ASDA Mobile is offering double data on their Pay As You Go bundles, including 6GB of data for £10/month.

ASDA Mobile’s Double Data offer is no longer available to new customers. The double data offer was available to ASDA Mobile customers between the 23rd February 2019 and the 23rd May 2019. This blog post is being left up as an archive for customers who previously purchased a double data bundle.

In the UK, ASDA Mobile is currently offering double data on their Pay As You Go bundles. Deals available including a massive 6GB of data, 600 minutes and unlimited texts for £10/month. You’ll get high-speed 4G coverage from the EE network.

The double data promotion is available until the 23rd May 2019, for customers who order a free ASDA Mobile SIM card and who then set up a recurring top-up and bundle on their account.

In this article, we’ll review ASDA Mobile’s line-up of Pay As You Go bundles and how you can benefit from the current double data promotion. We’ll also compare the new ASDA Mobile bundles to what is available on other mobile networks, before looking at the level of coverage you can expect and how to keep your existing phone number.

Double Data on ASDA Mobile

As a time-limited offer, ASDA Mobile has doubled the amount of data that’s available on their 30-day bundles.

The double data allowance is available to all customers who sign up for ASDA Mobile and who set-up a recurring top-up and bundle before the 23rd May 2019.

30-Day Double Data Bundles

With the double data offer, the following 30-day bundles are currently available on ASDA Mobile:

To benefit from the double data promotion, you should make sure you have a recurring top-up and recurring bundle set up on your account. The benefit of doing this is it will also save you time in the future,  as there’ll be no need to manually top-up your account and to buy a bundle every month. There’s also no need to undergo a credit check to use the service.

You’ll get the doubled data allowance on all bundles purchased before the 23rd May 2019. Any bundles that are purchased after the 23rd May 2019 will have the regular data allowance.

If you’re not currently an ASDA Mobile customer, the best way to get started is by ordering a free SIM card online. Once you’ve ordered your free SIM card, it will normally arrive on the next working day.

Setting Up A Recurring Top-Up

By setting up a recurring top-up, you can have money added automatically to your ASDA Mobile account in one of the following two ways:

  1. An automatic top-up on a specific date every month (e.g. every month just after payday).
  2. An automatic top-up every 7, 10, 14 or 30 days (e.g. typically every 30 days to match up with your bundle dates).

You’ll need to save your credit card or debit card details on your ASDA Mobile account in order to use the recurring top-up feature.

You’ll always receive a SMS text message to notify you 24 hours before a top-up is due to be taken from your account. You’ll also receive a SMS confirmation message once the top-up has been added to your account.

The recurring top-up feature can be enabled by dialling 2732 on your ASDA Mobile handset.

Setting Up A Recurring Bundle

When setting up a recurring top-up on your account, you’ll be given the option to also setup a recurring bundle purchase at the same time. Alternatively, you can set it up manually yourself by texting the relevant bundle code below to 2732:

Bundle Buy Recurring Bundle
£5 Bundle Text AUTO 5 to 2732
£7 Bundle Text AUTO 7 to 2732
£10 Bundle Text AUTO 10 to 2732
£12 Bundle Text AUTO 12 to 2732
£15 Bundle Text AUTO 15 to 2732
£20 Bundle Text AUTO 20 to 2732
£25 Bundle Text AUTO 25 to 2732

If you don’t want to turn your credit into a 30-day bundle, it’s also possible to use ASDA Mobile’s traditional Pay As You Go rates (8p/minute, 4p/text and 5p/MB). In this case, however, you won’t be able to benefit from the double data promotion and the increased data allowances that are currently available.

Comparison to Alternatives

With the double data offer, ASDA Mobile has some incredibly competitive bundles compared to rival mobile networks.

For instance, at the £10 per month price point, you can get 600 minutes, unlimited texts and 6GB of data on ASDA Mobile. On other mobile networks, you’ll normally get only between 2GB and 3GB of data per month for the same price.

Network & Coverage

2G, 3G & 4G Coverage from EE

ASDA Mobile offers 99% coverage from EE.

ASDA Mobile uses EE as its network coverage provider. Customers on ASDA Mobile will therefore receive the exact same coverage as customers on EE. At the time of writing, this is 99% population coverage on EE’s 2G, 3G and 4G networks.

Before ordering a SIM card from ASDA Mobile, it’s worth double-checking the coverage in your area. You can do this by entering your postcode on the ASDA Mobile website:

Tethering

Tethering or personal hotspot refers to the process of sharing your smartphone’s mobile broadband internet connection with other devices (e.g. with your laptop or tablet).

With ASDA Mobile, you can tether on Pay As You Go, either with or without a bundle. This means you can easily share your 4G connection with other people or with other devices whilst you’re out and about. This includes the double data allowance being offered by ASDA Mobile during their promotion.

International Roaming

With ASDA Mobile, you’ll have access to an international roaming service when travelling abroad to other countries.

If you’re travelling inside of Europe, you’ll be able to use your normal UK allowances at no additional cost. This includes the double data allowance, which can also be used when travelling in 50 other European destinations. A full list of destinations can be found in the ASDA Mobile guide to international roaming.

Keeping Your Phone Number

If you’d like to take advantage of ASDA Mobile’s double data promotion, it’s easy to keep your existing phone number when moving from another mobile network.

To do so, start off by ordering your new SIM card from the ASDA Mobile website. Your SIM card will normally arrive on the next working day.

Once you’ve ordered your SIM card, contact your old mobile network and ask them to provide you with a PAC Code. This is a nine-digit code that you’re legally entitled to free of charge, and that enables you to move your phone number over to ASDA Mobile.

When you receive your new SIM card from ASDA Mobile, you can provide your PAC Code to ASDA Mobile customer services. You can do this by calling 2732 on your ASDA Mobile SIM card, or by calling 0800 079 2732 from any other phone. If you like, you can also set-up your recurring top-up and bundle at the same time whilst you’re on the phone.

Once you’ve provided your PAC Code to ASDA Mobile, your phone number will normally be transferred on the next working day.

For a step-by-step guide on moving your phone number to ASDA Mobile, please select your current mobile network from the drop down menu below:

  • Hi Ken, it all makes sense, I was just hoping Asda were doing a deal by signing up for a recurring bundle/ top up you would permanently get 6G. Virgin are offering a 10G for a 12 month rolling contract at just £10. Would have liked Asda to do something like that as I would have stayed with them.
    Thankyou

  • I rang a customer advisor to create a recurring bundle and top up so I could get the double data allowance from 3gb to 6gb. I was told this increase would only last until 23 May and then the allowance would revert to 3gb. Is this correct as the website infers that if you set up the recurring bundle etc before the 23 May you would receive the increase in allowance permanently?
    Thanks you

    • Hi Dave,
      Thanks for your comment. As ASDA Mobile sells 30-day Pay As You Go bundles, it works a little bit differently to Pay Monthly contracts. You’ll get the allowances that are available on the date that your bundle begins. The double data allowance offer is available on 30-day bundles that start on or before the 23rd May 2019. This means, for instance, if you had a bundle beginning on the 23rd May, you could continue using a double data bundle until the 21st June 2019 at the latest. However, if your bundle were to start after the 23rd May, you would get the normal data allowance (or whatever is available at that point). Let me know whether that makes any sense?
      Thanks,
      Ken
