There are a lot of SIM only deals out there right now, and, with so much choice, it can be hard to decide which plans are offering the best value. We're here to help with that with a choice of the absolute best three - in our opinion.
Right now, our top three choices go to Three, Vodafone, and the slightly lesser-known Smarty Mobile. Of the three choices, Three takes the top spot, offering the best SIM plan on the market.
You're paying just £16 a month while getting an unlimited data, calls, and texts plan - a price that ruled over Black Friday and continues to do so. If that is more money than you'd like to pay, Vodafone can drop the costs.
Mobiles.co.uk has an 100GB Vodafone SIM that costs £16 a month. Yes, that is the same price as Three but with this offer you're getting £54 in cashback, effectively knocking your monthly costs down to £11.50.
Finally, Smarty is here for those who don't want to get themselves tied up in a length contract, offering the best 1-month rolling SIM. You can find out more about these three deals below.
- Unlimited data SIM only deals: see what other plans are out there
The best SIM only deal on the market
Three SIM | 12 months | Unlimited data, calls and texts | £16 per month
This deal from Three appeared over Black Friday and is now continuing into the Christmas sales period. This is easily the best SIM on the market right now, offering up unlimited data, calls and texts all for just £16 a month.
Bargain bills and lots of data from Vodafone:
Vodafone SIM only deal from Mobiles.co.uk | 12 month contract | 100GB of data | unlimited calls and texts | £16pm + £54 cashback by redemption
Right now, this is easily the best price out there for this much data. Before you even take into account the cashback, getting 100GB of data for less than £16 a month is a challenge, especially on Vodafone! Once you consider the cashback, you're paying just £11.50 a month - an unbeatable price.
Keep it flexible with Smarty's rolling contracts:
Smarty SIM | 1 month rolling | 50GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £15 per month
For the price, this is one of the best amounts of data you are going to get. It offers up 50GB for just £15 a month. That alone is impressive but then when you take into account the flexibility of the 1-month rolling contract, this is quite easily one of the best SIM plans on the market right now.
