May I firstly point out the £20 goodybag is not unlimited it is indeed Always on data
What is "Always On"?
We know many of you find the concept of unlimited appealing as it gives peace of mind that you will always have data. On the other hand a small number of members using unlimited data still use a huge portion of our available data which impacts the experience for all our members.
In order to balance the data usage better, we have introduced "Always On" data.
On goodybags with "Always on" data you will benefit from:
Your first 6GB of data can be used at full 4G speeds and can be used to tether.After the first 6GB of data usage, you will get an unlimited data allowance at reduced speed (256kbps) from 8am to midnight (you get full speed data between midnight and 8am).
Can I tether on goodybags with "Always On" data?
Yes, it will be possible to tether on goodybags using "Always On" data during the first 6GB of data usage.
From the moment you receive a text to let you know that you have exhausted your 6GB of full speed data, you are switched to an unlimited data allowance and tethering is not allowed anymore.
giffgaff would of sent you a warning regarding this before you recieved your BAN,you must of took no notice and carried on doing what you were doing wrong.
If you use a goodybag SIM card in a dongle or a tablet device, you will be contacted by email and your mobile Internet usage will be suspended until you standard rates for mobile data will apply.
If you tether using your airtime balance you'll be able to do so until your credit runs out.
