4G is coming to giffgaff

giffgaff 4G

Mega-fast email, browsing and downloading is coming to the mobile network run by you. But before you start surfing the web and sharing your photos at lightning speed, you will need the gear to make it all happen.

Should I be excited?

Totally. 4G will change the way you use your phone with our fastest download and upload speeds ever. 4G speeds will vary depending on demand and location, but we are expecting to offer 5x faster downloads compared to 3G. That means less buffering on YouTube, more gaming on the go and faster access to music next time you want to boogie.

Speed expectations based on Ofcom Report. 4G service will be available in selected areas with 4G coverage when we launch it. 4G speed will vary depending on location and number of people using the service. 4G device and goodybag required.

4G is coming, it's time to get prepared. Just follow these 3 steps.
