How is giffgaff so cheap????

[ Edited ]

Honestly, how is giffgaff so dam cheap? I just moved to the uk from the states, and i was fortunate enough to stumble upon giffgaff. I had what i thought was an awesome plan in the states. For $30/month (about £19), i got 500 anytime minutes, unlimited texting and data, and free night and weekend calling starting at 19:00. This was with sprint, and required a 2 year contract. The thing is, this was a legacy plan that is no longer available, and now the plan is unbelievable within the states. Most people pay around $70 ( ~£44) for an unlimited plan these days. So my question is... How the f is giffgaff so **bleep** cheap? the plan i had in the states was quite a bit faster for data, i must admit. Is it possible to use a 3G network with giffgaff, or is that part of the catch?

Easy, no call centres, minimal advertising (all done online). 


Just because giffgaff has a problem doesn't mean everyone else is...

giffgaff does run on 3g ...where available ... but also 2g if it's not

use this coverage checker to see availability in your area ... it's o2 ..but then that's what giffgaff runs on..
