Which Carriers Offer an Unlimited Data SIM


Although O2 doesn’t offer unlimited data anymore, the largest data package you can buy is 12GB of 4G data with unlimited texts and talk time. This costs £29 a month for 30 days and, if you sign up to 12 months, the deal reduces to a monthly £27. This makes O2 one of the more expensive UK 4G networks.


EE offers 4G and has many different price plans, including pay as you go solutions, but doesn’t offer unlimited data. They do, though, have a 25GB mobile broadband data-only package which is on special offer at the moment, down from £30 to £15 per month. Combining data with talk and texts gives you a 12 month deal with 16GB of data and unlimited texts and talk time for £15.74 for the first 3 months rising to £31.49.


Three offer their unlimited all-you-can-eat data on both 3G and 4G. This costs £20 per month on a pay as you go basis and includes 3000 texts and 300 minutes. All-you-can-eat means you can use the Internet as much as you wish without hidden conditions or restrictive fair use policies making the Three Unlimited Data SIM our favourite of all carriers. This doesn’t, though, include tethering your mobile to your laptop or tablet. There are add-on extras to this plan which are:

– £10 gives you 100 minutes and 3,000 texts to use within 30 days;

– £20 gives you 300 minutes and 3,000 texts to use within 30 days.

Tesco Mobile

Tesco Mobile (incidentally the 2011 best network provider according to Which? Magazine) no longer offers unlimited data but, on 4G, has a 1 month SIM-only deal with 6GB data, 5000 talk minutes and 5000 texts at a monthly cost of £25.00. A 12 month plan gives 20 GB data, 750 talk minutes and 5000 texts for £30 a month. An 18 month plan gives 8GB data, 750 talk minutes and 5000 texts for £19 a month.


Vodafone is another network provider which doesn’t offer unlimited deals. It offers a SIM-only 30 day deal with 6 MB data, unlimited talk time and texts for £29 but, if you sign up for 12 months, you can get 20 GB data with unlimited talk time and texts for £40.


With giffgaff, for only £20 you can get unlimited UK minutes, unlimited UK texts and ‘Always On’ UK data for a month, with 4G as standard. ‘Always On’ data means you get 6GB of UK data at full 4G speed and the rest of your unlimited data allowance at 256kbps between 8am and midnight. Outside of those hours, there’s an unlimited data allowance at full speed.
