How do I vary the data allowances for my family SIMs?

How do I vary the data allowances for my family SIMs?

My kids need loads (pref unlimited), but my wife and I only need say 10 megs.  I can upgrade us all to 100mb each, but thats an extra £20+ per month

Any ideas welcome

Thanks

The family SIM comprises SHARED data. Say your package is 100mb, then that reduces as EACH of you use data.

Our billing isn't working like that

We have 4 SIMs on 'BT Mobile 25GB plan with Family SIM(s)' plan. If, say, I use 3gb and my daughter uses 30gb, we get charged for 5 gigs outside of the plan and the 22mb of mine not used is lost at the end of the billing period

@Carlusha That is not how Family Sim plans work, each sim have their own allowance, nothing is shared.

@CapnB0b  what you could do is have 1 Family Sim plan with high data for the kids, then have different sim plans for you and your wife.
