This morning I am pleased to announce the launch of our data only gigabags.


If you are a regular community member or pop by the blog frequently, you would have hopefully seen Vincent discussing all things data in the forum and I posted a blog on data only ‘gigabag’ prices a few weeks back.


For a bit of fun :smileyhappy: and to maybe help you think about what gigabag you should buy, we have compiled a list of what you could do with your data. These are approx volumes.


  • With 1gb, you can listen to 16 hours of radio, that’s a lot of Radio 1’s Zane Lowe.
  • 3gb will enable you to send 3 million basic/text e-mails.  Which is a lot.

So that’s it. Welcome the gigbags into the giffgaff product family and enjoy.


Have a great Thursday.

How come when I try to add a Gigabag it doesn't start for a month?, I'd like to tether today.

ma1kie, do you already have a goodybag on your account. If so, then that is why, because a goodybag and a gigabag cannot co-exist during the same month.

Probably as you already have a goodybag ? You can't have a sim with both you'd need another sim. Is that what's happened with you

Must be, can I swap plans or do I need another sim card?

darrenpainter: "All previous terms and conditions relating to the use of payg credit in devices other than phones have now been removed from the T&Cs , therefore standard payg use in such devices is now permitted."


It still has (now in 5.13):


5.13. In addition to our standard terms and conditions, all usage must be for your private, personal and non-commercial purposes. You may not use your SIM Card: a) In, or connected to, any other device including modems, dongles or any other way to connect to a PC (unless you are on a gigabag plan)


I know it doesn't specifically mention tablets, but I can't remember whether it did before.

Rhinoman, section 5 relates to goodybags section 4 relates to PAYG which now no longer has any reference to permitted devices/tethering? I was very particular to mention PAYG in my statement to avoid that confusion :smileyhappy:
