The use of 3G and 4G as a way to connect to the internet has grown and spread beyond just mobile phones. Now you can connect your tablets and other devices to the internet without requiring a Wi-Fi connection. The revolutionary Apple iPad and iPad 2 have already been using this technology, allowing users to take advantage of the huge amount of apps and social media portals while on the go. The good news is that you don’t have to sign up for an expensive long-term contract in order to connect your iPad to a network. You can use an iPad SIM only deal for your tablet.
Both the iPad 2 and the iPad SIM cards are unique. The card is called a micro SIM and it is a smaller more compact version of the standard SIM. Although they do have the same functions, it means that the iPad is not compatible with regular SIMs. However, if you do want to be able to connect your tablet to the internet without having to rely on Wi-Fi all the time, there are plenty of SIM only deals for iPad users. Each provider offers a unique array of deals depending on your required usage.
A great advantage to SIM only deals for iPads is that many of them are available with one month contracts as opposed to a long-term contract. This allows you to have the flexibility to choose if you need data on a month-to-month basis. If you anticipate traveling and you aren’t sure if you will have access to Wi-Fi you can sign up for just that month, and if you expect to be using your tablet in Wi-Fi accessible places for a while you can choose not to subscribe.
