Ofcom has today accredited HandsetExpert for its price comparison service.
HandsetExpert is a website that provides advice for consumers who want to find the best deals for mobile phones and tariffs.
Ofcom accreditation is awarded to price comparison services that pass a rigorous independent audit.
HandsetExpert provides information to consumers, to help them decide what phone, contract or deal to buy, and where to get it from. It sources information from across the web and combines it into single rating scores and buyers’ guides for each handset.
Shahrum Gilani, founder of HandsetExpert, said: “We are delighted and proud to have received accreditation from Ofcom. HandsetExpert was founded with the mission to provide customers with helpful, impartial advice for all things mobile. We understand that trust is vital; with this accreditation our customers can use our mobile phone contract and SIM comparison with confidence.”
Lindsey Fussell, Director of Ofcom's Consumer Group, said: “Price comparison websites play a crucial role in helping people to make effective choices about their communications services.
“Our accreditation scheme gives consumers the confidence that the price comparison information on accredited websites is accessible, accurate, transparent and comprehensive.”
HandsetExpert is the eighth price comparison website currently accredited under the Ofcom scheme, alongside BillMonitor, BroadbandChoices, Broadband.co.uk, Cable.co.uk, MobilePhoneChecker and SimplifyDigital and DigitalCompare.
