Free Online Banking Access

By: anubisdrone | 27-10-2018 21:59

My idea....

My idea is about giving the community free access to their online banking services similar to the free access giffgaff members get to manage their online account and top up their Phones.

How will this benefit giffgaff and its members.....

Not everyone has home broadband in there homes and like me relies on the mobile internet connection for many things including online balance checking and other various things to do with banking. Also many people who use this network may not be able to get out of the house often, they may have disabilities or illnesses meaning they are not able to 'pop' to the local cash machine to check there balance, withdraw cash for bills. With this idea it could make it a lot easier and simpler for these people to gain some measure of independence back.

Such an idea would probably require a deal to be made with the banks themselves but could potentially encourage more people to to join the giffgaff network as no other Network offers this. Along with giffgaff's excellent 'Goody Bags' calls text's and data bundles this could be added to certain goody bags on a similar basis to the free extra 1GB of data added on.

Why should giffgaff implement my idea...

  • Encourage people to join giffgaff
  • Makes giffgaff a more diverse network
  • Encourages equality and diversity in the wider community, not just within giffgaff
  • Adds extra encouragement for people to stay on the network
  • Makes the Goody Bags more appealing
  • Would help promote giffgaff's already diverse equality mission statement

I hope you will consider my idea and any other ideas this may spark in others.

Probably not possible at the moment and would have security implications as the data stream would have to be identified per bank.

The data hit from using banking apps is very small so it's probably not worth the security risks or the investment needed to make it work.

I use a VPN to protect my data so that would mean I could not use a bank app if this was implemented.

free access to banking ? Where does it stop? Free access to the doctors for reordering prescriptions etc. Etc. Etc.

A well set out idea but one I feel is not really needed as a freebie from giffgaff , I use internet banking and it's not a massive hit on data.

This seems like a great idea in principle, but maybe would be very technically difficult to implement in practice. I'm all for it if it is possible to implement at minimal cost to GG, but sadly I don't think that it would be possible at the present level of technology.
