Sim only providers – who's least pants?
Virgin coverage is good Giff gaff used to be the cheapest but i found the coverage patchy and the use of other services bandwidth meant if you are somewhere busy – a festival for example- it did not work as I guess they get less referential treatmentPosted 4 months ago
That said it still seems to be good if you never go anywhere rural.
Time has come to leave Vodafone. First thought is that I can pick anyone as things can’t get any worse.
Had an ID Mobile SIM once but it didn’t work here so I assume nothing from Three will work.
Seems EE will work. Any reason to choose Plusnet over Virgin or the other way around? Anyone else to consider? A few hundred minutes and 2Gb of 4g should do it so should be able to get that for a tenner a month or less.Posted 4 months ago
Thanks all. I’ve decided to give Plusnet a try. It’s a rolling monthly contract that gives me a bit more than I need, all fot £7 a month. Provided they’re not muppets, I can’t go wrong.
Just be aware they don’t allow texting to shortcode SMS which some banks, NHS services, charities and others use for confirmations/donations etc.Posted 4 months ago
Wow, didn’t know that. Not sure how often I use them though.
Not many do. I only found out when my bank texted me a fraud warning and asked me to text back to confirm a purchase was made by me. It was then I realised I couldn’t. Life Mobile, who PlusNet took over, was the same. So guess they just kept the same policy in place.
I think it’s something to do with stopping people texting premium numbers or something.Posted 4 months ago
Plusnet have been brilliant for me, even after finding a better promotional plan via money supermarket than the one I selected, they moved me across immediately. Brilliant service throughout.
I have a 5% monthly discount promo code for plusnet if anyone wants one. Email in profile.Posted 4 months ago
But service costs have risen, with the service industry being just about the only growth industry.
As you can see by my example calls and texts are zero. Or that plan is better illustrated as proportionate. Yet we don’t know what proportion of the cost represents the service, what proportion is Tel and text and therefore what remains for data.
It could well be your paying a higher proportion of your plan toward data by % factor than others.
Eg, if my my data is £1 of the £9 I’m paying, the 6 X £1 you are paying for 4x the quantity appears poor value.Posted 4 months ago
