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

Came across this on MoneySavingExpert... looks pretty good to me.

Even better if your already a PLusnet customer, as they offer 4.5Gb for the £6.67, for everyone else its 4Gb for £6.67..

...or £5.67 if you are happy to use TCB. See comment 2.
...or £4.83 if you are happy to use Quidco. See comment 2

From MSE...We've blagged this Plusnet* Sim only deal with a decent allowance – plus it comes with a £40 cheque, automatically sent within 45 days.





Via our link, you'll pay £120 over the contract, but factor in the cheque and it's £80, equivalent to £6.67/mth – a cracking price, as that normally only buys you about 2GB of data.

Key Info

Cost: £10/mth
Rewards: A £40 cheque, automatically sent to you within 45 days
Contract length: 12 months
Allowance: 4GB of data, unlimited minutes & texts (existing Plusnet broadband customers can get 4.5GB)
Network: Plusnet runs off the EE network
Who can get it: New customers to Plusnet Mobile. Got Plusnet broadband? You can get the deal with 4.5GB data (slide the existing customer option to 'yes' when you click through)

What will I receive? A £40 cheque, automatically sent to you within 45 days.

If you want a cheaper price, and happy to use TopCashBack then the price reduces to £5.67

£4.83 from Quidco

Now that's a good deal! Specifically the Quidco price. I guess some people would be concerned that they might not get the cashback from a third party site like Quidco, but I'd say the slight risk is worth the saving.

Plusnet uses EE (which has the best coverage), and they allow tethering. It doesn't have many other perks (see this review), but that seems fine given the price. I'm not sure why this deal's been down-voted.

So for current Plusnet customers it's 4gb, unltd mins & texts for £6.67? Do you have a link to that? Thanks

Even though Plusnet uses the EE network I’ve found mine quite unreliable and it’s been down for a couple of hours 3 times over the last 2 months (always on a Friday), have a look on their Facebook pages for unhappy customers.
Now that GiffGaff is putting up its prices I had a look at the options for my dual SIm phone which is on GiffGaff and PlusNet. As a PlusNet Broadband user I managed to get an improved PlusNet deal (5Gb and unlimited txts and calls for £8 a month, monthly contract) just by emailing them. So as a consequence I have dropped my GiffGaff plan down to its minimum of £5 a month (soon to be £6 a month). GiffGaff will now be my backup
This should be hot, great deal. I post a lot of SIM deals & this is good value
I joined plusnet in December and since then had 3 outages! I’m waiting for my contract to end and moving to Voxi.
Both the cashbacks are for a £9 plan???? The one mentioned here is the £10 Plan. I'm a little confused.
All great til u try and end contract, I tried in December, and they were still charging me til march, then promised refund which hasn't arrived yet

Hi, the prices are for the 4gb plan . £10 is the normal price, but going though the cash back sites you are being offered this at £9, and even further reductions possible when factoring the cash back on offer.

But I understand some people are cautious when it comes to the cash back sites. At least the plus net £40 will be guaranteed.

No, just use the link above for the pkusnet cash back or the links on your preferred cash back site for the further reduced rates .

I have just tested on TopCashback and it takes you to this

Can't see why this would be so cold, even the guaranteed cashback from PlusNet is a good deal to me (£6.67). Some pointers would be good, is there a better 4Gb deal I am missing?

Also don't want to waste people's time posting future duds...

Thanks

I seriously puzzled by this, too. I'm no expert on SIM deals and maybe I just don't understand the voting system at all. It seems to me that even the basic, no-nonsense £40-back approach that makes it £6.66 a month isn't "bad" at all so why the downvotes making it cold?

If it's a "meh" deal, don't up or down it.
If it's good, up it.
But if you think it's "bad" enough to downvote it then it would be helpful - and fair - to either say why it's bad or, even better, post a link to a better one.
Think people are not reading the deal properly this should be hot.

That Quidco deal is very tempting but it presents the dilemma. Twist and use the 3rd party site and make a potential near £2pm saving on an already good deal or stick with a guaranteed payment from Plusnet.

I haven't voted but I recently left PlusNet which was £6 for either 3.5Gb or 4Gb on a month by month contract. I think people may be better going with a monthly contract rather than 12 month one and shifting to better deals with them as they come along (such as the one I had when I left). I recenty moved to a Sky 12 month contract for £5 for 8GB (and unused data rolls over for up to 3 years) which I saw on HUKD .... so far so good as no known outages. I had a couple of outages whist I was on PlusNet and my sister who is still with them couldn't make calls with them again last night.
Its not hot because the plusnet mobile network is shocking, five major outages ie no calls in or out across their entire national network for 1-3 hours in the last seven weeks. Thousands leaving, I'm one of them, they blantantly lie about the tech issues and pretend they are not happening. Don not touch them witha bargepole unless you happy having a service that is up and down like a yoyo.

Excellent, some further commentary on exactly why this is lousy and getting downvoted. I'm glad I gave Plusnet a miss now as I'm also on GiffGaff but am not going to stay with them after their price rise and was looking for another supplier.

As it happens, I've decided my usage frequency and pattern just doesn't warrant paying out monthly. I usually never use even half my relatively few minutes or meagre data allowance I get for my fiver. I, like many, am now of the mindset regarding mobile communications that I want more for less as time goes by.

GiffGaff are increasing the price and giving me more minutes - which they may or may not know is of zero value to me. I don't know if they are sending out notifications saying to some, such as me, "Hey, we're giving you more minutes!" and to others, "Hey, we're giving you more data!" based upon what they know they use the least. But maybe I'm being to cynical and suspicious. However, had they asked me, I'd have opted for more data.

So, consequently, I've grabbed some PAYG SIMs and stuck some credit on a couple. I'll use the 1p Mobile for primary calling and texts and the O2 I've got in my older phone as backup. I'll see how that goes for a few months and see how long the £20 I've got across the pair of them lasts bearing in mind I hardly ever use mobile data. Or make phone calls!

I suppose the maths and proof of concept experiment is simple. I pay GG the lowest tariff that is going up to £6/pm. If, after four months, I've still got credit on my £20 worth of SIMs then PAYG is right for my current needs. If not, I'll revert to pay monthly on the best value tariff I can find on a reliable network.

Been with Plusnet since they started never had a problem.Never had an outage that I know about.Think it depends where you are in country I know o2 have been down around here before
I put both my kids and the mrs on plusnet none of them have ever had problems only thing that is missing is wifi calling over EE
Same here, been with them for over 2 years and no problem. only things missing are wifi calling and short code messaging from banks.
