Tesco's has that little * (when i say little it must be 1pt size font) just to say unlimited doesn't mean unlimited.. 

 

Giffgaff have no need for that little * Smiley Very Happy

gg need to leave their tariffs alone so that there is some stability in their pricing, not go chasing every other networks deals.

I agree with Jonmd gg are very competitive against other pay as you go deals. So I don't see why they should go chasing contract prices

Erm Tesco did offer free GPRS with it's sims, deffo on pay as you go. For about 4 months I recall, sounds bad but after the free GPRS ended so did my time with them. They where new into the market at the time.

30 quid a month is the sweet spot contract wise. (Most people on contract have near enough a 30 pound deal.) So in a way giffgaff is after the contract market. In a very half a*sed way if you ask me.

I dont think GG have any intentions to compete with any contract/PAYG offers from other networks, there just an individual network that actually listen to the customers needs.
You say the majority of people are paying £30 a month on contract, and none of them get the unlimited everything as GG offer. 
Therefore i think they beat all other networks hands down, and not in a very half a**** way, but in a major competitor way.

I think the last thing GG want to do is be static. They're all about evolving and making things interesting.

goodybags were created in response to user discussion long before you joined and competing with contract was an important part of that discussion. You should also remember giffgaff 'borrowed' the 8p/4p pricing from Tesco & Asda then threw in some freebies - hard to interpret that as anything but competing.

 

 

If giffgaff ever stop competing for customers it will be time to leave.

i meant that there are many posts about asda/tecso sim only deals, but i dont think GG have any intention on changing their goodybags to match (although there is a fair useage policy on their networks), and they are currently offering the best deals on the market.
