Where does the name “giffgaff” come from? It’s originally a Scots phrase meaning mutual giving. And that sense of community runs through everything we do. From day one we set out to be a little different and that goes for what we offer too. Like all good communities, you get something back for what you put in.
Like all good communities, GiffGaff believes in being clear and honest in communication and flexible enough to accommodate the needs of everyone.
Giving back
Back in 2008, a super smart chap called Gav Thompson realized there was a better way to do mobile. He believed a network could be run without call centers and high street shops. And that it could be powered by members, not customers, who would get rewarded for doing their bit for other members.
