Why now?

Plusnet are reacting to the launch of social SIM Only brands Smarty (Three) and Voxi (Vodafone) by bumping up data limits and dropping the number of inclusive minutes allowed every month.

The average number of calls made by SIM Only customers every month is dropping as more people sign up to free social messaging services like WhatsApp and Telegram.

So this huge minutes allowance – once the staple of every mobile or contract deal – is falling out of favour with SIM Only audiences.

By contrast, data use is rocketing. The average UK mobile user gets through 1.9GB of data every month.

That’s up by 0.6GB a month compared to 2016, when people in the UK used on average 1.3GB of data a month .

This information comes direct from the telecoms regulator Ofcom, from its 2017 Connected Nations Report which came out in December 2017.

This deal ends at midnight on 18 January 2018.
