Looking for something?

I think giffgaff should offer higher giga-bags maybe something like 5GB 10GB and 15GB Giga-bags

I was wondering why giffgaff didn't do higher GB Giga-bags for the higher user?

The price would mean that they would become uncompetitive. We estimate that a 10gb gigabag would retail at £20-£25 each. We also believe the market for 10gb+ gigabags would be extremely small and the more tariffs you have the more complicated things would become. Thank you for your idea and I look forward to your future contributions!

1GB or 3GB plans were fine for the average phone. But now we’re all using Tablets and doing more than surfing the web, messaging and viewing the occasional Youtube video. The current data plans aren’t good enough for people who want to get full use from their Tabs - 1GB barely covers a week, and 3GB is absurdly small for a month’s use.

 

Giffgaff should at LEAST double the allowance to 6GB/month simply to catch up with consumer demand. Devices consume more data than ever before, and carriers should reflect that fact in their data plans.

What sort of prices are you thinking of for these new gigabags?

I think there should be really big ones to, say 10GB and 20GB.

Three network has a 5GB/£15 data plan - I'd rather pay £15 for 5GB than £12.50 for 3GB, but even 5GB is far from adequate. There are things I can't do because of data restrictions, like watching sport streams. I'd be more comfortable with 10GB/month, but I'm sure the prices would be around 20 quid, which is unfair compared to goodybag deals. Basically, the whole thing is unfair - so-called unlimited internet on a phone, but if your device has a larger screen aka Tablet you pay through the nose.

As it stands giffgaff isn't an viable option for mobile broadband to be taken seriously. Too expensive, not enough data, and where I am all I get on giffgaff/O2 is 2G GPRS anyway so I have no alternative than to use Three for data. giffgaff's gigabag offerings for data are so poor it's not even worth considering for backup either to be honest.

Agree 100 percent. 

 

Unexpiring data would also be brilliant (and much fairer, giffgaff shouldn't be copying the practices of the big boys with there rip off contracts). Ideal for those who have irregular usage of tablets away from home.

I wasn't suggesting that allowances should last forever!

What I should have wriiten was 'use 'til empty' OR 30 days. giffgaff need a reasonable revenue stream if the network is to survive long term.

Is there ANy plans to introduce a 5 or 6 Gigabag in the very NEAR future, I ask as I now have an iPad but the 3G would not be any good for me whatsoever, and the price per day when it runs out makes it far to expensive, I would love to keep with giff gaff for my dongle but it's looking that I might have  to sign up with three.

 

quick response would be great has I need to get my iPad set up ASAP.

 

 

thanks

You might be better off looking at EE.  For PAYG data they are similarly proced to the oither offereings.  But a rolling one month contract would se you with 15Gb for only £20 or a whopping 25Gb for £30.  Those offereings make giffgaff appear totally inadequate.  

 

However,  gg is STILL better value for the lower data allowance products.  EE would want £15 for 3Gb for example.
