SIM only tariffs

I am on the 5GB tariff at the moment but going abroad for 3 weeks and will need more data. What is the best option? If i upgrade to a better tariff can I downgrade once I return?

Re: SIM only tariffs



Hi, if you are on a 12 month contract you won't be able to downgrade again unless you pay it off, if you are on a rolling 30 day term you can but I believe it's subject to 30 days notice.

Current tech used:
Samsung A40 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 2 76 Mbps Down/18 Mbps up (upgraded for homeworking),
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)

Yes, you can downgrade again when you return, provided that your original contract tariff is still available and you must not go below what your original tariff was.

Enjoy your trip.
