GiffGaff - a network run by customers
Launched in 2009, GiffGaff is a mobile provider that offers unique mobile subscriptions, that allow you to purchase your mobile or simply buy a sim on its own.
When the service first launched, its only initial product was a prepaid sim card that serviced both 2G and 3G phones. This soon blossomed into a service which offered “Goodybags”: Subscriptions full of minutes, texts and data that you can buy one month at a time.
As it stands, 5G is currently unavailable on GiffGaff tariffs, but they assure customers that GiffGaff 5G is well and truly on its way. They are encouraging customers waiting for 5G to get ready for GiffGaff's 5G release by purchasing 5G reading smartphones, which can all be found at Mobile-Phones.co.uk!
GiffGaff goodybags - pick and choose your subscription
Using these GiffGaff goodybags, users will be able to choose a package that suits them. If you want the latest smartphone but don’t plan to constantly use it, the £5 option could be for you. If you’re a heavy user of data, calls and texts, however, the unlimited subscription is more suitable. At just £20, this is also one of the cheapest unlimited data subscriptions available to customers.
Rather than offering contracts where you essentially rent the phone from the provider, GiffGaff lets you buy your phone upfront and then choose the product that’s convenient for you. You can do this by paying the full amount upfront or by paying monthly.
Contract flexibility with GiffGaff
Despite sharing a similar technical back-end as O2 (they run on the same network), the two providers couldn’t be more different. GiffGaff is run exclusively by its customers, meaning any queries you have are answered online rather than through a call centre. As well as this, GiffGaff never locks you to one lengthy contract, as you’re able to change or cancel your package whenever you want.
Once you join GiffGaff, you’ll be part of the GiffGaff community, meaning that you can help people who need it on the forums if you choose to. Doing this can herald rewards such as money off your phone bill, so it’s well worth it for those that love a bargain.

GiffGaff SIM only deals - goodybags
Along with device contracts, GiffGaff offers mobile SIM only deals that they call "goodybags", whereby you as the customer only pay for the amount of minutes, texts and data, which works out much cheaper than paying monthly for your phone, too. GiffGaff Mobile offers the following goodybags:
