I am just wondering if gaffgaff were going to up the minutes on all the goodybags.

Got a ad before from Virgin Mobile and for £15 they are offering 800 minutes and unlimited texts!

 

That's a considerable amount more than giffgaff!

I know it doesn't include internet but not everyone uses it.

 

Give us your thoughts or if giffgaff have mentioned this?

Why is this a Top Tip?

Also that deal with virgin is a 12 month contract - which gg don't do, they compete with the 30-day rolling market!

It should be noted that the 800 min deal is a 12 month contract

A better comparison would be the 30 day rolling contract for £15.32 giving 500 mins / ultd (not really) texts / 1gb web

Its a 12 month contract so no comparisons can really be made as GG is PAYG

Giffgaff is Pay As You Go not contract. Virgin "claim" that you get unlimited texts but a cap is in place so technically you don't get unlimited

Think youl find any sim only deals with just minutes and texts will always beat giffgaff. So if you dnt use the internet and use a regular large ammount of minutes and texts youl find better deals elswhere. Mind you that virgin deal is a 12 month one so its an unfair comparison

Also on that Virgin deal you don't get free calls/texts/video calls to the same network unlike giffgaff
