ASDA Mobile prices increased

Sad news – as of today, ASDA Mobile’s prices have shot up (in some cases, by 50%). Calls costs have increased from only 8p/minute to 10p/minute and texts have gone from just 4p to 6p. It was only in April 2007 when ASDA Mobile redefined PAYG deals in the UK with their stunning offer and for years they offered easily the best value tariff around. We’re very disappointed to hear about this price bump and hope that other networks don’t follow suit. Luckily for you, we’ve have diligently gone though all our pages to amend the pricing ensuring that our price comparison chart is always up-to-date with accurate information allowing you to choose the best offers available.

Also luckily for you, they still do offer fantastic value for money. The new prices will add a few quid onto your monthly bill but you’ll still be saving tons over other networks. Also, thankfully, their great bundles are still the same price and offer texts from as low as 2.4p and any-network any-time calls from only 4p per minute.

However, if that’s not consolation enough, there are still plenty of great networks that do offer dirt cheap calls and texts still and will post you a free SIM card. Check out Giffgaff and Family Mobile which both will give you 4p texts and 8p calls (as well as some other amazing deals like unlimited data that ASDA Mobile never had). And if you do decide to change networks now ASDA Mobile is more expensive, we got great guides to help you get your PAC and port your mobile number.

Giffgaff make goodybags even better value

Giffgaff have recently announced that they are giving their customers even more for their money. Now the £20 monthly goodybag add-on has increased from 600 minutes to a massive 800 inclusive minutes that can be used on calls to any UK mobile or landline. We thought it was already the best deal available on UK PAYG networks and now it’s even better value than before. Of course, you still get unlimited texts and unlimited data included with your goodybag too.

If you think you can beat all that for £20, let us know in the comments below…
