I just need to get online to send this – me, often
Have you ever been on a train and had to pay through the nose just to get online for 30 minutes to send a file back to the office? Or spent a fortune on by-the-minute wifi access at an airport terminal just to keep the kids entertained? Or sat at an event feeling helpless because the venue broadband is down? Or missed out on an important opportunity because you couldn’t pick up email in full when out with the kids?
Or spent half an hour trotting round the City trying to find a cafe with wifi so that you can join an online conference call? Or planned to send messages home while on holiday, only to find the hotel broadband is hopeless or charged at astonishingly high rates per megabyte? Or wanted to Skype the kids to read them their bedtime story when away on business, but find you’ve been placed in a room too far away from the wifi router to get a strong enough signal?
If any of that sounds familiar, I know the feeling. As a working mum, I’m often trying to juggle parenting, travel and work productivity and that means I need to be online wherever I am. Not just on my phone, but through my tablet and laptop too.
For times when you need mobile broadband that doesn’t cost a fortune, check out the new MobiData SIM, an ultra-low cost mobile broadband solution from Voiamo.
With MobiData there are no long term contracts and no complicated pricing plans, you just choose a 1GB, 5GB or 10GB mobile broadband package from £4.94 per month, on 1 or 3 month rolling contract.
Here’s a breakdown of what that could mean in real terms:
- 1GB – 600 emails, 100 social posts, 2 hours of Skype, downloading 40 songs and 10 hours of YouTube – for just £4.94/mth
- 5GB – 3000 emails, 500 social posts, 10 hours of Skype, downloading 200 songs and 50 hours of YouTube – for just £14.94/mth
- 10GB – 6000 emails, 1000 social posts, 20 hours of Skype, downloading 400 songs and 100 hours of YouTube – for just £19.79/mth
If you’re worried about overspending, MobiData provides alerts at 50%, 85% and 100% of your monthly plan to keep you on track. This means you’ll know when you hit your limit, but you can still carry on using the SIM if you want, just at 15p per MB of additional data used (which is still 3x less than the nearest competitor). You can even take it abroad and pay the same 15p/MB rate – the network runs in 39 countries.
What we’re going to do, I think, is get a MobiData SIM and put it in an old phone to create a personal hotspot wherever we are. Then I can connect my laptop or tablet to the internet where we’re out and about without any faff. Awesome.
If you like the sound of MobiData and would like to try it FREE for three months, with no obligation to continue, just visit the MobiData website and order your free SIM. You’ll pay nothing and get 100MB of UK data per month, for three months. This equates to: 60 emails, 10 social posts, 15 minutes of Skype, downloading 4 songs and 1 hour of YouTube.
So, what are you waiting for?
