It would be nice to be able to have a goody goodybag where you can have unlimited 4G access instead of only having 20 gb then going down to 3G. Especially for people who use there giffgaff payg mobile for work.

That would be nice but unfortunately not on giffgaff now am afraid. 

 

Out of interest, how much are you willing to pay for that?

Hi @voidpetersen there are several ideas in Labs suggesting unlimited data, https://labs.giffgaff.com/browse?sc=unlimited - you should choose the one you like the best and lend it your support.

 

Note that historically giffgaff did offer unlimited data but had to discontinue it as it was not financially viable.

@voidpetersen

Hello unlimited was scrapped in 2015 

so don’t think it will return , it’s fine as it is for the money plus you only used to get 9gb at 4g speed 

giffgaff only supports private use not business use

giffgaff had a goodbag named unlimited .... people used it to stream videos and download stuff .,... giffgaff didnt like this so they cut them off  ... then brainwashed most the forum in to beleiveing anyone using there phone much is a data abuser and is affecting the network  , so not a good idea for giffgaff to name a goodybag unlimited also this always on and its secret limits is bad enough Smiley Happy

*only* 20gb? You can't expect giffgaff to be able to compete with the likes of 3. I am surprised heavy data users use giffgaff instead of being on a contract with 3 or EE.

@05hudsond .. the unlimited bag finished in 2015 ... if you read my earlier post it explains traffic flow policies for each network ... not just gg.
