giffgaff is a little different to your `normal` telecoms company. It`s a mobile business owned by Telefonica, but run by its members. Sounds interesting? It is.

Our business model is unique – we take a highly collaborative approach with our members who help (and are rewarded for helping) across all areas of the business.
