I'm a relatively infrequent mobile user, who uses SIM-only PAYG.
I'm about to change provider to 3 Mobile - their 321 tariff seems by far the best value for this kind of usage pattern.
One thing though - I see they don't allow tethering on this service.
I hardly ever use tethering, but have found it extremely useful on a couple of occasions when my landline broadband has gone done temporarily, and I've needed an emergency backup service.
( My studio is in my house, so I need a broadband connection here for my work. )
Could anyone recommend a provider / tariff for an emergency backup SIM, which I could use for tethering?
Wouldn't be using it for P2P, gaming etc - just for email, FTP, and web browsing.
Requirements would be
* Allows tethering
* SIM can be left unused for a length of time without shutting down (say 3-6 months)
* Is really PAYG, i.e doesn't require block buy of data which expires after X weeks mostly unused
Any and all ideas for emergency broadband backup gratefully received...
