Just a heads up for fellow virginmedia customers, that they have an 12 month sim only offer that you may be happy with.
If you are with rival BT, or other, you may find similar discounted sim only contracts so worth having a look at your providers benefits.
Sign into your account using the link it put on this deal, or click on this https://store.virginmedia.com/existing-customer/my-offers/offers?
and scroll down to the mobile sim offer.
Things that attracted me apart from the best price I could find, are that it's on the EE network which happens to be the best coverage for my circumstances, and that any unused data will be automatically rolled over and added to the next months allowance.
4Gb 4G data (unused data rolled over to next month).
Unlimited data when using whatsapp and Facebook Messenger apps.
12 month contract / £96 for the year.
Calls and data allowance also applies in the EU now like all contracts.
I found this deal as a result of advice from fellow user Somnus
