Hi everyone,

I just moved from Germany to London. I will be getting a telephone and internet provider in the next couple of days but in the meantime, I am looking for an internet provider, which offers pay as you go mobile internet services.

I have a laptop with an integrated SIM slot. Which provider does offer SIM cards for laptops to have mobile internet access?

Thanks again for your help.

Kind regards,

They all do Oct 13, 2011

When I'm in the UK I use Vodaphone pay-as-you go internet which costs me about £10 a month. The SIM is free if you get a £10 top up.
PS It may be a good idea to use your mobile phone to check the signal strengths of the different operators in your own home before choosing. Vodaphone has an excellent coverage in the UK.

Try T-Mobile Oct 13, 2011

I used to use a Vodafone UMTS stick when I was in the UK, but switched to a T-Mobile pay-as-you-go UMTS stick last year because of far better coverage and signal strength. So I'd say that T-Mobile may be the better provider for data transmission (I'd also recommend a UMTS stick in preference to an internal SIM slot).
