Always On - Off-Peak Unlimited

By: danny50886 | 17-10-2019 18:34

I think the Always On goodybag needs a slight change to it. Rather than give you unlimited data overnight only once your 40GB has run out, the off-peak data should never count towards your 40GB.

I think you'd get a lot more even spread of data usage this way, as currently you need to be very protective of your 40GB, as the 'slowed down' data rate is far too slow for many modern uses and is impractical to use during the day.

With the change, it'd be simple to spread out the 40GB of peak use during the month and then off-peak could still be used overnight, without fear of compromising my daytime experience after only a few weeks of usage.

I came up with this after experiencing repeated difficulties with using the 'slowed down' data during the daytime. I get webpages that time out, Apps that won't log on and other such issues, but no issues overnight when scheduling updates for my apps etc.

I've only been with giffgaff a few weeks and love so many things about it, but this is the one thing that's ******* me right now and making me want to switch to a properly unlimited data plan with one of your competitors.

I'm not 100% sure it makes total sense, but I remember the good old days, around 2012-2014 when 3G data was abundant, and you'd get unlimited for about a tenner. Then 4G came out and screwed us all with prices. Now 5G will probably do the same again, so I support this

Sounds like a sensible idea and may result in more GG customers too with that type of offering.

Have you even read the ideas you are commenting ‘Good idea’ on at the rate of one-per-minute? It would be nice to know a bit more as to why you think it could make a positive contribution!

good idea, I hadn't really thought of it but kind of assumed this is what giffgaff did anyway - ie off peak data didn't count, but obviously it does
