This deal will either be hated or loved,depending on users internet habits and if people demand superfast internet...

I purchased one of these about 6 weeks ago (for a more expensive price from another seller!) and feel I can now post the deal as I have experience of the plan and overall very impressed. But the deal will only suit certain individuals based upon their web usage and the internet speeds they demand...

Basically you are free to browse the internet as much as you like, which means Facebook, Twitter, Internet Banking, EMail and general browsing in a web browser.

You then have 1GB for the likes of Streaming Music, YouTube and Video Chat.

When you are within your 1GB of data usage I am getting 3G data speeds of 10-16Mb/PS, depending on the signal strength.

If I exceed the 1GB of data I usually get a text, which according to the app on my tablet says I have used 1.5-1.75GB of data and the speed usually slows down to 1-2Mb/PS, the following day.

Then I am only supposed to be able to "Web browse", however YouTube and Streaming services continue to work, albeit with a little wait to start-up. So usually just turn down the video quality. But still works a treat and general websites load just as quick!

I used in total over 8GB of data (according to my app) and has worked a dream!

I am just a casual web browser when out and about, and only have my tablet with me when away from home for a day or two. It beats signing up to EE's current 4G plans where you only get 1GB of data for £10 a month!

***Users need to be aware this is a 3G Data Plan, and 4G data is NOT offered!***

I hate this deal.

I hate this deal.


Why is that?
For less than £5 a month, and no commitments to a contract or a worry of running out of data. I am super happy!
I am however not some business user, with high expectations requiring certain services.

If you can point me in the direction of where you have seen that, it would be appreciated. As in process of trying buy a 2nd SIM for another tablet.
EE, have now discontinued the T-Mobile brand for new customers, if trying to buy direct from them and these SIM's now only seem available through third party sellers.

was contemplating the 3gb pre loaded o2 sim for £8. that's 4g too and valid for 30 days.

1gb on pay as you go is £10.

this looks a good deal but no experience of t mobile

once the internet runs out on your current package you can top up £20 and then call to add a further 6 month at £20

Would you not be better with the EE 6GB SIMS that can be bought on Amazon? 4G, good for 6 months and only £14.99 delivered.

these the ones curry's had for about £8 a few weeks ago?

Im sure they are only 3 month/6g ?

Sorry, you're right. Getting myself confused while trying to multitask.

I've been using this sim on and off for nearly two years (the 200GB for two month ones fill the void), and it's a lifesaver. Useful if you just want to browse and lowering the quality on Youtube does the trick or using it as full speed before 4.00PM.

Seems to me this is just a normal T -Mobile sim that you can get for 0.99p on Ebay with a 6 month Internet Booster for £20 added on the day the sim is sent out but still a good deal for 6 months data. Handy if you have dual sim phone

Save £7 - Just buy a sim for 0.99p free delivery from here

Top up the sim with £20 then text 6MONTHWEB to 441

I am using mobile internet at work on my laptop and have managed to get through about 5 GB in just over a fortnight, need something that I can tether with and surf standard web pages.

You can indeed yes - mine has been in a Mifi/dongle and I've gone along doing what I want with no nasty texts.

I bought my t mobile sim from ebay 99p and added £20 for the 6monthweb to 441 offer worked a treat in my phone as it as 2 sim slots, I had a gap of 3 months with no home internet ( thanks ee broadband) so I tethered one of these sims via mobile for all home use and worked ok.

Browsin' blud.

share this with my laptop?

Preloaded sim is 24£ http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/291498454820



What't the point in getting a preloaded one? And paying an additional £3-4 more. Can't you do it yourself?

Sorry I didn't look at the OP's deal. Bit surprised you're having to pay £3-4 just for the sim..

£16 what? Sorry you lost me there.. Isn't it £20 for the booster.

it's limited, amazing they're still getting away with this especially with broadband

an ok deal

Nice lol, yeah that's a smart way to go about in doing it...

How has data remained so expensive? The 200gb from EE for £10 has got me into heavy usage out of the house, and there isn't anything remotely comparable at that price. At all!

so this if find to use in a tablet ? my EE contract sim won't work in mine...its the only sim that won't...

This sim is a great one. I used it 3 years back, when it was 1 year lengthy and around £25 on ebay with unlimited surfing and 500 mb data. I think this sim is from T-mobile euro-zone (perhaps German based) but not too sure. My sim was showing T-Mobile Germans website during registration. This sim worked well on usb dongle to connect on my laptop. Broadband speed is reasonable for browsing however streaming is a bit slow but still works.

might be useful with my dual sim phone and my current payg sim card.

How can it tell between YouTube/streaming and regular browsing? Would a VPN get around it?

It could be Url filtering, though this is unlikely as they would have to maintain a list.

It could check the MIME type for suggestions of the file being video/audio. Again unlikely I would say.

They could block particular ports, but this would be ineffective for the most part as all unsecured web traffic will run over port 80.

A VPN would bypass all of those measures, yes.

Chances are they do none of the above. They probably just limit the speed of the connection. Although this doesn't 'stop' you streaming it impedes it to the point that it's not worthwhile / quality is very poor. A VPN will not help you there.
