New Guide to 3G iPad SIMs

We’ve added a new guide to the site today, on iPad 3G SIM cards.

We’re big fans of the iPad here at UK Mobile Broadband Deals, it’s a beautiful gadget and does the one thing that Apple does so well, makes us love something we never even knew we wanted. Apart from the lack of Flash support the browsing is second to none on a mobile device and downloading  music, video and apps over the air and playing them instantly still gets us excited.

Generally we still maintain that the best way to access mobile broadband on your iPad is via a mobile WiFi device like 3’s Mifi. It’s cheaper and mobile WiFi means  you can use multiple devices on the same connection and once iPad gets Face Time it’ll also mean you can use it for video conferencing on the move. But for some people the hassle of looking after and remembering a separate mobile WiFi device means the 3G version with it’s built in SIM card slot makes more sense for them.

So we’ve put together a simple guide on what to look for in a 3G iPad SIM deal with links to buy all the pay monthly deals on the market. There are actually some pretty good deals there, you can get basic access on a one month contract for £7.50 a month and 10gb of data on a one month contract for £15 a month. Those one month contracts actually mean the iPad SIM deals are at least as attractive as the best dongle deals available which is pretty good. There aren’t too many deals out there yet but we’re sure more will follow and we wouldn’t be surprised either if some of those offers get a bit more expensive closer to Christmas so now might be a good time to snap one up as once you have the deal you’ll stay on it even if they remove it for new customers.

Either way, if you’re interested in hooking up your 3G iPad, or even thinking about one for the future, why not check out our new 3G iPad SIM Card Deals guide now.
