This is a discussion on UK - what 3G network is best value? within the iPad Carriers forums, part of the Apple iPad Discussions category; Originally Posted by Harters Originally Posted by Avionyx Went into my local T-Mobile store today to go about getting me a microsim. Apparently they don't ...
02 has the best data plan in my opinion as it's very flexible n you can swap at anytime between data plans
Glad it's worked out ok for you tooOriginally Posted by TonyR

iPad 2 32GB 3G T-Mobile Black (IOS 5.0)
iMAC 27" i5 3.1Ghz (OSX Lion)
I bought on of these too. It's been great and I'm really impressed with the speeds. Far better than a 3G signal on my O2 iPhone. I may consider going over to 3 when the IPhone 5 arrives.Originally Posted by plymouthred
Bought my iPad through 3 (subsidised price and the £25/ month for 15Gb) and I have to say where I've been I've had no issues with coverage. I was camping in North Berwick recently and got GPRS coverage only on my O2 iPhone but 3 was very good. I couldn't seem to get iplayer to stream but that might have been iplayer rather than 3 as I've has issues like this very occasionally on my PC.
3 have teamed up with t-mobile for mobile broadband and there is seamless roaming between the two networks, they have invested a wad of money in building this network and hopefully now that Orange and t-mobile are part of Everything Everywhere, then they might bring Orange into the equation as well. 3 mobiles drop to Orange for 2G and calls when not in 3 range range but not the broadband as far as as I know.
My colleague has a 3 mi-fi for his wi-fi only iPad and he was impressed that I can get 3Mb/s in the office compared to his 1 MB/s Sky broadband.
I'm new so please bear with me
I see T-Mobile are doing an iPhone 4 PAYG sim for £5 + £10 top up and you get 12 months free internet at 500mb month. It says at the bottom of the page that it is not for use in iPad but surely a change in APN settings would work? Can anybody verify please if they have it or know more. It will be for an iPad 2 btw if that makes a difference

For built in, I have found Verizon to be in central florida. Also Verizon gives my work unlimited for 39.99. I'm thinking of dropping the in built one and just going with the 4g mifi. They also give us unlimited 4G for the same price. I just hate having to carry two devices.
AT&T was a pain and gave no deals or breaks. Not to mention they kept changing their story regarding pricing for us. And then said at the very end they never even talked about internet on the ipad. Girl was an idiot.

I'm with t-mobile contract for my iPad 2 £25 a month and I get unlimited browsing and 1GB of data a month and 1GB of data quiet time for using in the early hours. Which I won't really use the data allowance if I'm in the house cos I will switch to wifi to download and upload, will only use that if I'm out and about.
having now got an i pad have been having highs and lows thinking I can and then can't do the things I want with the I pad. Having gone to Apple store to ask how I teether my I pod or have a hot spot, only to be told can't teether and only o2 for hot spot!! Well I phoned 3 who I belong to and asked do they subscribe to hot spot? To my delight they do and talked me through it, as I have an I phone and one plan (all you can eat internet) I can now use my unlimited allowance on my i pad, there you go 3 you win again, thought they were good to allow tethering, hot spot at no extra charge, what more can I say!
