VOXI - unlimited social data (WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, etc) and unlimited UK calls and texts from £10

I wasn't considering the service as "Free social anything" automatically means mass datamining and probable shreddage of the GDPR, but I would be very interested to find out how they can be allowed to have an age-based restriction in view of the Equality Act 2010 obliging that discriminating against any "Protected Characteristic" (Which - By virtue of the fact the subject cannot change theirs, as found in a recent Dutch court case - Must include Age) is unlawful? :/
Voxi is at present only available to those aged 30 and under and thus is a niche product rather than a mass market product.
No offence but comparing a Pay&Go+bundles offering to Pay Monthly Sim Only (30 days or not)? Really?
The only valid comparison is that to Smarty. With Smarty you are essentially paying £5 for unlimited calls and texts + £1.25 for each GB of data.
So, 4GB of data - £10 on giffgaff and Smarty
5GB of data - £12 on giffgaff, £11.25 on Smarty
9GB of data - £15 on giffgaff, £16.25 on Smarty.
For heavier data users - giffgaff is better value.
But Smarty refunds for unused data.
But giffgaff gives payback.
Swings and roundabouts.
But please - do not compare offers from different markets (PayM and Pay&Go).
@glaswegianeric and giffgaff market themselves as SIM only provider, what's your point?
Marketing is just bull**bleep**, if Voxi is listed as a separate entity at Companies House then it's a separate network/company, if it's not, it's a package.

ThunderDragon it is a Vodafone plan one of many available, they just target that particular plan at the under 30s, (used to be under 25s), rather than a separate MNVO, (so I've been told).
@thunderdragon it is the same way a ton of other companies have different products and rates for people of different ages.
If caught people are most likely to be offered an alternative Vodafone product be it a contract or PAYG, if the customer refuses then they are likely to be disconnected for breaching the terms and conditions.
All perfectly legal.
I'm not gonna argue semantics with you @glaswegianeric
I've demonstrated that Voxi is not a separate legal entity from Vodafone. What you choose to do with that information is entirely your own choice.
Fine, then ageist you are as you are not just offering concessions to a certain age group but refusing a certain age group service altogether.
They don't do this Eric, they have a range of products available which people not eligible for the Voxi package can take up at any time, subject to status.
I know it's fashionable to hate on Vodafone but lets not just make things up.
