Best Value Data SIM

Post by balmoral » Fri Sep 14, 2018 1:24 pm

I know that is has been discussed in the past but I'm wondering if anybody (in the UK) has bought a data-SIM for their XC40's recently. I'm interested to know what the best value options are around at the moment.

Many thanks

This one has been highlighted before and still seems good value - currently at £42.99

I just went with a 20gb rolling monthly contract from 3 which costs £23 a month. Although I’m not convinced it’s going to be enough. It would be plenty for just me streaming music and for the additional traffic info it pulls in, but with two kids watching youtube as well, it went through 2gb of data in the first 24 hours! Would love an unlimited card, which there are some available for not too much.
It’s arrived!! :D - FE AWD D4 bright silver, 20”, Lava, Apple Car Play. Loving it!

That’s a good deal Bob. I got the Three 12GB lasting 12 month option off Amazon for £34.

I was going to go with the O2 one that pp67 mentioned, but their online chat help said it only lasts for 30 days.

Should last me for some time. Most of my streaming is via Apple CarPlay, so the onboard data is not a very high consumer.
