SIM only deals: Get BAGS of free data with Sky Mobile

As SIM only deals go, this is spectacular: Sky is serving up 96GB of free data over a year in its sizzling summer sale

SIM only deals from Sky don’t get much better than this: rather than getting 12GB for £12/mth on a one-year contract, the company has boosted the monthly allowance to 20GB. That means you’ll be treated to a nifty 96GB of extra data overall. Even better, any data you don’t use will be rolled over to the next month for up to three years. It’s an outstanding offer from our favourite mobile network overall.

Sky Mobile soared ahead of its rivals in our Mobile Network Awards 2021, picking up the coveted main prize, as well as the gongs for Best Customer Service, Best Value and Most Reliable. That’s a clean sweep.

And, thanks to this SIM only deal, there’s never been a better time to join the gold-standard network. As always, though, get in there quickly because it might not last for long.

As we mentioned above, Sky Mobile simply crushed the competition in last year’s Expert Reviews Mobile Network Awards. A staggering 96% of its customers we surveyed said they would recommend it to their friends or family, while it offers plenty of extra benefits if you’re a Sky TV or broadband user.

It’s a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), which means that it uses O2’s UK-wide networks. And “wide” is the operative word: it delivers a 4G connection to a claimed 99% of the country, while Opensignal found it to have the third-biggest and third-fastest 5G network in its most revent round of tests.

Meanwhile, Sky Mobile also has the most affordable SIM-only plan of all of the major networks: 2GB for £6/mth on a 12-month contract. This will appeal to people who usually have their smartphone connected to Wi-Fi or only do a bit of scrolling when out of the house.

The massive data 8GB/mth data boost at the top of the page steals the headlines, however: it’s one of the best SIM only deals around at the moment, especially given the calibre of Sky Mobile. Once again, sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
