    Daughter has just moved house and internet provider has cocked up big time. They can’t get internet for three weeks.

    Kids and grandkids, being what they are, can’t live without internet and they need plenty of it. We have an unlocked Mifi they can use. Now, does anybody know of a pay as you go unlimited data sim they can purchase.

    Your help would be much appreciated. Tx

    You don't say where you daughter lives. I believe you are based in Portugal so if she is then a NOS data sim would provide the answer. They used to be €15 for unlimited data for 15 days.

    Not sure how much they need in reality but Three used to do an unlimited phone sim for £20 pcm, 12 month contract, which can be used in a phone ... might be worth them considering it in place of the land-line internet offering.

    Unlimited...... PAYG........ You can't have both.
    Pay As You Go means just that..... You pay for what you use then buy more credit.
    It's unlimited as long as you keep adding credit.

    You could convert PAYG credit to a bundle/goody bag and get a lot more Gb for your money but most only last one month then have to be renewed.
    effectively a no contract 'contract'

    It’s only until the phone line is connected at their house, in the meantime they need internet, but they use a LOT, so I thought they might be able to pay for unlimited for a month.

    Thanks everyone for trying to help.

    The one I linked is a month by month basis, and is unlimited, and is not on a contract

    For my data I use Smarty (which uses the Three network) you simply pay for your first month up front, then on a rolling monthly basis. You're free to pause or cancel at any time – no commitment, no hassle. £25 for unlimited 4G & 3G Data, UK calls & texts and it can be used in a mi-fi.

    Have they got a friendly neighbour who would allow them to access their unlimited connection? Although I've never asked there's a few around me I could connect to quite easily.

    I wondered that too but as they are new they may not feel able to ask anyone.

    Thanks everyone for your input. Daughter has put extra gb’s on her phone and they are tethering to that. Trouble is, if she is out, the kids don’t have Internet. I did offer them our spare Mifi, but they are happy with what they have for now.
