GiffGaff is on the forefront of a Revolution in how modern Communication Business is done.. GiffGaff also promotes the freedom to use your mobile for what you want. But by blocking tethering (which is now included by O2 as standard across All simplicity and standard tarrifs) goes against everything they stand for. 


If you agree with me, comment. This is the point of GiffGaff.


I know there is lots of Messages relating to this, but nothings been done. 



Were not really getting Unlimited internet, untill this is achived.


If it costs more, we will pay for it ... Just give us the choice.

Giffgaff have banned the use of tethering to avoid abuse of it. The reason why O2 offer tethering across their tarriff ranges is because their internte isn't truly unlimited. It is capped at some point but the reason why giffgaff don't offer tethering is because they offer unlimited Internet across their ranges.

But it want them to be overwhelmed .. 


This is a small point , but everyone who i know on giffgaff is annoyed that this is only Network not to offer tethering.. Look at 3.. Growing massivly due to there culture based around internet.


In the Next decade, minutes and texts will be irrelivant.


The internet is the future and thus, should be open.


This is not a Duplicate.... This is trying to get an actual answer.


If people just shut up, **bleep**e all will happen. When have we ever had the oppurtunity to talk directly to the people running the system?... This is the point of GiffGaff.. If a points been raised time and time again or to quote "It has been mentioned many, many times." They it must have some steam.


Stop finding reasons to squash this and just think, yeah why not this guy believes in something. Lets see where this goes. People don't fight through the fronts to go, oh everyone says this war is **bleep**e, lets go home. They carry on. 


Maybe i have a different view on this MobileCompany Experiement but i dont think some people should quash ideas based on the fact that they have seen it before.


Few.. Im out of steam. And my fingers are sore. Viva La Revilution. (Maybe a little extreme, but i hope u get my point)

If you have concerns over the duplicate status then the correct procedure is to contact david_m or vincent. As andreww has explained a few of us help tidy up the forums by marking things we perceive as duplicates as such. We do this to help out but the final decision is from the staff members if there is a debate about whether something should be a duplicate or not.


Giffgaff are planning to introduce a sim only data goodybag soon, and we are yet to see what terms and conditions may be attached to such a goodybag.

It's not being squashed. You can post every day on this subject and it is no problem to me if you do. You can PM the giffgaff staff too. I'm all for freedom of speech. But, objectively, is this a new idea that has never been posted before? No. In that case it will get marked as a duplicate :smileywink:

No one gets my point.. (slap Head)


This is social networking, not a news paper.


by mary_r_t on ‎16-07-2011 23:13

I think we do understand your point but I, for one, have just been trying to give you the correct method of getting things done :-)


I will admit that the tethering ban is annoying at times but I understand the reason why it is in place.

The OP says "we" would pay for it if necessary and "just give us a choice".


First, whether the OP pays for it or not, tethering would impact exponentially on the bandwidth used - potentially detracting from the service to us all, including those of us who just want a 'phone service and don't have any interest in tethering.


Second, we already have a choice.  Giffgaff's position on tethering is the same as it was when we joined.  The choice is simple:  accept the terms or go elsewhere.


I'm not trying to be as mean as that explanation probably suggests but the point here is that there is much more involved than just whether someone is willing to pay for something.  Whether the rest of us would be happy with the effects on current bandwidth is just one, simple example.

Maybe if it draws revenue, giff gaff will expand and thus cheaper giffgaff allround.. Just Like roadtax, charge the people who wanna drive the big cars. Growth needs to be sustainable and GiffGaff could tap into a growing market, smartphones and tablets are the future and this is the fatsest growing sector.
