What are Broadband Starter Kits?
Broadband Starter Kits give you excellent value by buying your initial data up front so you have everything you need to get going with Mobile Broadband. Not only will you get one of our fabulous dongles, but you will get a SIM that is preloaded with the data amount you require, so all you have to do is put your SIM into your dongle, your dongle into your PC or laptop and you're off.
How much data do I get?
How much data you get and how long it is vaild for depends on which kit you decide to buy. For example 3GB will last up to 3 months, and 12GB up to 12, easy peasy. You can use our data usage calculator to give you a better idea of how much data you need.
What do I do when I've used up all my data?
After using up all your data, all you will have to do is buy a top up, and convert it to any of the Pay As You Go add-ons.
The modem supplied appears to be the USB E160G Stick Modem White which is £49.99 on the 3 website, so you get 12 months usage for £50 or £3.80 per month if you take Quidco into account..
Beats a pay as you go contract hands down if you're like me and don't need to use it every month as the data allowance carries over. You can use it alot during trips away from home, but don't feel inclined to use up an allowance because you're paying for it other months.
