ASDA mobile 30-day Xmas bundle - unlimited minutes/texts + 20 GB (3G) £10

Found 4th Nov 2016Made hot 4th Nov 2016
I ordered and just received a SIM from Asda to use for 1 month while I am here. I had previously intended to opt for a £10 bundle of 1.5 GB and 600 mins plus texts, however I just noticed they have added a 30-day Xmas bundle with 20 GB and unlimited minutes/texts. Yes it's only 3G but still a bargain as a temporary solution and much more than they usually offer. Hope someone finds it useful.
Despite what it says on some pages at the site you need to text "MEGA" and not "MEGA 10".

Great deal may take one myself

Is this for one month only or does it continue as long as you pay your £10

it would be hard to use up all 20GB on 3g

3G data on Asda (EE) is painfully slow, however it is useable but would rather 10GB 4G data. Still good price IMHO

It really wouldn't.

Really? Good deal.

People, depending on what type of 3G Asda uses will determine the speed of the connection. 3G can hit speeds faster than Home broadband . I've seen 3G hit 20mpbs which is quick and very usable.

This is providing they have Hsdpa (I believe that's it), then the speeds will be good.

It's a one month deal but presumably will run for another month as Christmas is still a long way off. There is no obligation to renew. As I said the usual deal is only 600 mins and 1.5 GB and you can elect to autorenew. 20 GB and unlimited mins for me will be overkill but it's still the same price so took it anyway. Agree if you can get 10 GB on 4G plus unlimited minutes at £10 it's probably a better option but for the moment doesn't appear to be available anywhere without being tied in for a longer period.

Is tethering possible?


In theory I believe so, I just tried and was able to connect my laptop however it appears that the data connection is not working. No sign of a 3G or any other connection and Internet not working on the phone. The text I received said everything would work immediately. Looks like I will have to call them tomorrow to find out what is going on. My father is sitting next to me with an EE 4G connection that is working so something is not right. Will report back ASAP.

Anyone on Asda Mobile able to run a speed test and advise what kind of speed you get on EE, through this Virtual network?

I know some of the virtual networks using 3G on EE cap their speed at something stupid like 1-2mbps.

I am very interested! I am shortly finishing my 2 year contract on T-Mobile which is unlimited 3G via the EE network. My speed seems to be capped at about 6-7mbps and more than good enough for browsing, YouTube (in HD) and streaming music.

As I took a phone out on my contract back then I am paying £30+ a month and just want to go to SIM Only now, Spoken to T-Mobile/EE and will not offer me a discounted rate to do SIM Only on T-Mobile. But reluctant to pay £25+ a month to switch to EE on 4G when I don't need that, for a SIM Only contract, but use about 10-14GB a month.

Never thought I would be switching to Asda PAYG, but this is the best deal by far for someone like me that fits my needs and EE signal where I am is excellent.

​Are you being serious?

not a bad deal

Can anyone compare between Asda and life mobile?
Also is this only for 30 days then goes up in price, or is this a permanent deal?

I checked out the problem and indeed found that for some reason the APN was down as Virgin Media, after entering the correct settings the 3G+ is now working and so is tethering.

You do get 25Mbps on EE 3G speed, not slow compare to crappy Vodafone, O2, Giff Gaff Naff Naff...

Thank You!

Just wondering - as this is an Asda xmas deal, does anyone out there have ideas as to whether other companies will also be doing similar deals ?
I get brilliant O2 and BT reception 3G, T-Mobile varies, vodaphone useless, EE not sure if it's the same as T-Mobile or not...... so I don't want to fork out for an unproven connection, if other operators usually offer similar deals so as not to lose market share.

An Asda sim should work as well as a BT one, they both use EE's network.

can we stay on the deal beyond christmas??

would this sim work as a data sim in a tablet?
seems to me that 20gb for £10 is a pretty good deal.....

You can order the SIM for free on the Asda Mobile website without having to make a payment/top-up!

Why don't you order the SIM and put it into your phone and just see what kinda signal comes up on the phone. You could also just call customer service from the SIM for free without topping up and make some excuse for calling, atleast while talking to them you will see what the call quality is like, before you commit any money!

Anyone else have trouble in not able to use snapchat on iphone 5?

Good deal, shame the Asda phone signal is rubbish where I live

you're joking right?

Not necessarily I know that Giffgaff and Tesco were both on o2 and GG was much worse . Will depend on their deals with EE

I think this is a 30 day only offer, then it drops to:
1.5GB data
600 minutes
Unlimited text

Is this payg?
