Always On data

What is 'Always On' data?

Our Always On goodybag is designed to give you peace of mind that you'll never run out of data. With Always On you get 9GB of data usage per month at full 4G speed.

After 9GB of data used you'll experience a reduced data speed of 384kbps from 8am to Midnight. You may notice that activities which require high amounts of data, like HD video streaming, will be slower. From midnight to 7.59am you’ll have a data allowance at full speed. Roaming in the EU and selected destinations with Always On means that after you’ve used the full 9GB of data, you’ll be charged 0.78p/MB while roaming.

What is tethering?

Tethering, also known to some as a 'personal hotspot', is the act of sharing your mobile Internet connection with another device through WiFi, a USB connection or other connectivity method.

Tethering is authorised on all our goodybags and gigabags with a limited data allowance, or when you're using top-up credit.
