As a current Virgin customer I can confirm they DO NOT throttle the data connection. I get full 4G access at 30Mbps most of the time. They use the EE network and as my job involves a lot of movement around various geographical areas/hospitals/flats/houses, etc...I can testify to the signal strength, there are many areas where Vodafone/Three have very poor or no signal yet EE is strong.

Many don't know that EE have the contract to replace the current emergency services AIRWAVES handsets soon, and this will involve a requirement for >99% national data coverage - definitely the network to go with if you want signal in hard to reach places.

I don't work for Virgin or EE (_;).

I've just moved from Virgin (3G 2GB Unlimited calls/tests for £12.50 per month) to Three (4G 4GB Unlimited calls/tests for £9 per month with £45 Cashback)

1. Virgin were not interested in keeping me and stated that once my PAC was generated, my contract would be cancelled within 30 days even if I did not use the PAC code !

2. Travelling into Waterloo from Bracknell on the train, and then onto Stratford, East London, I can testify that the signal from EE and Three were virtually identical - poor areas on EE are just as bad on Three. Strong signal areas on EE are also strong on Three.

3. My colleague with an O2 phone got much better reception on the same journey EXCEPT for the notorious Ascot through Staines trainline deadspot.

It's dangerous to generalise too much and say Vodafone/Three are poor!

From what I have seen in the areas where I have travelled and live, O2 seems to be the best BUT then they are quite expensive.

Virgin mobile uses EE???



Correct, was another Sim offer, updated, thanks

After some advice. I'm with TalkTalk mobile and love the signal - which network do they use now anyone know? It's changed this year I think for the better and I want to match it.
I have 3GB data, 1000 calls and unlimited texts which was £5.50 a month on a 12 month contract that just finished and I want something similar with maybe more data for £10 a month maximum.

Good deal if you can get a signal

good deal, will you be able to use your allowance in Europe for free ( like Three feel at home) from mid June?

yes because it is an EU law so networks have to comply

Talk Talk used to use Vodafone. I live in Newcastle and used to find there data slow

Interested to know how the 5gb roll over works...

Wonder if I can use this deal to get EE retentions to offer me an upgrade?

Joke.

heat added, good price!

good price not for me tho and if its correct that they use EE signal it will 100% be throttled

Makes what I get for £6 look dire! X)

Edit: Wonder if they'd give me this on my current one if I phoned up, only difference is that I'm on monthly rolling, but the only times I've ever changed the tariffs is during the yearly rises

Interested to know how the 5gb roll over works...


They just rang me today to explain this offer but were offering a special loyalty discount of £11 for being with Virgin Media - i kindly refused X)

In terms of the rollover, they said for this contract you get a total rollover of 3gb, so say you only used 2GB from your total 5GB in the first month, the next month your total allowance would be 8GB (5gb + 3GB month).

Will there be any deals for more data?

I recently moved from vodafone to ee and have to say i wish I'd stay with vodafone. Even though their cs dept not the best they did pay compensation for all errors they have the best network in my opinion. Well in London anyway.

Been with ee they have excellent cs offered my a booster signal right away. And another one too don't ask how I got it. But still find messages on my phone saying trying to call me etc. Only moved to ee thinking they were the best.

​30mbps on full 4g? That's a joke right? I get like 70mbps+ on three.

Same for me, Vodafone was better

30 Mbps is a bit slow for EE though. I'm in London and get 4G speeds over 100Mbps very regularly.

well got there £11 deal last month and now they gave me a surprise this month, annual price rise as 3.1%. so do not expect £140 a year

I'm already getting 5000 minutes unlimited text and 6gb data for £9 a month

70mbps+ on three must be a joke. I've never got more than 20 Mbps, average is less than 15mbps

Does this allow tethering?

My new contract starts tomorrow. It 6gb for £11 on a 12 month contract were only 2gb rooms over. Is that as good as this?

Officially no tethering but you can tether they won't bother you talking from experience

Well, T-Mobile as it was known at the time of Virgin's offering ...

Virgin Mobile have piggybacked via T-Mobile since day 1. :-)

I wish I'd come across the OP's offer before? (like a few months back?).

I've already hooked up an earlier HUKD Network 3 SIM only offer! (similar to this one ... )

Ahhhhhhhh well?. :-)

You forget, London is the UK's 'heart'?.

It would be like adding the addition of London's equivalent of America's Wall Street to say Portsmouth or something? (no offense to anyone living them sides like?), and expecting it to perform in the same league (in 100% each and every way) as that of it's London counterpart or something?, and ...

London is overpopulated not just with people, basically?.

Talk talk still use the Vodafone network with the long running saga of them moving to 02. Personally I think every network will have areas were the coverage maybe poor or non existent. Can't complain about the Vodafone network although as mentioned prior the customer service is dreadful.
This seems like a decent deal though.
