Got a new phone over the Christmas period? Or, has your phone contract just ran out and now you need a new SIM? Either way, one SIM only deal is standing out above the rest right now.

Three's unlimited data plan dropped down to just £16 a month over the Black Friday period and now, a good few months later - it's still live. That not only makes it the cheapest unlimited data SIM but also the best value SIM on the market by a long way.

This SIM offers 5G at no extra cost and keeps that unlimited cap through to your calls and texts as well. However, if you know you'll never need an unlimited cap, there are a few cheaper SIM only deals out there.

Smarty for instance can get you a 1-month rolling SIM with 30GB of data for £10 a month, Voxi offers 12GB of data and unlimited use of social media for £10 and Lebara goes as low as £2.50 a month.
