I wouldn't mind to price increase if it was matched by better performance. I joined 2012 was lured in by 7 meg data speeds on 3g.. now have 4g and get 2 to 4 meg. So I'm paying more..for worse service. .nice one giffgaff

That doesn't sound good, maybe you should shop around also. I'm not too fussed on the speed as I only use data whist mainly at work and I was quite happy with the 3G speed even though it was sluggish. But now they are forcing 4G on me and 1 GB less.

the 3g doesnt matter as 4g is better, and if your phone doesnt support 4g it will work on 3g

Yeah I know 4G is better and I do have a 4G compatible phone, the problem is giffgaffs "newer version goodybag" comes with 1 GB less, which on 4G will mean I go over my allowance costing more than £12 a month.

There's only one thing keeping me here.. not saying what it is or they will bugger it up. But seriously. . Charging more for less is a joke

I've switched to id mobile, my number is getting transferred tomorrow hopefully. The thing is I would imagine most Giffgaff customers are people like me who came to Giffgaff for their competative tariffs, and they were able to offer competative rates due to a community based customer service, but I really can't see them attracting masses of new customers when there tariffs are no longer the best. It's a shame really.
