Data only gigabags are here

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.

 

Tom

Thanks, I believe Cameron is aware as we have been discussing it on his thread

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?

Hi timahy, we are looking at having one account with multiple products but it will take a long time to deliver due to the complexity. We didn't want to delay the launch of the data only products for this as they also have taken a while to get live and there was demand by many of our members. Thanks.

I think some confusion is setting in here.

 

Once a gigabag allowance is used up during its month, then you have a 50MB buffer, then it reverts to 2p per MB while the gigabag is still in its months validity.

 

Once the month is up, then the account has no bag on it, therefore if any credit is present then that would be used at the 20p/day up to 20MB then 20p for each additional MB rate.

 

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.

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.
