VOXI offers endless video streaming with 5G from £12/month. This gives you unlimited data for YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video & more.
VOXI has updated their price plans in their UK by adding endless video and 5G coverage on plans from £12/month. This gives you unlimited data for streaming online video from YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, My5, TVPlayer and UKTV Play. You can also benefit from 5G speeds if you have a 5G-ready phone, along with endless social media (unlimited data on selected social media apps).
In this article, we’ll take an in-depth look at endless video on VOXI including how you’re able to use it and how much data you can save. We’ll also look at VOXI’s 5G service, other features available on VOXI and how you can keep your phone number when joining.
Endless Video on VOXI
What is Endless Video?
On VOXI, endless video streaming is now included on all price plans from £12/month. This allows you to stream from all of the following apps and services, without eating into the regular data allowance on your plan:
- Amazon Prime Video
- UKTV Play
The inclusion of endless video is a pretty significant offer from VOXI. This is because online video is normally the activity that uses up data most quickly on your phone. Watching a HD-quality stream can use 2-3GB of data every hour and that’s something that can add up very quickly over the course of a month.
The endless video on VOXI includes all of the above services, whether you’re using the mobile application or website. It also includes tethering to another phone, laptop or tablet. However, VOXI warns on their website that it doesn’t include tethering to a smart TV, games console or other TV streaming devices like a Chromecast, Roku or Fire TV Stick. You’ll also need to have some of your regular data allowance remaining to benefit from the Endless Video offer.
The endless video offer only includes your mobile data usage: it doesn’t include a paid subscription to the services. For instance, you’ll still need to pay the regular subscription fee for watching Amazon Prime Video or Netflix. Meanwhile, other services like YouTube and TVPlayer are available without a subscription fee but are advertising-supported.
How Much Data Can You Save?
For many people, online video streaming is the activity that uses up data most quickly on your phone. As a broad rule of thumb:
- Streaming standard-definition video (in SD quality) will use 0.5GB to 1GB of data per hour.
- Streaming high-definition video (in HD quality) will use 1.5GB to 3GB of data per hour.
- Streaming ultra-HD video (in 4K quality) will use 7GB to 10GB of data per hour.
This data usage can add up very quickly over the course of one month. For instance, watching an hour of standard-definition video each day would use between 15GB and 30GB of data per month. If you’re watching in high-definition, this data usage increases to between 45GB and 90GB of data per month.
Of course, if you have VOXI’s endless video offer, your data usage on the above services will not be counted towards your download allowance. However, if you’re choosing a plan elsewhere without the endless video offer, you’ll need to pay for a larger data allowance to cover all of that video streaming usage.
The following table shows how expected data usage varies across different video streaming services and at a range of different qualities:
|Video Service||Data Usage for Video Streaming|
|Standard Definition (SD)||High Definition (HD)||Ultra HD (4K)|
|YouTube||600MB per hour||2GB per hour||10GB per hour|
|Prime Video||400MB per hour||1.5GB per hour|
|Netflix||1GB per hour||3GB per hour||7GB per hour|
|My5||500MB-750MB per hour||1.5-2GB per hour|
|TVPlayer||450MB per hour||1.2GB per hour|
|Typical Range:||500MB to 1GB per hour||1.5GB to 3GB per hour||7GB to 10GB per hour|

5G on VOXI
In addition to endless video on VOXI, you’ll now also have access to 5G on VOXI price plans from £12/month.
On 5G, you can benefit from average download speeds of 150-200Mbps. This is around five to ten times faster than existing 4G networks. You’ll also benefit from greater network capacity and reduced latency which makes things more responsive.
You’ll need a 5G-ready phone to access VOXI’s 5G service. You’ll also need to be inside a 5G coverage area.
At present, VOXI offers 5G coverage in the following UK locations, using Vodafone’s 5G network:

Other VOXI Features
Endless Social Media
In addition to endless video and 5G, you’ll also get endless social media on VOXI. This gives you endless data for use on the following social media and instant messaging apps, without needing to use your regular data allowance:
- Facebook Messenger
As with endless video, you’ll need to have some of your regular data allowance remaining to access endless social media. The endless social media offer doesn’t include voice or video calls made through Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp and Instagram. Instead, the data usage for these calls will count towards your regular data allowance.
You’ll get endless social media included on all VOXI price plans, whereas endless video is only available on plans from £12/month. This is summarised in the table below:
|VOXI Plan||Data Allowance||Endless Social Media||Endless Video||Speed|
|£10 Plan||6GB||✔ Yes, included||✘ Not included||4G|
|£12 Plan||12GB||✔ Yes, included||✔ Yes, included||5G|

No Contract & No Credit Check
There’s no need to sign a contract or to undergo a credit check when joining the VOXI network.
VOXI works on a one-month rolling basis, giving you the flexibility to change your plan each month (e.g. upgrading to a plan with more data, or downgrading to a cheaper plan with less data).
VOXI can also be used if you don’t want the hassle of going through a credit check. The plans on VOXI are a pre-paid product, so they’re also suitable for under-18s who aren’t able to undergo a credit check. It also isn’t possible to accidentally run up unexpected charges outside of your inclusive allowance.
Keeping Your Phone Number
If you’re changing from another mobile network to VOXI, it’s easy to keep your current phone number.
Start by ordering your free SIM card from VOXI online. Once you’ve done this, you can request a PAC Code from your old network. You can get a PAC Code through your mobile network’s website or app, or by texting PAC to 65075. It’s always free getting a PAC Code from your old network and once issued, it’ll be valid for 30 days.
When your new VOXI SIM card arrives in the post, you’ll be able to log in to your VOXI account to submit your PAC Code online. Once you’ve done this, your phone number transfer will then normally take place on the next working day.
