    For the first time ever I found myself actually needing a SIM only contract deal as I’ve been spending a lot on data now I can get out and about in the car.

    I am currently on 3 PAYG and that was great, now my data use has increased a lot I went looking for some deals. Virgin Media have a nice offer for plenty of minutes and texts (not important really but nice) and 5GB data for £9 and I was tempted but 3 have an offer through Topcashback for 8GB data, all you can eat texts and 600 minutes for £12 and £50 cash back so effectively £7.83 a month and that includes a 12GB hotspot  allowance and Go Binge, so unlimited Netflix anywhere for £0 as long as you have some data allowance left.

    As a bonus I can run both sims in my OnePlus 5T while I await for my number and credit to switch over to the new contract. 😀

    Good deals take some digging out though with some you need to watch the small print. I now have more monthly data than I will use in a year or two for a pleasingly low price. This time I have nearly reach 100Mb, what a surprise it has never been so high before. The difference is you can get out and about I guess.

    I’m still on unlimited data with 3 – £25/month (had to commit to a year, now it is rolling monthly). I do a lot of streaming outside the “binge” allowance, including from my own home set up (HDD on my router). Its dear but I’m often north of 30GB data in a month and like the peace of mind of not worrying about it. the 4G is way better than WiFi in most places I go as well.

    I think 3 are the only mob to offer unlimited (without throttling) now. Overkill for most  probably….and I keep my eyes and ears open for something better.

    I usually find that Three have the best deals for data.

    The only downside I’ve found with Three so far is the app. It’s probably because we’ve got two numbers on the account and kept our old numbers, but the app doesn’t want to update my details. We’ve had our first bills through, but the app keeps telling me that it can’t do anything until they’ve been produced. Not the end of the world, but a bit annoying.

    The app had an update yesterday, for me anyway. Hopefully it’ll be better now. It was shockingly bad, used to take an age to update, if it did at all!

    Force stopping it can help, reinstalling is another option that has helped me in the past.

    I’m sure 3 have a sister, or a piggy back service that launched late last year, that undercut giff gaff, for the life of me i can’t recall its name. Maybe Pure? Maybe worth a look. I’m sure it was some one here brought it to our attention. So they may jump it.

     

    Update Smarty its called, by three.

    It was me that pointed out Smarty, I looked at it yesterday but the three deal is better for me.

    Plusnet are using EE and their prices are actually cheaper for the same deals. Go figure that one!
