For £1 more I'd rather get this from the same company (5GB data/unlimited mins and texts). Just a couple of days to go though

isn't this outfit just BT in disguise?
Plusnet use ee network and I'm having to leave them after a few months because of no indoor coverage, which they admit in my area. Hot if you can get ee coverage.

Very tempted to change to this Plusnet deal, if Plusnet/EE are reliable. I'm currently on the giffgaff £10 goodybag (2GB data/500 mins/ultd texts).

​ unfortunately giffgaff has lost it's edge and the data speed is abysmal!
other than the known issue with short text message, this will be tempting for giffgaff customers.

thanks, i may well take that up, im paying £10 to giffaff for 2GB of data, 500minutes of calls, but free giffgaff to giffgaff (which is the bulk). if this is completely unlimited, and the data is that big, im well happy.
Is this a rolling 30 day contract, meaning I can cancel the direct debit at any time? Don't want to get tied into a 12 month contract. Any help much appreciated

Moved all 5 of us from Giffgaff to plusnet and it's so lovely to get propper 4G speeds.

I have a dual sim phone with giffgaff and a similar deal to this from EE.

Like most networks it varies between the two which has the better coverage depending on where you are, what I would say though is that my EE sim gives faster speeds than my GiffGaff one, but it all depends on what coverage is like in your area.

This is an irritating problem with EE.

Compared to Vodafone for example, indoor coverage with EE is often very poor even when the outdoor coverage is better.

I've noticed this in my own home (middle of a well served town with the EE transmitter two minutes walk away and excellent outdoor coverage) and also on trains where the EE signal is nearly unusable.

I'm sure this is to do with the frequency used by EE in such cases.

It is definitely something to be aware of and it can be a big disappointment.
Good bye GiffGaff i'v swapped and not looked back loads quicker data and get it in more places
Maybe I'm being unfair, but as soon as I see adverts for the likes of Plusnet and EE, I immediately think "Dodgy!".
With Plusnet and have been for several years (was previously Life Mobile etc) and would recommend providing you get good coverage.

4G speeds are good, customer service has always been good (only used a few times to change packages over the years)

Genuine question but why ?
It's just the perception of companies like Plusnet and EE. In the past, you hear stories of how their coverage is not that good. Reminds me of T-Mobile. They don't seem to be as trustworthy and reliable as established companies like O2 and Vodafone. And their adverts appear cheap and tacky, which doesn't help.

I don't have any complaints with my 4G speed on giffgaff if I'm honest, but I rarely do any video streaming or anything when I'm out and about. When I'm at home I'm on wifi so 4G is irrelevant. I think getting 5GB data with Plusnet for the same price as 2GB with giffgaff is worth moving provider though, regardless of speed. Means I won't have to think about my data allowance ever again.
Please be aware that Plusnet do not support calls or texts to short code numbers.

You should go for it I have 2 sim only contract from Plusnet and I don't have any issues. But make sure you have good EE coverage in your area.

Don't forget this deal. Couple of differences, its a 12 month contract, but you get 'feel at home' in 60 countries, its unlimited calls and text. It includes 'go binge', gives you unlimited data with certain streaming providers which could be very handy for some people.

I would suggest ignore the cashback, go through tcb or quidco if you like, worth a try.

No, this is one of those 30 day sim contracts which last 12 months.

Come on Jess Yes it's a 30 day rolling contract, for sure.
I switched from giffgaff to life as it then was (now plusnet). My lunch time download speed went from around 0.1 mb per sec to 8.0mb!

I highly recommend them!

Just signed up for this deal. The extra 1Gb of data & unlimited calls/texts isn't a deal breaker for me, as I'm more interested in the data than the calls.

I'm currently paying Vodafone £20 pcm for 1Gb data, 500 mins, unlimited txts. So this is a no brainer really.

Am I bothered about it not working indoors? Not really it stops work calling me asking me if I'd like to work my day off.

Wasn't any hassle for me. Already with plus net for my dads contract and wanted to upgrade to the £10 plan.

They sent a new sim in the post as previous plan/sim was 3g only. When new sim arrived I got in touch with them and they moved number over and new plan started within 2 hours

I'm on Ee have the same problems but free wi-fi calling solves this issue if you have a compatible handset unfortunately I switched from a nexus 5x which had wi-fi calling to a huawei p9 lite which doesn't needless to say I will make sure my next handset does support wi-fi calling

But you should check if in your area you can get EE signal as not having signal you be saying how rubbish plusnet is and Internet is so slow....don't matter about the price you need to get a decent signal price comes next...not price then signal.

When you say no indoor coverage, do you just mean in your own home due to a poor signal, or are you saying there is no cover in any building. I have been with EE (previously Orange) and I travel to various places every day with no problems mostly. EE generally has good coverage.

Moved all of us to the 5gb/£10 deal and it's been great. The only thing it needs to make it perfect is Wi-Fi calling which is withheld for some reason.

All that link shows is which main networks the smaller networks use for their infrastructure, not who owns them.

For example, EE is actually owned by BT, and Virgin runs on EE, but is obviously not owned by either EE or BT.
