Plusnet offers SIM-only deal with 3.5GB of data for £8 a month

Wednesday, January 31st 2018 by Mike Whitehead

If your New Year's resolution was to trim your outgoings as well as your waistline, don’t miss out on this exclusive SIM-only deal from Plusnet.

Plusnet Mobile is releasing a new £8 per month SIM-only plan that starts today (31 January) and runs until midnight on 6 February. Within this offer you receive a whopping 3.5GB of data, 2,000 minutes call time and unlimited texts. With only a six-day window to snap up this deal you need to move quickly in order to avoid disappointment.

This online exclusive offer exceeds Plusnet’s current deal ending on 1 February by some margin. By comparison, the current deal offers 1GB of data, 2,000 minutes and 2,000 texts all for £5 per month. So, while this is £3 per month cheaper the data package on the new deal is over three times higher. That amount of data should keep even the most fervent browsing addict happy every month. As with previous offers, this is a 30-day contract only.

By comparison, BT Mobile’s Perfect All Rounder Plan, currently available with a £5 discount from £17 to £12 per month, offers 6GB of data and unlimited minutes and texts. You can save more money by adding SIMs using BT's Family SIMs package. The more SIMs you order, the bigger the discount with up to five SIMs attaining a 42% discount at £49 per month on a 12-month contract.

Bumper SIM deals from Virgin Mobile

In addition you receive a £60 BT reward card, free access to the BT Sport app and unlimited BT wifi. Music to the ears of any football fans with the Champions League knockout stages beginning in February.

Virgin Mobile, though, appears to be holding all the aces at the moment with two incredible SIM-only deals. For just £9 per month you receive 5GB of data, unlimited texts and 1,500 minutes.

But Virgin's bumper deal at the moment for just £18 per month gives you 40GB of data, 5,000 minutes and unlimited texts. As with all Virgin’s SIM-only plans you can rollover any unused data from one month to the next. If you’re a social media addict there’s more good news, as any usage on WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or Twitter won’t count towards your data allowance.

This is a 12-month contract but you need to look pretty sharpish as this offer ends at midnight tonight (31st January).

The exclusive Plusnet offer is available as part of its ‘Roam like at Home’ package which allows you to use your mobile plan allowance to make and receive calls, send texts and use data when visiting a number of international destinations – 53 in total, mainly EU countries and the Channel islands – without paying excessive roaming charges.

All in all the Plusnet package is attractive to those of us who don’t require huge amounts of data and whose main focus at this time of year is keeping outgoings to a minimum. However, in terms of overall value for money versus the amount of data available, the team at Virgin Mobile are currently leading the way.
