I have just re joined after leaving three but a whille back thay made some major

changes to there addons one of the things thay did was to add unlimited internet as well as mins and texts for

£35.00 per month whille GGs offer of always on data for £25.00 is a good one it is in danger of being out mached by three

even if GG don.t want to mach three thay might want to thing about incrcing the 20GB limit to 40GB or even 50GB

in order to stay competative.

Hi @train63

Giffgaff do change goodbag and update the packages as they have done recently with the free 1gb data on £10 and above deals but I can say that unlimited will never return to giffgaff .

Maybe bigger gb bags but sadly unlimited is a no no

Hello giffgaff ended unlimited data in 2015 ,

the always on was increased last year to 20gb at full speed then from 8am to midnight speed is reduced to 384kbps 


prior to that you got 9 gb at full speed then reduced to i think 256kbps 

so it’s unlikly to return to unlimited or even increase it 


they just don’t have enough data to offer unlimited without it slowing other users down ,


giffgaff from the time  I have been here set their own prices without bothering what other networks do ,


its fine as it is

As far as I can see you get unlimited data, on a contract with three, for £20 a month.

That is a contract though, it will always be cheaper than PAYG or 30 day sim only. That 3 deal is good though, if you live in a good 4g reception area it is feasible to replace your home broadband - it should be quicker than fibre.

I am sure giffstaffers are more than aware of what the competition are offering.  You are quite right, there are some cracking deals out there, but they are often short term offers to get people onboard.


For example, at present, Three have a 12 month sim only deal offering unlimited everything for £20 per month.  I am sure this wil go back up in price once they have sold enough sims. giffgaff do not seem to do these promotional sales sim deals, and rightly so in my opinion (otherwise they would have lots of members on different rates for the same product.

I've never liked the always on goodybag so have never bought it.
I agree Giffgaff offers are looking less competitive now and I'm sure they are aware of this themselves.
Maybe goodybags will be revamped again soon Smiley Wink
