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

what does purpose does the £12.50 one serve when you can get unlimited intertnet on £10 goodybag? AND calls and texts... ?

Ok, I definitely want to unlock my 3 MiFi dongle and get a giffgaff sim in there.  It'd definitely help with Uni.  But i do think that I'd possibly use the 3Gb up in a month.  I know 3 have a 1Gb, 3Gb and 7Gb package, would it be cost effective for GG to have a 7Gb gigabag too?  Or at least a step up from 3Gb.

Dario, it does make less sense, but you can't do everything on a phone that you can on an iPad or a netbook.  And there are a few GG users who are also iPad users.  AND I know at least one person who I suggested GG to and they asked if it was compatible with the iPad.  This will definitely appeal to the iPad users as opposed to the data users.

wow good news

The more goodybags to choose from the better, each customer has different needs when it comes to using their phone, some text some call and some want data, and some want it all. So this is good news it should attract more customers.

I've often wondered, with these data allowances, are they for Uploads, Downloads, or the two combined? I would guess it's either for downloads, or the two combined, but would I be right? They never really say... Smiley Happy
