Virgin Mobile flash sale gets you 40GB of data SIM-only for £18 a month

Virgin Media is offering one of the best-value SIM-only deals we’ve ever seen, but it’s only available for the remainder of this month.

The MVNO wants just £18 a month (for 12 months) for 40GB of data every billing cycle. The offer, which runs until the end of this month, also gives users 5000 minutes and unlimited texts.

Usually, the tariff costs £25 and offers just 20GB of data, so you’re getting twice the data at a saving of £7 a month. Decent.

The SIM-only option means customers can use their own handsets, without having to purchase a device alongside their contract.

The network also offers data rollover from month to month, with data-free messaging on the major social platforms and the ability to “roam like home” in 43 countries.

How about 5GB for £9?

If you don’t feel like you need 40GB a month, you can get 5GB of data for just £9 a month. The flash sale offers five times the data usually offered on the tariff, which has 1500 minutes and the obligatory unlimited texts.

Virgin says the deal is open to all customers, even those who don’t have its TV or broadband services in the home.

If you’re concerned about the quality of the data, Virgin Media operates on EE’s 4G network. There’s also free access to 2 million Wi-Fi hotspots around the UK via Virgin Media WiFi.
