Articles on the topic : SIM Only Mobile Broadband
3 (www.three.co.uk) has added a SIM only mobile broadband deal to its range of mobile broadband packages.
Priced at £15 a month, users receive the 3 mobile broadband SIM card that comes with 5GB’s of data usage over a 30 day period.
Mobile broadband speeds up to 3.6Mbps are available while the package comes with a short 1 month contract tie in, meaning users can cancel at any time by giving 3 just one months notice.
SIM card only mobile broadband works in the same way as the many SIM only mobile phone deals available on todays market.
This means that for people who already have a 3 mobile broadband dongle or USB modem stick, they may have the opportunity to change their package (terms and conditions permitting), especially if they’re coming to the end of their mobile broadband contract.
It’s unlikely at this time that the SIM only mobile broadband card from 3 is compatible with the dongles or USB sticks available from the UK’s other providers like Vodafone & T-Mobile, though this could change over time.
For those users with laptops with built in mobile broadband (an embedded SIM), it’s likely that the 3 SIM will work as the laptop may not be locked with the users original provider, though it’s worth checking before you switch.
