Hi guys - if you stay on the rail tracks - a train will hit you - you need to go faster than the competition to prevent being hit! There is competition in the shape of a newish company called SMARTY who offer 4 plans ALL with tethering, unlimited calls and texts,  starting at £6.25 for 1GB £7.50 for 2GB, £10 for 4GB and £15 for 8GB. All on the Three network. Smarty.JPG

I wonder if they have a sustainable platform and business model though? And whilst not a tangible benefit, the GiffGaff community is great!

However if you actually compare like for like their £15 package matches giffgaff's £15 goodybag plus each network has an added extra, gg offers a data boost after 3 purchases whilst Smarty offers an unused data discount.

I like how they claim it's a January sale when they are the standard prices. #marketing

 

Edit: I take it back, the January sale thing refers to the fact they basically have a buy one get three deal on at the minute. That's not marketing that's an excellent deal.

@davidevans0000 giffgaff "payback" makes any network's services free of charge. That's why it needs major reform and isn't a particularly strong selling point for giffgaff network services.
