@siiei92
giffgaff allow tethering(personal hotpot) across all goodybags including the £25 always on goodybag. However, with the always on goodybag once you used up the first 20GB data you can continue tethering but, will be subject to the traffic flow policy.

Complete details on the tethering policy can be found here https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Learning-and-giffgaffer-articles/Tethering-policy/ta-p/7816336

With all but the £25 goodybag your tethering is only restricted to how much data you have.

On the £25 goodybag you can tether up to 20GB after that your data will be throttled.

@siiei92 hi, do remember that tethering your laptop will use a lot of data if you plan to access lots of information as the sites you will be visiting are not mobile versions and will be much larger in file size as they download
