    I know the topic has been covered many times before, but with technology changing daily what is the best data sim available for Europe. Mainly want to surf, send the odd e-mail and Skype some calls.

    Fed up paying extortionate wifi rates on some sites, and can't eat any more McDonalds.

    All advice welcome.

    Well as no one else has replied I will suggest Europa Sim from motorhomewifi.

    Used it in Spain earlier this year and it was excellent. Just check with them about Skype usage as whilst there is no additional charge after the daily limit of 500mb it does slow down considerably from then on.

    I use globalgig. The most months you sign for the cheaper it gets. Automatically searches for each countries network when you arrive in the country.

    Can the free roaming 3 sim be used on a mifi ? On the website it says no tethering.
