Ok - sounds like a stupid question, but meh!
Basically - A girl I know isn't that well of. Her mother who she lives with during the week can't afford the internet, and from what i've heard seems to owe her current ISP a lot of money so she can't take out another contract either. Her Dad, who she lives with at the weekends, has internet - but is on the verge of being made bankrupt.
She can obviously use the internet at School, but I feel quite sorry for her not being able to use the internet for her homework / Facebook / talking to me (:P) etc. She's 15, and doesn't have a job or any way of getting to a job as her Mum doesn't drive, so she wouldn't be able to pay much for anything...
I was looking to "give" her internet for her birthday soon - obviously any ADSL / Cable is out of the question at £10+ PM, however I think she lives in a 3G area - which means things like the Three 12GB pack might work.
Now for my next question - whats the cheapest way to get mobile broadband? I know it's not fast, and the usage limits are low, but still - I was looking at either a second hand 3G xxGB pre-paid dongle (you get no refund rights on them - so if they don't work in your area most people sell them on eBay after only ever using a few MB) or going down the iPhone SIM method - which involves getting an O2 Dongle, then putting an iPhone SIM in it. This should be cheaper, but i'm not quite sure of how long it works for or any data limits.
Any other ideas?
