As our dependence on technology gets bigger something as simple as a phone plan can have a big difference in our lives. Tonight’s winner has generous limits and a high fair usage policy. Particularly appealing is the transparent nature of its 'Freestyle' plans where phone and allowances are separate, making it very clear to consumers what is being paid for and when.
