Virgin SIM Only deals do not come any bigger than this: Branson’s lot are offering a whopping 100GB of 4G data allowance every month for just £20.
Available on a 12-month contract, you get 5,000 minutes and unlimited texts thrown in on this deal, making it one of the best data-heavy value for money SIMs out there.
Virgin SIMs use the EE network for call signal and 4G data.
It’s handy because EE is the UK’s fastest 4G network for streaming video and is still winning awards all over the show for data speed.
With EE you can expect 4G download speeds of nearly 15Mbps, and uploads averaging 6.2Mbps, way ahead of the other Big Four network rivals Vodafone, O2 and Three.
With such a huge data allowance to play with, unless you are streaming Spotify, HD Netflix and 4K UHD iPlayer from the moment you wake until the moment you sleep, most of us will struggle to use 100GB in a month.

No tethering or personal hotspots
A word of warning. Virgin SIM Only deals DO NOT allow data tethering. This is sharing your connection to get another device, like a laptop or tablet, connected to the internet.
When you tether, the device you’ve just connected uses your phone SIM’s data allowance. It’s extremely handy if you’re a commuting worker, or you regularly go through areas where WiFi isn’t available.
To be clear, while some Virgin SIM Only customers have told us they have been able to tether, the rules clearly state that this is not allowed.
“Data usage on some Virgin Media tariffs is for mobile internet services and data consumption actually on your handset. It does not include using your handset as a modem to connect other devices such as laptops and tablets – also known as ‘Tethering’.”
This deal is available until midnight on 21 February 2018.
