Unlimited data on Pay As You Go

10th June 2022

Unlimited data on Pay As You Go provides the ultimate flexibility, as you’re not tied into a contract and nor are you limited in how much data you can use.

So this can be a desirable plan type, and these plans don’t even have to cost the earth, as a number of affordable networks offer this.

In fact, you can get unlimited data on Pay As You Go from quite a few different networks. Below we’ve highlighted all the best options.

Networks offering unlimited data on Pay As You Go

Three, Vodafone, Giffgaff and iD Mobile all offer Pay As You Go bundles with unlimited data, and we’ll cover them in more detail below. Then under that we’ve taken a look at networks that offer similar bundles that aren’t strictly classed as Pay As You Go – we’ll explain these more further down.

Three offers a range of packs on Pay As You Go, with one coming with unlimited data. This costs £35 at the time of writing, and also includes unlimited minutes and texts.

Like most Pay As You Go packs it lasts 30 days and doesn’t tie you into a contract. It also comes with 5G data, and perks such as inclusive roaming in 71 destinations (with a 12GB fair use limit), and access to the Three+ app, which is packed full of offers and discounts from other brands.

Three also offer a unlimited pack that lasts for 90 days which currently costs £90 a month. It comes with all the same perks as the 30 day offering.

Giffgaff offers two different unlimited data bundles, but only one of them fully fits our definition of Pay As You Go.

That’s its ‘Always On’ bundle, which costs £25 for 30 days, and also gives you unlimited minutes and texts. It’s unusual though in that while it offers 5G speeds, you only get that for the first 80GB, after which it will drop to a mere 384kbps between 8am and midnight.

There’s also a £35 bundle which comes with truly unlimited data, but this is only accessible if you set it to recur each month – which Pay As You Go doesn’t typically require. However, there’s still no contract, so you can cancel it at any time.

Both bundles also come with EU roaming – up to a 20GB fair usage limit.

iD Mobile’s unlimited data Pay As You Go bundle is a bargain at just £16 for a 30-day duration. As with other networks you also get unlimited minutes and texts here, and you can roam across the EU at no extra cost (subject to a variable fair usage policy).

Networks offering unlimited data on 30-day Pay As You Go-like bundles

Asda Mobile, Lebara, Lyca Mobile, Smarty and VOXI, all also offer unlimited data bundles with no contract.

These networks don’t advertise their unlimited data bundles as being Pay As You Go, instead listing them as SIM-only, but as these plans only last 30 days, don’t tie you in, and in most cases don’t require a credit check, they’re very similar and are worth considering.

The only thing to watch out for is that they will typically automatically renew each month, whereas true Pay As You Go bundles won’t unless you opt into them doing.

Asda Mobile offers a trio of unlimited data bundles, each lasting 30 days and with no contract. Where they differ is in their pricing and their speed.

The cheapest costs just £20 but limits you to 2Mbps speeds, then there’s a £25 one which lets you access speeds of up to 10Mbps, and a £30 one which is capped at 150Mbps. Only the last of those offers 5G speeds. All of those bundles also come with unlimited minutes and texts, as well as free roaming in the EU up to 25GB.
