9 of the best SIM-only deals in the UK this week

by

SIMDeals

The best SIM-only deals in the UK, including best 4G SIM-only deals and best deals with unlimited internet.

Each week we check the UK's networks to try and find the best SIM-only deals. Almost all include 4G and a few even offer unlimited internet.

We do our best to find a mixture of deals to suit every type of user, but we normally avoid deals with small amounts of data. We think 3GB is a good minimum these days, though we do include deals with only 1GB of data for those who don't need much.
