As above really, any suggestions? Don't need calls just data
Pay as you go web access? Who's the best value?
Now that the majority of web access is via cable of ADSL most providers have a minimum contract of 12-24 months and a fixed monthly cost for a certain amount of data i.e. 40GB. I don't think anyone really does PAYG broadband.
A few people may still do PAYG dial-up but you'll still need a phone line with a minimum contract, usually 12-24 months.
If you're talking about mobile broadband there are various options around. Again though I don't think anyone does PAYG. Most will do a sim only deal which will give you xMB or GB per month for a fixed monthly fee.
Most mobile networks do PAYG mobile broadband for around the £15/3GB mark, but they are slow.
t mobile do a 3mb stick for £45 including 3 months data, after that it's £15/month. About twice as fast in 3g/HPDSA than my current wired connection
I have recently bought a T-Mobile dongle with 3 months Internet access for £40. Very impressed - good management utility and (relatively) small dongle. Speed seems ok - not as fast as ADSL for downloads but for general browsing the difference is not really noticeable.
I only need a sim as the netbook has a sim slot that works a treat, used to have unlimited on O2 but they appeared to have canned that?
