’t facing up to the reality of the climate crisis. It contributes the same amount of CO2 as global aviation – but no one’s talking about it. That’s why we’re proud to be the world’s first carbon negative mobile network. We offset double the CO2 emissions generated by our members’ phone use, manufacture and daily charging – as well as everything we do at honest HQ. 

We’re also incredibly proud to be the UK’s first Certified B Corp network. Every decision we make considers our members, our employees and the planet 🌍 just like some other brands you’ll know like Patagonia, Bulb and Innocent Drinks. 

We’d love you to join our amazing members and help to build a better mobile network that has a positive impact on our planet.

stuck in a contract?

No problem, let us know your renewal date and we’ll send you a reminder in a couple of weeks before it ends.

    FAQs

    can I switch to honest and keep my number?

    Absolutely!

    To move your number to Honest Mobile you’ll need to get a PAC from your current network. You can get this by texting ‘PAC’ to 65075 (it’s free!) – then once your SIM arrives, we’ll just ask for your PAC, your phone number and you can choose a date for the switch to happen. You can do it all in the app!

    when are you launching 5G?

    We’ll be launching 5G and WiFi calling very soon. Our 5G test SIMs are up and running and we’ll let you know as soon as we have an official launch date 🚀

    We chose to piggyback on Three because of their incredible 5G offering – more usable 5G than any other UK network and it’s 100MHz! Bring on super-speedy streaming and near-instant downloads!

    i'm tied into a contract, can I still join?

    You can, but, there is normally an early termination fee so please make sure you check this first.

    Text “INFO” to 85075 (for free) to find out how long you have left on your contract and whether you have an early termination fee. 

    what is the carbon footprint of my phone?

    The carbon footprint of an average year’s smartphone usage is 69kg (this includes production and transport). That’s based on an iPhone 11 128GB used for 3 hours and 15 minutes a day over two years.

    Learn more

    which network do you piggyback on?

    We piggyback on Three's masts.

    how can I check signal in my area?

    You can check the signal in your area using Ofcom’s signal checker: https://checker.ofcom.org.uk/mobile-coverage

    what does carbon negative mean?

    Carbon negative means we go beyond being carbon neutral. We offset double the CO2 created by the manufacture, use and daily charging of your phone.

    how is my phone's carbon footprint offset?

    We offset the CO2 of your phone’s carbon footprint by planting trees and using new technologies like Biochar and Direct Air Capture.
