    Pay as you go MIFI 15th Mar 17 at 6:37 PM
    I use a MiFi when we are on holiday to keep in touch with family and friends when on holiday.

    We are going away for next month, where is the best place to get a pay as you go sim for the Huawei E5330 I have? I need one that is going to last a week for emailing and trawling the internet.

    £20 for a 1 month contract will get you 15Gb of 4G for your device

    You could do a lot worse than that imho.
    Iv always found 3 to have the most reliable coverage in UK but you don't say where you are off to on your jollys so I cant advise on that ..


    Have a great time

    Presumably you're going on holiday in the UK?

    I'd suggest (as you want PAYG) the £30/12GB package from Three - you don't have to worry about cancelling contracts etc., and any data you don't use will still be fresh for a year so you can use it at home or for another holiday later in the year. http://www.three.co.uk/standalone/priceplan-details?planid=1214306096127

    We are going to Essex on holiday, so yes the UK. We are due 4 days down in Kent later in the year so if I went for the £30 deal I could use any left over data for that.....sounds good, Thanks.

    It seems that 3 is the only game in town, although very confusing, various sites offering £24 deal for 12gb available for a year.

    https://www.7dayshop.com/products/new-3-payg-4g-trio-data-sim-pack-preloaded-with-12gb-of-data-three-sizes-35203

    Yet on their website they offer that for £30 but despite saying double data


    When you add to cart there is no double data, seems it is just for pay monthly.

    Personally I would go and grab wifi where I could, turn off video and images, make do, it is a holiday but if you take the web with you is hardly a true holiday experience.
