Data only goodybags

We have been working on delivering a data only goodybag and I can happily confirm that it these products will go live on the 10th October. In fact we are not launching one data only product but three. These are;

 

£5 for 500MB

£7.50 for 1GB

£12.50 for 3GB

 

Vincent has been discussing Data only goodybags in the Forum.  These products are to use with tablets, like iPads, dongles and other data devices.  If you wanted to tether with these data products, unlike our goodybags, you can.  These data only bags last for one month and can be bought from balance or with a debit or credit card (much like our goodybags). 

 

If you run over your allowance (e.g. 1GB), we’ll give you an extra 50MB for free.  If you then use all of this we have a special data goodybag rate of 2p per MB until the data goodybag expires.  We are planning to send you messages to let you know if you have used your allowance, when you start using the free 50MB and again when the 50MB is used up.

 

And this is what the data only goodybags looks like. 

 

 

We looked at data usage, went through lots of excel spreadsheets and double checked the fine details and we’ve squeezed as much data as we can into each of these goodybags, in fact if you use every bit of data in these products, giffgaff will lose money.  However we predict that not everyone who buys them is going to use all the data, so the overall data usage on these goodybags will balance out meaning that these really are the best value we can give to you.

 

Accompanying the launch of these lovely data only products is a new giffgaff App.  Vincent is discussing it in the Forum, so pop over if you want to take a sneak preview of features or contribute any ideas.

 

A data only product has been a popular idea on the Ideas Board, with over 100 Kudos, so it is great to be able to deliver and launch these products.

 

Thanks

Good news for me. I have a Three micro-sim in my iPad at present and use about 500MB a month but have to buy a 1GB sim. I would also rather use GiffGaff than Three. Two questions:  1. can I use the sim in my dongle on my iMac (I don't have broadband/landline at present); 2. can I use the data abroad (I am travelling to US/Canada in October and to New Zealand in December).

Giffgaff you actually thought of excellant idea to be honest people use the web and aps and everything on phone but today people use there phone as a modem as sum people cant get landlines and bordband due to credit reports i think it be easyire for us who people who can scarch the net go on lots of things instead of big downloads Dont u agree people?

Will the data only goodybags also qualify you for the next 3 months of giff gaff to giff gaff free calls when you top up?

@framak
Yes, you are missing the fact that these new goodybags can be used on a computer or tablet, which isn't allowed on the current goodybags. Smiley Happy

@calartha
Yes, you will be able to use the new gigabags in an a dongle on your iMac.
Unfortunately, you cannot use the bags abroad, where you will be charged at roaming rates.

@bevshack2
Yes it will, if you buy it via credit/debit card and it becomes live straight away (not queued).
