Sky definitely has it too as my sister is with sky mobile and has it. I guess, back to o2 I go.

In South Wales, they've improved their 3G and 4G network massively thanks to the joint venture they have with O2 (Cornerstone). While EE is still better here (pretty much blanket 4G coverage everywhere), Vodafone's network is actually good enough now that I am considering switching from BT Mobile. I would NEVER have said that 2 years ago.


Have Vodafone improved over the last few years then? Our company phones were with them for a few years and service/reception/signal was terrible, particularly in rural and even semi-rural areas. Managed to convince them to change and we've with EE for the last 5-years or so and had no problems. Based on that, I wouldn't go anywhere near them - it was useless. So I'm surprised to see positive comments - unless of course these comments are from people that don't travel to semi-rural areas? Genuinely interested to know if things have changed.


strangely I've had the opposite experience, where I am three gets the best signal and the fastest speeds. I switched to EE because I was told how great their speeds are but I rarely get more than 10mb and with three I used to get 50mb pretty consistently. Oh and I briefly switched to vodafone but they were absolutley shocking getting less than 1mb in many places

The reviews for Virgin Mobile are terrible! Is it that bad? - Update: I took the 45GB offer and so far so good!


Tempted for this or a plusnet mobile deal, any suggestions? Live in Sheffield and it says good 4g coverage..


when does this virgin offer expire? My one final month with EE starts on 17th May. I am currently on 2GB with 500min for £8.66 with EE. This Virgin offer is much better. How should I approach getting the better offer with Virgin and keep my number? Thanks


i got this one recently and i was told the data rollsover over but resets to 5gb after 3 months. thats what he told me in store. but tbh on phone i was getting lots of misinformtion on the sales phone line. virgin need to sort that out. also like u can go up and down if an even better deal comesout or u need more data very flexible and u still stay in ur original original 12 month date.


Already had a sim only from virgin, 5*1GB (5GB total, with 1 gb data rollover) for 8 pounds, so I've upgraded to this for an extra pound. Makes it worthwhile to potentially have 10gb - my usage is so variable.

Sorry to hear that :(


I'll definitely be calling PlusNet to match this, or I'll be on my merry way. Previous network was Three so no issues with their coverage. id are a bit rubbish when it comes to customer service, but aside from having to port my number or leave, I've never had reason to call CS lines so.....


I just got off the phone from Plusnet, all they offered me was the £15 contract with £5 credit on my account for two months. All the guy was going on about was the fact iD use three's signal and they use EE which is a 'more premium' network. I told him my other contracts are on the so called inferior network and i'll be taking my PAC code. He didn't seem particularly interested in keeping me as a customer.


Are you able to port your old EE number


I'm On 6gb £10 now, called them, been given 2 options, they would credit £10 and leave contract as it is now or same deal they offered you so £15 for 12gb and and £10 for 2 months only. I refused both..

It’s red entertainment don’t worry it says so on my invoice


Where does it say that this is red entertainment? I assume I'm being a dumb ass


Ok people, I've gone for this and have ordered a sim in my wife's name as I am with vodafone and fail the credit check if I order in my own name. Once the order is confirmed I will port out of vodafone. Can someone advise me on which payg network to port to? Ideally one that doesn't require a big top up to activate. I can then port back out onto this vodafone plan once my wife receives the sim. Cheers


Are you sure? I don’t trust there website but it seems to imply roaming is included


Maybe a stupid question, but my current contract with Vodafone runs until the start of July this year I think. Can I buy one of these now, and hold onto it without starting the 12 month contract until my current one expires? Or does the contract start when I receive it?

Aye, in fairness I hadn't seen that deal. Had it been posted when I posted this?


For £3 more you can get Spotify Premium and 50% more data so comparatively this is poor. But if you don't need those extras ....


Vodafone slightly more than plans on three EE O2 over the years, only downside to voda in the past is the limited 3rd party networks, Tesco gifgaf are an excellent choice over the years on the o2 network, plus net on the EE and many others out there.. and have sen some decent offers on these but limited on voda.. This Cash back deal is good, Also check out voxi 4gb for £10 And unlimited social.. yeah it's for under 30s but they don't age check and it's rolling 30days.. Good thing about voda unlike other networks for us.. free data in turkey where as others charge.


I had to laugh at this.... It's an awful company because you decided to stick with them for 15 years and you never did a comparison in all that time... Really?


I moved from 3 to Vodafone as Voda was the only company with signal where I live. Voda costs more than 3 would cost me. The 4G speed is far better on Voda. Only problem is that Voda’s customer service is absolutely dire.

