The Register are reporting that 3 are about to launch 3G mobile broadband from just ten quid a month.
At £10 a month, the basic Mobile Broadband package (“Light”) gets you 1GB of data, while £15 gets you 3GB, and £25 up to 7GB. Data usage outside these buckets is charged at 10p/MB. 3 will throw in a free USB modem to existing customers, or £29 if you sign up for eighteen months.
By comparison, T-Mobile’s web’n’walk Plus deal, which today offers the best value, permits 3GB for £24.68 (incl. VAT) and 10GB for £37.45 – which means that the “Plus” and “Max” offerings from 3 work out at a lower minimum price per MB. Vodafone offers 3GB for £25 per month, and a curious deal where you get £8.50 for 500MB in a twenty four hour period.
So there you go. Another good reason for T-Mobile customers to jump ship to 3.
