Because they are banking on the average person utilising much lesser than their data allocation. If people start using tethering then the average usage goes up and eats into their profit margins.

I recently moved from New Delhi to London and it's honestly surprising how less developed the telecom infrastructure here is and how expensive it is. There I had 100mbps up/down unlimited broadband for approx. 14 pounds a month and on mobile I had a 40GB data plan with unlimited calls and texts for 6 pounds a month with 80 Mbps 4G speeds. Here it's pretty expensive

Did you wish you got paid the same there in India as well?
That's not really a fair argument. Places like Singapore, Japan and South Korea have similar salaries to London but much faster and cheaper internet. 1gbps speeds are fairly common

No, he wishes the UK infrastructure was as good as New Delhi's.

No Bella Italia here but there is a Papa John's in Dungannon and one in Dundonald facing Asda. Although I think they are franchise owned so may not accept the Virgin rewards.

What happens after 12 months, does the price stay the same or go up to the original price?

I asked this of Tesco back when they wouldn’t allow tethering. They said they are less likely to offer tethering on unlimited data or high data contracts. Which I couldn’t get my head around. They said it’s because most browse on their phone and which has light or mobile web pages, companies didn’t like to offer tethering as you could use your phone like a data dongle which, for example, could be part of an mobile office setup with a laptop using a much higher amount of data and they as a provider / business miss out on chargeable opportunities... I only wanted to connect it to my sat nav to get traffic reports!

Use a mapping app on your phone, They're often as good as, if not better than sat navs.

Lol i just signed up last week for the 20gb @£15/month

Will see if they match it

Does anyone know if Virgin's data speeds are good when roaming in EU?
I'm on virgin now coming off EE. EE was much better on internet speed and also the calls were clearer.
Very nice dealio
I wish these MVNOs would support WiFi calling

fantastic deal
Hmmmmm, my contract with 3 just expired so tempted to go with this as it's a much better deal. Heat added.

You're right, Papa Johns in NI isn't part of the UK organisation so probably doesn't apply there. I think they operate in NI under licence. Seen this on other offers with them.
i have the 20gb for £15 (now £15.46) so i'm tempted by this. But what happens at the end of the 12 months ? does it just switch to a monthly ?
thx
I'm also on the 20gb rolling month old deal which is £15.46 a month. It doubles to 40gb, so will this deal double to 48gb? Not that I'll be needing it, just curious.

It is EE, but I heard their sims only allow speeds up to 20mb compared to EE's 60mbs. How true that is, I am not sure, but I was informed by a staff member at carphone warehouse.
No tethering allowed

Don't know if this information is of any use to anyone, but I just rang PlusNet for PAC code expecting them to try to compete with this deal (even to come close). There was no effort to negotiate at all - I quoted the deal, they said they couldn't match it and the best they could do was (I think) 15GB for £20. Shortest "retentions" call I've ever had!

Looks like every single network on Trustpilot is the same, so I don't think it matters who you go with.

All networks I've checked having shocking ratings. I've been with vodafone for few years who according to trustpilot are just as bad as Virgin but I haven't had any problems.

I'm not surprised at all. This is becoming a very sad country.
I noticed that Virgin RED is offering a 12 month SIM only contract with unlimited minutes, texts and 20GB for £15 a month
You can join Virgin Atlantic Flying club (no purchase necessary and then join Virgin RED to get this....)