Yes I’m sure. I’ve tried to tether and it doesn’t allow it.


Yes. That’s true. Also, my new plan doesn’t state it has Hotspot in the title although it does include it. The operator told me he’s putting me on an older plan where it’s included but doesn’t feature it in the name.


Are you sure you have no hotspot included? Hotspot used to be unlimited, up until they axed the One Plan.

Is it 12 month contract?


anyone recommend some deals i am looking for 10 to 20Gb of data


Lol :)


In all honesty, My view is totally opposite. Was with them a few years back and the only time I had to reach to them was when a mast near my house went on the blink i think and their wifi calling app (they didn't have native wifi calling back then). They kept calling to see if things were ok but it just never went back to normal and I just cancelled. Just one of them things... ive now gone back to them due to good deals and now native wifi calling and the service does what I need. Have found their CS to be assistive. I always have 30 day deals and Find it to be a good incentive for them to keep your business but when stress

Look very good for £27/m and S9, Currently i have Sim only £15 contract for 20G, unlimted min & text from last year which 12m finished in february 18. they have increase the cost to £17.xx (annoyed). haven't found many good deal and my phone still going strong (OnePlus One). It was £35/m but they give £20/m loyalty discount Again, i. could not find any good deal for sim only (less thatn £15/m) for same allowance.. Btw, what is 4GEE MAX, mine is 4GEE plan


So mate on your screenshots it shows your device is an iphone 6. Also how did you get your loyalty discounts? Is it like friends and family or something. My plan has discounts but I am being told that I wont be able to get these discounts carried over. Can you show you have the s9+ on this plan as ee claim that they would not have gave you this deal on a new phone like s9 and my thing is to fight and get similar deal lol.

Currently pay £18.15 per sim for unlim mins, texts and 25gb on EE Max plan,free EU calls and texts and 15gb free EU data. Best they offered was 20gb for £18 why she thought that was a good deal compared to what I already get is beyond me or 40gb for £20 which isnt that bad but i'm happy with 25gb but want to reduce the monthly payments and want to keep the max speed


I just managed to get this deal by mentioning the virgin deal. Heat from me.


If you are not on the max plan, can you not just enable it via Go Faster for additional £2 per month?


Took this out last year when they first launched 40gb I ve rented the sim out until my EE contract finishes which is next month so will be hoping both my lines

Agree on the coverage, mine isn't great where I am, seems worse than my other phone using Vodafone. I've been with them around 3 months, on a 30 day contract, but I had run out of data (was 3.5 GB). Called up to say I had run out and probably needed to cancel, straight away was offered: Unlimited texts Unlimited minutes 6gb data £10 a month on 30 day contract Looking to move off Plusnet, just purely because of the coverage but I can't fault it as a service. My voicemail seems to be okay (as far as I know!), I get notifications through. Edit: The phone call to Plusnet was last week.

3,000 minutes Unlimited texts 6GB of Data ONLY £13 a month (INCLUDING £20 Argos E-gift card)
Get dealGet deal

I signed up to a £10 a month 30 day contract with Plusnet, received the £20 Argos voucher after about a month.


I see reasonable terms, not strings. All purchases (other than 14day cancellations) will result in obtaining £20 egift card within 15 - 45days of contract initiation, even if you give notice to terminate the contract on the same day as buying. The obligation is to pay no less than £13, have a credit check performed, and use the voucher within 12months of issue. No obligation to use the SIM.


Thank you. This is the important bit. Strings attached.


From t&c: To qualify, your SIM Only contract must still be active after the 14 day cooling off period has expired. The Argos E-gift card will be sent within 30 days of this date... E-gift cards expire 12 months after issue.


Minimum contract term is 30 days, so if you only want the service for a month you must provide Plusnet with your notice to cancel on the day you buy.

I'm on their £5 2.25GB deal - no complaints really. They were a bit vague about the number port - app just said request had been made. Happened about 2 or 3 working days after initial request & got texts on the day only to say it was happening. Bar that, they've been fine when I called (sounded South African to me) and no great language barriers.


Heat but the £20 20GB Unlimiteds deal is the winner really


Just make you aware the data roaming often doesnt work apart from Ireland and it had to be manualy done. Had made several complains and they have never sorted it out, many thread on forums about it. Eventualy had to switch to other network.


I want to go with them and just waiting for my PAC code now from Three as I'm paying £12 for 8GB/600 mins and when I quoted this deal all they managed to offer was 8GB/unl mins for £13 which is useless to me. Does anyone know when this deal ends or should I just not take any chances and buy it now and port in my number later when I get my PAC code? Thanks.
