New BT Mobile SIM data only deals launched

Friday is pretty much always BT price and offer change day and this week is no different other than the introduction of a number of data only SIM deals.

  • 3GB Essential plan £10/m
  • 6GB All Rounder plan £12/m
  • 15GB High Data plan £17/m
  • 30GB Ultimate SIM plan £22/m
  • Plans cost £5/m extra if you are not a BT Broadband customer

The usual 12 month contract applies, but there is a 30 day money back guarantee, so there is a chance to try out the SIM and 4G reception to see if you can get reasonable speeds e.g. using it in a 4G router to improve on fixed line speeds.

The other offer changes for fixed line broadband services are fairly lack lustre unless you are looking the BT Plus range, where the BT Reward is still a decent amount. The BT Plus range gives the added bonus of doubling any BT SIM package data allowance you have.

The standard voice/text and data SIM offers are also having something of a sale, with for example the 6GB plan costing £13/m for existing BT Broadband customers, or £18/m to everyone else and a £60 PrePaid MasterCard as a reward for signing up.

But unlike the other major players, still no access to wifi on the London Underground.

I looked at the voice/text/data SIM only offers and admittedly as a non BT Broadband customer I wasn't expecting great deals but heck, some of those are pretty grim (even if one takes account of the MasterCard 'reward' sweetener).

Although it doesn't offer international roaming (but is likely to, as owned by Three), I'm happily using Smarty - just 3 choices. Unlimited mins/texts plus 2 GB, 4 GB, or 8 GB, costing £7.50, £10 or £15. on a rolling monthly contract.

Not as cheap as the BT SIM for BTB customers when taking into account the reward but Smarty reduces next bill if less data used.

(cont.) and from their site "If you run out of data an add-on will cost you £1.25 per GB - the same as it costs in your plan." Those add-on GB don't "run out" if your plan is kept active.

You can suspend your account for a while if you need (say you were working abroad for 4 months)... your UK account can be on 'pause' for up to 6 months.

No, I don't work for them, but it is quite a refreshing change to see "rip off" pricing for data being tossed out the window - they refund / charge at that fairly low price compared with some bundles and any PAYG, and remember, no 12 month contract !!
