This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I hope this helps someone. I'm already with Virgin Mobile and, as my wife's mobile contract has come to end with BT and the upgrades BT were offering were rubbish. Anyway, the best thing about this deal is that you can get £22 back through Quidco.

I think this is the first deal I've posted, so If I've made some mistakes please don't be too harsh. Thanks

Smarty 30gb for a tenner, voxi 8gb but currently unlimited for many for a tenner are other options if you can get three and Vodafone signal both on 30 day contracts. Check for cash back Smarty had been £30 on TCB recently.

Looks like it's std rate £22 but maybe £67 limited offer ?
It's a bit confusing, anyone any ideas which it is ?

I'd have a go at the "need help" button, see what they advise, also save your own screenshot as evidence should you have to make a claim for missing cashback from Quidco.

"Up to £67" for all deals, so it will be the £27 that tracks.

I’ve noticed I’ve got unlimited data on Voxi when I only pay for 20GB, do you know why they’re giving unlimited data to us?

It’s been mentioned on threads and I checked with them a couple of weeks ago but decided to go to Smarty instead. According to what’s been said they currently cannot monitor what people are using, been like this since August and customers were supposed to get texts. Rumour has it it will be like that for a couple of more months but web chat simply told me they had no timeline.
500 minutes? What pointless restriction

I'm sure it's a great deal for the customer but surely a mobile company that can't even monitor the data their customers are using can't be very reliable in the long term?

Yep i've been on the £10 Voxi plan since July and my data has been unlimited since August but I don't know if everyone else is the same, also I've recommended Voxi to quite a few people with my referal code and they have got a free £10 Amazon voucher on their second month of being a customer.
From July 2020 (and every July after that) your airtime plan will increase by the Retail Price Index (RPI) rate of inflation announced in April of that year. We’ll give you 30 days’ notice of the exact increase
Great offer!

I have just ordered my Sim Card. I got a £2 discount as I already have an unlimited Sim with VM via Ultimate Oomph (Quidco tracking at £200 and £125 Shopping Voucher)
Fingers crossed Quidco tracks at £67!
Got this deal yes there are bigger data deals out there for similar money but Virgin speeds are way better then any of the others for a fact!

Smarty/3 are terrible in London.

They are owned by Vodafone so make up your own mind later this year early next Virgin will be using the Vodafone network.

Isn't Smarty owned by Three?

Also Virgin's current contract with BT doesn't end till late 2021.

Would agree with this. I got the unlimited data sim bundled with the VM ultimate Oomph package (enabling me to cancel my 32 quid/mth Vodafone 50GB SIM deal) and was sceptical about the performance I would get. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating Here's a speedtest I did in a park on the outskirts of Sheffield a few days ago

And, if this review is correct, VM have a higher speed cap than even BT's 'extra speed' service. the same BT who just happen to actually own EE!


Of course, the fastest speeds will be restricted to the major UK cities, but even outside those you shouldn’t get a slow connection. The only thing to note is that, while EE’s fastest 4G+ services reach speeds of 90Mbits/sec, Virgin’s are limited to a slower 70Mbits/sec, which is still ahead of other networks, including BT Mobile’s 60Mbits/sec Extra Speed.

Plusnet 10 for 10 same network.



Same network but don't use 4G+ tech like Virgin do so reportedly potentially quite a lot slower.

Even though Plusnet say they have no active speed caps, we do expect their top speeds to be limited by the fact they don't use speed-boosting 4G+ technology. We expect top speeds around the 40 Mbps mark.

Yep smarty owned by three, voxi the one we were talking about is owned by Vodafone , wasn’t sure of the date and didn’t have time to check, thought it was late this year but you are right it’s end of 2021.

Wonder what’s stopping me going on the lowest tarrif if everybody is getting unlimited? Seems unfair everybody is paying different amounts but getting the exact same
Just for clarification reason, it's 5000 minutes of calls. Not 500.

Because I am Pathetic.

Good deal don't forget the family pack, each additional sim will get a £2 discount, I'm paying £37 for 5 of these sims, all capped with £0 so perfect for kids to use
