Now that many of us are spending more time at home, it's likely you no longer need a large data package. If you're looking to downgrade your mobile plan to something cheap and cheerful, it's worth checking out Lebara's 10GB SIM-only deal.
The plan costs £10 per month but until 28 February, new customers can get 50% off the first three months, which drops the price to £5 per month. The plans are on a 30-day rolling basis, so you can always change or cancel after the first three months.
Keep in mind Lebara's networks are on 4G, but that shouldn't really be an issue to most. Even those who have 5G phones aren't likely to experience the full thrust of 5G speeds given the infrastructure is still patchy.
Lebara's plans also pack 100 international minutes to 41 countries, including many outside Europe, such as the US, Canada, Australia, and India. Within the UK texts and minutes are unlimited.
But how does it compare to other networks?
If you turn to bigger networks, it's still difficult to beat £5 for 10GB data – as most major networks focus on massive data packages that are often bundled with additional entertainment subscriptions. If you're no longer venturing beyond your home Wi-Fi range, such plans can seem excessive. Plus, you don't get the flexibility of canceling whenever you wish.
Three's SIM-only plans are all locked into 12-month or 24-month contract with prices starting at £5 for 1GB of data only. Rolling contracts start at £16 per month for 4GB data. See Three's SIM-only deals here.
EE's low data plans offer even less value, with 250MBs of data for £13 per month on a 12-month term. O2's plans are similarly locked into 18-month contracts. Its 10GB plan costs £12 per month, but also includes 6 months of Disney+, a £35.94 value. Shop all O2 SIM-only offers.
