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.

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:

@darrenni, your comment on making it clearer that you can't tether on iPhones was uploaded yesterday.


@darrenpainter, @rhinoman, yes there have been changes on the T&Cs. Essentially you can tether, plug in dongles, go wild on tablet PCs, with both our standard rates (20p/MB) or with our Data only goodybags (gigabags). This however is not permited with our phone use goodyabgs where data is unlimited. We can't afford to go Unlimited and allow tethering, dongle use, etc. 


I hope this makes sense guys. Keep fireing those sugestions on copy if things aren't clear enough for you.

Excellent news on the launch of the gigabags. To add to what's been said above, once the industry makes some serious investment in 3G and the upcoming 4G, I can see gigabags replacing wired broadband. This can only be a good thing for giffgaff!

I've recently just tried a Gigabag, in my phone, and have to say I never realised how much data I use! :smileysurprised: At this rate of use I will be out of data half way through the month. That's going to be an expensive two weeks! Still, I can't wait to hear any updates on the iPhone tethering workaround that Tom mentioned earlier. That would be great! :smileyhappy:
