Phones tend to last longer these days, and that’s made SIM-Only contracts much more popular for customers – and with the release of Virgin’s latest “Quid for a Gig” campaign, the competition is hotting up.

The network has dropped the prices on its SIM-only deals, starting at just £12 per month for 12GB of data, with 5000 minutes and unlimited texts.

It’s a 12-month plan, but it is flexible – you can make changes to your data and minutes allowances each month, as well as roll unused data into the next month. A big bonus is that the data included doesn’t include any WhatsApp usage – meaning you can text away to your heart’s content.

Check out the deal below, as well as the 15GB and 20GB versions.

How do these offers stack up to the competition, though? EE offers a whopping 100GB of data for just £27 per month which is impressive but also charges £16 for a single gigabyte at the other end of the spectrum. Their SIM-only deals do offer unlimited texts and minutes, too.
