Not a freebie, as you have to pay more for 4g Sim only plans. Existing 3g sim onlt customers have to move to a more expensive plan if they want the same data allowance in 4g.

Cold spoke to adviser if u move to 4g plan u will loose the 0870 calls because they stop doing this

It would appear these new tariffs no longer include calls to 0845 and 0870 numbers either as well as putting the prices up to take the 4G aspect.

​no it's the same!

Will ring them up tomorrow and see if I get a good deal

Any carried over data only lasts for a month and expires on the next billing cycle, irrespective of whether it is used or not. Promotional data (such as the double data deal) cannot be carried over.

Also, inclusive calls to 08 numbers have been removed and are not included in any of the 4G plans.

Maximum 4G speeds is limited to only 25 Mbps d/l. I'm currently getting 20 Mbps on my current Virgin 3G plan on speedtest. No tethering still.

The 4G plans are more expensive than the 3G ones, just checked through my account.

All in all, effectively feels like a downgrade for more money!

Still shoddy tariffs

Monthly cost Minutes Texts 4G data
£6 300 Unlimited 300MB
£9 1500 Unlimited 1GB
£12 2500 Unlimited 2GB
£15 2500 Unlimited 4GB
£25 5000 Unlimited 20GB

I won't be upgrading. IMHO 4G is pointless with such low data limits as it's only going to help you burn through that data faster, which is probably exactly what the operator wants. The minimum should be 1GB, there shouldn't even be a 300MB tier, you could easily use that in a couple of days these days, even simple web pages guzzle data faster than ever with video advertising and the like.

It's like having a really thick hose (plenty of bandwidth) but only a cup of water to put down it (data)...
