BillMonitor is a UK-based mobile price comparison and switching website accredited by Ofcom, the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries.[1][2]

Started in 2007, the site was developed by mathematicians and scientific advisers from Oxford University and analyses historical usage patterns to predict future usage.[3]

Like its UK competitors, Mobile Phone Checker and moneysupermarket.com, the service recommends plans based on a user’s stated needs, in terms of minutes per month, texts, data and international use. The service also offers a monthly bill-tracking facility that allows users with online billing to give the site access to their past bills.[4]
