I am on Mac OS (10.6) and would like to purchase a mobile broadband usb stick. Ideally a cheap "pay monthly" that doesn't tie me into a long contract. (I travel a lot, and sometimes I'm away for 1-2 months, then back in the UK again for 3-4 months).
I'm based in London, living on a narrowboat. During daytime I've got internet access at work. So I'd only be using it in the evenings & week-ends. Mainly for e-mail / news. And the odd Skype call.
For my mobile phone, I'm on a pay-as-you-go, using around £15 per month in call costs, on a very simple/old Nokia phone. Again – a contract doesn't suit me as I'm sometimes away for a long period of time.
Can someone recommend a good network/deal for me? Best I could find was £10/month from T-Mobile.
Should I keep mobile phone & mobile broadband separate? Or could I save costs by combining one SIM card between the USB dongle and my mobile?
