I need to know what mobile phone contract I should go for

My "All the data you can eat, 5000 minutes, 5000 messages for £15" contract is coming to an end in a couple of weeks. And the bastards won't let me renew it.

The most data I've (recently) used in a month is 3.7GB, and I never use more than about 100 minutes or 150 texts in a month.

I'm currently tempted by Three's 12GB, 200 minutes, unlimited texts for £17.
The main alternative is GiffGaff, with their 6GB, 2000 minutes, 6GB data for £18.

Is there any alternative I should be aware of?
