Hi @andiimcm

Giffgaff don't do unlimited mobile data. The £20 always on goodybag gives you 9GB of UK data at full 4G speeds and once you used up the 9GB then you will continue to get unlimited data allowance at a reduced speed (384KB) from 8am to midnight. From midnight to 7.59am you have an unlimited data allowance at full speed.

For more information on the £20 always goodybag please check out this https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Using-giffgaff/Guide-to-Always-On/ta-p/17070641 knowledge base link.

Hi there .
The £20 always on goodybag is designed to give you peace of mind that you'll always have access to data. It gives you 9GB of UK data at full 4G speeds and once you used up the 9GB then you will continue to get unlimited data allowance at a reduced speed (384KB) from 8am to midnight. From midnight to 7.59am you have an unlimited data allowance at full speed.

384kbps after you have used 9GB of data is quite slow. Also be aware of the Traffic Flow Policy which could affect you if you are a high data user. Mobile data is meant to replace your home broadband.

 

Always On data
With Always On you get 9GB of data at full 4G speed. After 9GB of data used you'll experience a reduced data speed of 384kbps from 8am to Midnight. You may notice that activities which require high amounts of data, like HD video streaming, will be slower.

Traffic Flow Policy
In order to protect the experience of our members when they are using data on giffgaff, we have introduced some measures, which we call Traffic Flow. This article explains these measures, how they will improve the experience for the majority of members and how you can avoid negatively impacting the data experience for other giffgaff members.
