Hi,

I just had a letter from Orange saying they are upping the cost of my current plan by 3.5%. I was minded to go somewhere else but see they have a SIM-only 200 minute plan on 30 days notice for £15 which would suit me fine. I don't use a lot of minutes and am happier to buy phones than have them included on plan so I just wondered if anyone knows a better business plan than Orange's ?

I value data more than minutes and minutes more than texts.

Thanks in advance,

Boo

I'm currently 12 months into a 24month Orange contract. Once it's over I'm moving to giffgaff

For £15 a month you get:

400 UK minutes
Unlimited UK texts
Unlimited Internet
Free to giffgaff

Or £10 gets you 250minutes...no contract....

Thanks for the reply but if I'm not mistaken that is not on a contract hence not provideable under HMRC's concession ?

And that 20% of £15 is really important isnt it.

First check which provider gives good enough reception in areas where you plan to use - no point paying less for a plan when you can't use it due to tulip reception.

Giffgaff does not allow businesses to use their sims though, so would you still be able to claim on expenses? I am currently with Giffgaff (great value for money, btw), but dont claim as the account is in my name, not the Ltd.

And don't trust their little postcode checkers. Best to get somebody you know with a phone on their network to check the reception in that area.
