    Default Data SIM with loads of data and no monthly payment

    I am looking at a car that will take a micro sim for Nav and traffic. I cannot find a deal that gives me a SIM that has say 100Gb on it that I can pay for once and just leave in the car system. It can also deliver Wifi data to my kids when they are in the car.

    Anyone do this and have a suggestion? To be clear I do not want an ongoing contract or a giff gaff type setup, I just want a SIM with a ton of data on that I can top up in say six months when it dies.

    Sky have been banging on about rolling data and EE.

    Maybe they can help? Otherwise might be an expensive business deal.

    Seen adverts on the tube for relish, some 4g service as well but know fuck all about them.

    Nice one. I did spot something on EE earlier that was a price for gigabytes which may be the way but they only last up to 90 days.

    3 offer a payg SIM for 1p per mb with 6 months expiry, probably the best way to do this.

    So next question would be what sort of car and how long is that lasting you and what is the SIM being used for?

    So I got one of these and used it from Feb last year in a Jaguar XF Portfolio and done a couple of software updates for the car and entertainment system and my daughter using the wireless if she had no data and it ran out this week. Not bad I suppose.

    Smarty (who use Three). Unlimited 4G for 20 per month. PAYG, no contract. Don't pay, no connection. Pay when you need it.
