Not a happy bunny. I see the always on goody bag has shot up £5. Looks like I will be shopping around....

It has unfortunately but the new £20 goodybag still offers a shed load of data without speed caps. It's a shame that the always on goodybag has had to increase in price for the lower end ones to be improved but overall I think its a move that will have been beneficial for a lot of members.

@traveller64

There were some better off with goodybag refresh https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/goodybag-refresh-July-2018/ta-p/21990906 but high end users saw a price increase, hopefully you will find something to suit or stay with giffgaff

Hi @traveller64 yes it has gone up but you also get 20GB of full speed data (as opposed to 9GB) before your speeds are throttled between 0800 and midnight.

 

Alternatively the £20 you used to spend on the old Always On goodybag now gives you 20GB of full speed data.

Maybe so. But I find it good practise to inform that it's going up. And if I'm not mistaken. This is the second rise since I switched to giffgaff. And I have not been using it more than 6 months.......

@traveller64 affected members were contacted and it was announced here a month beforehand https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Announcements/Say-hello-to-more-data-on-our-5-amp-7-50-goodybags-a...

 

The change before that in Feb 2018 was to add unlimited minutes and 1GB of additional data to some goodybags at no extra charge, see here https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Announcements/New-goodybag-improvements-Unlimited-minutes-and-extr...

Hi

I do think that giffgaff prices are fair, the always on the element to it yes you can say its a price increase but with it, you get an 11GB increase too. (without being contracted into a 12/18)

if you look at three (1-month contract same as giffgaff) they charge £23.00 for 12GB and £27.00 for 30GB. Right in middle is giffgaff plan £20 for £20GB + safety of being able to use your data (that's how I describe it)
