Unlimited Data Plans: By Mobile Network

At present, you can get an unlimited data plan from 14 mobile networks in the UK. In the following section, we’ll look at the unlimited data plans on each network in more detail:

BT Mobile

On BT Mobile, you can get a No Limits SIM card for £20/month. However, this is only available if you have BT Halo which is BT’s flagship fibre broadband plan.

If you’re an existing BT Broadband customer, you can upgrade to BT Halo 3 online. This gives you access to home tech experts and what BT claims to be an “unbreakable broadband connection”. This consists of Hybrid Connect which gives you a 4G-based broadband backup service along with guaranteed wi-fi in every room through BT’s Complete Wi-Fi service. You’ll also get a Smart Hub 2 router and a free upgrade to BT’s full fibre broadband when it goes live at your address. Finally, you’ll unlock the ability to buy the exclusive “No Limits” SIM card for unlimited data on BT Mobile:

BT Mobile’s unlimited data SIM card includes access to 5G coverage if it’s available in your area. You’ll also get inclusive access to the BT Sport mobile app along with unlimited anytime phone calls on your BT landline.

On BT’s unlimited data SIM card, there is no fair usage limit for the service. This is confirmed in BT’s help centre:

Is there a fair usage policy for BT Mobile?
There’s no fair usage policy. So when we say “unlimited”, it truly is unlimited.

The only exception to this is when you’re travelling abroad to another European country that’s part of BT’s Roam Like Home offer. In these 47 European Roam Like Home destinations, you’ll only be able to use 50GB of data abroad at no extra cost.

This information is summarised in the following table:

There are three key restrictions worth being aware on EE’s unlimited data plans:

  1. There’s a fair usage limit of 600GB per month, above which EE reserves the right to “apply traffic management controls to deprioritise your mobile traffic during busy periods or to move you to a business plan” (this fair usage limit was 1,000GB per month for customers who signed up before the 1st September 2020).
  2. Tethering and personal hotspot usage is limited to a maximum of 12 devices.
  3. A data roaming limit of 50GB per month applies when you’re travelling abroad outside the UK.

In addition, if you’re using the Data Gifting feature on an EE Family account, you’ll only be able to gift up to 100GB of data to other users on your plan (or 120GB if you’re on a 5G handset plan with unlimited data).

giffgaff

giffgaff is a low-cost sub-brand of O2 with a choice of two price plans that give you unlimited data.

If you want unlimited data without speed restrictions, you’ll need to choose the £35 golden goodybag on giffgaff. This gives you unlimited minutes, unlimited texts and unlimited data with uncapped download speeds on 5G.

On the £35 golden goodybag, there’s a fair usage policy of 650GB per month. In addition, giffgaff also says you shouldn’t tether your phone to more than 12 devices at the same time.

With Always-On data, you’ll get 4G download speeds on the first 80GB per month. After the first 80GB, your download speeds will reduce to a maximum of 384kbps between 8am and midnight each day. This is roughly equivalent to the speed of a basic 3G connection. It won’t stop you from browsing the internet or sending messages through your phone but things like online video streaming are unlikely to work at this reduced speed.

Customers travelling abroad to another European country can use up to 20GB of data abroad. Beyond this, a surcharge of 0.36p/MB will be charged against your Pay As You Go balance on giffgaff.

Other Mobile Networks

If you’re unable to get an unlimited data plan from your network, it’s possible you might be able to choose a large data allowance instead (e.g. 100GB of data per month). The following networks do not currently offer an unlimited data plan:

  • Plusnet Mobile offers up to 20GB of data. They’re a low-cost sub-brand within the BT & EE group so it’s unlikely they’ll offer unlimited data any time soon.
  • Sky Mobile offers up to 60GB of data per month. Sky haven’t yet announced whether unlimited data will become available on their network in the future.
  • Talkmobile offers up to 100GB of data. As a low-cost sub-brand of Vodafone, it’s unlikely we’ll see unlimited data from Talkmobile soon. Instead, you can get unlimited data from Lebara Mobile, Vodafone or VOXI.

Alternatives to Unlimited Data

In some cases, it might not actually be necessary to choose a plan with unlimited data. This is because the average UK mobile user only consumes around 3GB of data per month.

If you mainly want the reassurance that you’ll never run out of data, consider something like SMARTY’s 30GB plan. This will cost you £10 per month with no contract and no credit check. It already has more than enough data for the average user.

  • Endless social media includes: Facebook, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook Messenger, Pinterest

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Ken !! 🙂

    Please allow me to bring to your attention a typo in the tabulated info under the ‘Coverage, Speeds & Limitations’ sub-heading for Vodafone.

    The speed restrictions for Vodafone’s ‘Unlimited Lite’ plan is not 10Mbps, but rather 2Mbps.

    You may verify the information direct from the horse’s mouth at:

    • Hi Olivia,
      Happy New Year to you as well! Thank you so much for bringing this typo to my attention – I’ve amended it so it now says Lite is capped at 2Mbps. Much appreciated!
      All the best for 2021,
      Ken
