Giff Gaff or not

I'm currently with 3 for my mobile and considering a switch to Giff Gaff cos of poor service with 3.

I'm just wondering if anyone has used Giff Gaff and if they are any good.

Also who do Giff Gaff use as their carrier?

Thanks

Giff Gaff is part of o2. I never had any issues with them when I used them. I use Voxi right now which is similar but with Vodafone.

Re: Giff Gaff or not

have you had a look at VM's deals now that they have joined with O2? It seems like no matter who you go with you are ending up with O2.

Re: Giff Gaff or not

I've been with O2 for about 6 years, I got my latest phone Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, but didn't get a 5G contract as there was no real 5G at the time, early this year I was told that I've been upgraded to 5G for free.


Best of all a shiny new 5G aerial is being installed near me.

Re: Giff Gaff or not

The problem I have here now is the fact O2 is their carrier.

For the past 18 months I've been in and out of hospital and when I'm in Hospital a lot of people on O2 state they cant get a signal in the hospital.

Ok so when I looked about 6 months ago they were by far the most expensive , doubtful they have been overtaken in the field , will steer clear as long as I can find a no increase deal
