I second that, moved parents and grandparents from Gaff Gaff to the £4 deal Plusnet offered last October and haven't looked back. Yes it's a 30 day contract but the difference in allowances and data speeds are night and day. Plusnet use EE network, rock solid 4G (where we live). I moved myself after O2 refused to let me have 4G data on my legacy SIM only deal but have since moved again to BT mobile (again on EE network) for more data per month. Giff Gaff need to Giff off
iD mobile is a cheap alternative also, which offers Wifi calling for anyone that struggles
GiffGaff was over with years ago when their data speeds became so slow that they became not fit for purpose, and their prices aren't even competitive any more. PlusNet is where it's at these days for cheapskates like me. The whole family have moved from GiffGaff to PlusNet, still paying £5 a month and getting fantastic data speeds with more texts ant minutes than we could ever use.
When their Managing Director tells consumers when questioned over poor speeds that they are helping o2 generate millions in profits to allow them to improve their network and still won’t do anything about the speeds people are getting you know they are only there for one thing. To milk the customer as much as they can get. GG customer are so loyal it’s unbelievable, even when told that by the M.D. they were still praising them only a few of us questioned why we would stay if that’s the case. I would admit before that we didn’t know how slow they were, everyone we knew was on GG. One day someone at work told me they were staying with Virgin and at the time they were getting 3G only and I said you can get 4g and cheaper prices with GG. We did a speed check and I got 2Mb the 3G got 16. From that day we left GG get up to 40 download speeds now and have tried many of the companies. We went back to GG for a month and speeds were the same.
People still use giffgaff?
