With such a massive array of SIM only deals available, it can be hard to decipher which one will offer you the absolute best value, especially during this Black Friday period where everyone is claiming to have the best price. But to save you the work, we’ve narrowed down this immense selection into just five picks.
Obviously, there’s not just one ideal SIM for everyone which is why we’ve collected a selection spanning prices, data caps and speeds. Want EE and its superfast 4G speeds? We’ve found the best option. Want the cheapest deal around? It’s here. Or even just the absolute best value deal (complete with unlimited data, calls and texts), you’ve got it.
You can find these deals down below and if none of them match what you need from your SIM, consult our guide to the best SIM only deals to see what else is currently available.
1. The absolute best SIMO around:
SIM only from Three | 12 months | Unlimited data | Unlimited calls and texts | £18 a month
What can we say…Three’s done it again. Knocking its prices even further down, it has taken the position of best SIM only deal for the second Black Friday in a row. Whether or not something will come along and beat this is yet to be determined but what we do know is, this is the best SIM only deal available right now.
2. The UK’s cheapest SIM only deal:
iD Mobile SIM only | 30-day contract | 2.25GB data | 250 minutes | Unlimited texts | £5 per month
Honestly, we probably should have seen this coming. iD has rolled out this trusty tariff for the last two Black Fridays running and done very well by it. It’s brilliant value and you can revel in monthly bills of a mere fiver a month. And if you’re worried about wasting unused data at the end of each month, you can roll over what’s left for the months where you do need that little bit extra.
3. The best EE SIM only this Black Friday
4. 100GB data with extreme flexibility
Mega SIM only plan from Smarty | 1 month rolling | 100GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £17 per month
Smarty is bringing the competition, offering a major 100GB of data for just £17 a month. And to make this offer even better, Smarty contracts only last for 1 month meaning you can stay for as long (or little) as you like. A real tempter if you hate the idea of being tied into a long commitment.
5. Where affordability and data meet
SIM only from Three | 12 months | 12GB data | Unlimited calls and texts | £10 a month
It appears that Three is dead-set on Black Friday domination. It just won’t let up on the SIM only deals and this is yet another cracker to add to its roster. 12GB of data every month for a single crisp ten pound note is staggering value and plenty enough streaming and surfing action for the ‘average’ user.
