We think Plusnet Mobile's best value option on SIM only this August is their £6 a month plan below, which comes with 4GB data, plus unlimited minutes and texts on a 12‑month deal:

This isn't the very cheapest deal with 4GB data or more out now. But if you definitely need a SIM only plan that uses the EE network, we think it is the best option. See the networks that beat it here:

We also like their £8 for 14GB plan

If you want more data, you might like the £8 SIM only deal running on Plusnet Mobile at the moment. It's a 12‑month plan, which comes with 14GB data, unlimited minutes and texts too:

There are currently no other SIM only deals with 14GB data or more on other networks that can beat Plusnet's plan here. Here are other providers' closest efforts anyway:

Their 25GB for £10 SIM is another good option

For even more data, we'd say this is one of Plusnet's best deals on SIM only this month too. It's a 12‑month plan, comes with 25GB data, unlimited minutes and texts for £10 a month:

It's not actually the cheapest SIM only deal on the market at the moment with 25GB data or more but it is the lowest-priced plan on any provider using the EE network. See which networks that are cheaper here:

As we say in our Plusnet network review we like the fact they get access to EE’s brilliant 4G network which covers more of the UK’s landmass and offers faster 4G data speeds than any other provider.

On SIM only you’ve got the choice of 1-month or 12-month contracts. Their 12-month contracts tend to be cheaper per month or include a reward, but it’s worth checking for the best current deal.

Plusnet are usually the cheapest network on EE for 1-month contracts. And if you’re a Plusnet broadband customer you get access to exclusive deals and an extra 2GB data boost, adding a little extra value for your loyalty.

In terms of benefits, Plusnet are pretty low-frills. They do offer inclusive roaming in 40 EU destinations. But you’re missing out on data rollover and free streaming data that similar providers offer.

Your Plusnet SIM card should be dispatched within 1-2 working days. You’ll receive a package with each size of SIM card included, so you can fit it into any phone. They don’t yet offer eSIMs (see the networks that do).

Once your SIM card arrives, you have 14 days to return your SIM to get a full refund if you’re not satisfied. If you’ve used your SIM you might not get a full refund and you’ll also have to call them to cancel. Here’s how you do it.

You’ll have to pass a credit check to get on a Plusnet SIM only contract. If you fail a credit check there’s no way to get an upfront bundle or pay as you go option to avoid this.

If you’re switching to Plusnet from another network you’ll have to request a PAC from your current provider and give it to Plusnet at any point. Here’s full info on how to do that.
