Hi, I have got sick of 3 and Vodaphone and their hidden charges and poor service regarding the use of my dongle 

I have opted for the £25 all ways on option,  have any of you guys got good or bad opinions of this bundle ?  I use my laptop  24/7 as I'm disabled housebound and   the internet is my only source of  communication with the outside world and my library of information and entertainment,  I don't watch videos online only browse and play games really so I hope 20 GB per month will be ample .

Hi @hockers62 .Welcome to giffgaff, you have chosen wisely, 20gb should be plenty for browsing etc,but online gaming may eat into that 20gb pretty fast .

@hockers62 welcome! 🍪🍩☕️, 

the £25 always on goodybag is giffgaffs biggest bundle, please note it's not intended for a replacement for wifi/home broadband 

With the £25 'Always On' goodybag you get 20GB of data at full 4G speed.

After 20GB 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.

There's no unlimited data with giffgaff here's a guide to the £25 'always on' goodybag (click handy links if roaming)!


There is a traffic flow policy on this goodybag and using too much data or patterns of heavy data usage which may impact other users may result in a a warming first .... and then a ban (usually 3 months) from buying this particular goodybag (you would be able to buy other goodybags though) you said that you think it may be ample as you do not use data hungry apps, so you should be absolutely fine, 🙂 but fior the traffic flow policy have a quick read here.
