Community Unlimited Internet Consultation…It’s Coming!

former giff-staffer

Hi all,


A month or so ago we confirmed that we would begin consultation with the giffgaff community around Unlimited Internet. Well I am delighted to be able to tell you this will be happening from Monday the 10th of September.


We have been working hard recently to finalise our Mobile Internet Strategy and we are now ready to share all of this information and our ideas with you on Monday. At the same time, we will open up a vote on one of the key decisions which needs to be made in the coming weeks. We want to run this consultation until September 20th, after which we will pull together all the feedback and share with you the general consensus of the community.


This is a really exciting time for us as a company and being able to open up this discussion to everyone and get you involved in our final Mobile Internet Strategy.






@rong42 ... as long as the new discussion doesn't run on for 327 pages of repeated phrases and paraphrases like that thread did ... only then to be locked ... Smiley Wink


Again, I see discussions about discussions about what to discuss ...


Our views will be


  • posted
  • discussed amongst members
  • commented on and discussed by gg
  • repeated and further commented on
  • 20th Sept thread closed
  • Thoughts taken away by gg and assessing (should ) commence
  • A large pause between the 20th Sept and any re-appearance of info regarding Unlimited Internet from gg
  • Community Vote will appear .... (CAUTION REQUIRED ..... remember the last vote and fake accounts??? Smiley Surprised !!!!! )
  • Vote results collated
  • Announcement (sometime later)
  • Implementation..

By my calculations we'll be looking at nearer December for the final outcome .... nowhere near as close as many will probably think....



I like the idea of a "vote on one of the key decisions".


Does this mean it'll be a simple Poll, running like the Friday Polls do, rather than the unruly debate you had last time (judging by the link from rong42)?



I ate the FAQ

@rong42 goodness me that was a while back but a useful reminder on the issues. Smiley Happy


@bitgeek what you forget is that there simply wasn't a consensus on what people wanted anyway (different people wanted different solutions) so lets just give giffgaff a chance to show they have listened to all opinions so far voiced.  Time to move on and progress with the issue and I look forward to seeing what giffgaff have come up with.  


Roll on Monday (though no doubt this thread will be rife with spectulation as always).

Thanks for the news Gregg ,  this has the potential to relieve a lot of tension on the forum , the most positive thing is that there is something happening  and  the members are being invited to get involved .


@ bitgeek ( jack  ) ,  it's true that in the past there have been some frustrations with similar projects ,  but  everyone , including businesses have  to learn  from  past experiences and  move on  , surely it's best to see how this works out before passing judgement and condemning it  ........  I  ( like a good few others I hope ) am  looking forward to seeing the proposals , and hoping that gg  have managed to find a proposition  /  possible  plan  that keeps the bean counters happy and still manages to give us ( members ) a deal that puts a smile on our faces .........  I'm thinking positive .  


Edited :  Better choice of words .

I think this is the best way to do it, and I hope that it goes as planned and manages to please as many giffgaff members as possible Smiley Happy

hope its worth it


 and hoping that gg  have managed to find a solution  that keeps the bean counters happy


I agree with the sentiment of welcoming the chance to close this off by member consultation...... but I hope that gg haven't yet found a solution ..... otherwise any vote that we're being told is going to happen would be a futile excercise?


I'm hoping that gg will find a solution that keeps the bean counters happy  Smiley Very HappySmiley Tongue

big cheese
This time we are voting on something so there must be x number of options to vote on what ever it is we are voting on. So that will be an absolute value The discussion before was just loads an floods of views and ideas giffgaff wouldn't possibly be even able to do someof them like day an hc bag with unlimited data for a fiver lol no way. But then I hope it's not going to go to like £35 similar to tmobiles t monte.there must be a middle ground around that giffgaff will offer, personally I fancy 50 mins 100 txt and 200meg for £2.50 Smiley Very Happy heheeheh suspect I might not get what I want

Will give it  a read for sure!
