Unfortunately, it isn't the best in the United Kingdom but it does offer a lot of benefits, for example, Lycamobile is a MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), so it relies on another network, which means they can make their deals more affordable for customers.
The main advantage of joining a PAYG deal is that it offers cheap prices and customers will be able to choose a bundle that is perfect for them. For example, there are deals that cost less than £20.

As a pay as you go members, customers have the flexibility of not being tied down to a lengthy contract. This means people can cancel and change plans at the end of their deal. Students that change their phone plans regularly due to the financial struggle of being a student will benefit from PAYG deals.
Another positive feature about being a PAYG member is that you won't need credit to call other Lycamobile numbers.
