How are the winners chosen?

To be considered as a shortlist candidate a product must have been fully reviewed by one of the experts at Trusted Reviews and scored at least a four-star rating. The winner is then decided by the internal team of experts based on their experience reviewing it and knowledge of the market holistically. The only exception to this are the newly launched mobile network awards.

Best mobile network awards

This year Trusted Reviews is launching a new category of mobile network awards. Unlike the Editor’s Choice Awards the winners will be decided based on a user survey that will gauge key factors including:

  • Would they recommend their network to others?
  • How do they rate their overall experience with the network?
  • How do they rate their network’s customer service?
  • How do they rate their network’s overall coverage?
  • How do they rate their network’s 5G coverage?
  • How do they rate their network’s roaming packages?
  • How would they rate their network for reliability?
  • How would they rate their network’s connection speed?
  • If they think their network’s good value for money
  • How would they rate their network’s rewards scheme/benefits?

Based on the results winners will be announced on the night for:

  • Best mobile network
  • Best value
  • Best for customer service
  • Most reliable
  • Best for roaming
  • Best for 5G coverage

To be considered for an award the network must also have fewer complaints registered with Ofcom than the yearly average.
