I own the third generation iPad (iPad 3 as it's known to some). It's the 3G one, and I was wondering what network is best to use for fast internet speeds on the device?
Although 4G doesn't exist yet in the UK, the new iPad can apparently get very high speeds of internet on it? Up to something like 40Mbps on 3G? (Although there aren't any phone networks that can do that much yet)
But what networks can offer fast internet? I recently purchased the 3GB data lasting 3 months on Three for £20.49 (£12.50 when bought through Quidco). The allowance has now all been used up, and with 4 out of 5 bars of signal, I was getting download speeds of 18Mbps, and upload speeds of around 3Mbps here on the outskirts of Bristol, England.
I've now got an O2 sim in my iPad as it is the cheapest network for daily usage at £2.04 a day, but I'm now only getting download speeds of around 4Mbps.
Other than Three, are there any networks that offer data speeds of about 18Mbps? Or more? I hadn't tried it on 5 out of 5 bars so guess it would have been even faster, but it was great for tethering to my laptop - around 15Mbps on it, rather than the 9Mbps that TalkTalk currently supply us with.
