First thing I did on Saturday after an amazing overnight flight from LAX to London's Heathrow airport and checking into the Heathrow Sofitel, the property that is on my short list of great airport hotels, just behind Munich's Kempenski, was find a nano data only SIM for my iPad Mini.
That led too a short mini-cab ride into Hounslow, and a visit to the Treaty Center where Vodafone, EE (the blend of T-Mobile UK and Orange) as well as 3 all hold mobile court.
So for seven and a half pounds you get a gig of data good for a month. For 20 you get yourself 3GB of data that are good for three months. I counted my days in London between now and end of March and opted for one of each.
On my iPhone two pounds fifty gets me data for five days on T-Mobile UK, and a week on Three. Its all called fair use but the limits are pretty much half a gig.
With 4G just getting here as HSPA+ rolling out and LTE just arriving, 3G is fine.
