    There's a good offer for a '3' mobile broadband data sim at the moment - loaded with 12gb which lasts for up to 12 months (or until the data is used up), the 12 months only starts from when you stick it in your mifi and activate it so you can 'sit' on it for a while if you don't need it yet. Can be used abroad in '3' feel at home countries for up to 2 months within the year.

    Cost: £23.79 including delivery - not seen it this cheap anywhere!

    Wow, that is good, thanks.
    I recently topped our '3' sim up - £10 for 1Gb which only lasts 30 days.
    I'll be ordering yours!

    Its always cheaper to get the pre-loaded ones than top-up, daft but true! If you're likely to use a lot it would be worth getting 2 or more at that price!

    3 network 15gb a month on a rolling contract for £20 per month then cancel when you get home. I do it every year for the 3-4 weeks im away.

    Do you know whether it's possible to activate a '3' SIM when abroad (in a 'feel at home' country) or does this have to be done before leaving the UK?
    Thanks

    Last "great offer" on here was March when it was £28.99 via ebay. Still using that one that has done good service.

    That is a good price. I've just ordered one direct from 3 for £30 with free postage.

    You shouldn't need to activate it, but I always try the sim in the UK before leaving.

    3 are offering a Huwaei 4g mifi for £39 on various monthly contracts, possible to get one free on longer contracts.

    Various plans but 15 Gb for £20/month on monthly.

    So that means that you're paying for 2 months so £40? You could of course cancel the contract (ie give 30 day notice) as soon as you get it but you have to time it right so that you get the sim just before you're going away as the deal starts as soon as you buy it, not when you activate it.

    We bought our Huwaei from "http://www.motorhomewifi.com/". They're Motorhomers themselves.

    @Minxygirl
    Sorry to barge through your thread but can I remind peeps here that if you have a 3 Sim as recommended, don't use it all up up abroad. If you take the SIM out with a bit left on it, and then use it back in Blighty, it's as if you didn't use it abroad..
    Our is currently showing 14.9Mb and it's showing no signs of switching itself off.

    That's right, take the contract out and cancel it and it gives you 30 days.
    Didn't do that last year but older and wiser this year
