Three intros pay-per-day mobile broadband
Cheaper data for casual connectors
Three has introduced a one-day internet access package for punters who only need casual 3G data connectivity.
The Pay Per Day deal costs £2 and provides 500MB of data transfer for the 24-hour period. You can buy online or pick up a voucher in shops.
There's no time limit on the vouchers, Three indicated. Buy £10 worth and you'll be able to use each of the five vouchers whenever you need them, it said.
Three currently provides PAYG mobile broadband on a 30-day contract. Pay £10, for exmaple, and you'll get an iPad-ready Micro SIM and 1GB of data. But you have to use it within the month, or lose your remaining data allowance. ®
Still not as good as Vodafone's old deal for casual use
Still not as good as Vodafone's old deal for casual use - £15 per gigabyte (so yes, more expensive for heavy use) but if you used only a penny's worth one day, that's £14.99 credit left, and no expiry so long as used at least every six months. I doubt there will ever be such a good deal again; glad I bought my stick when I did, because it was cancelled for new customers at the end of 2009.
T-Mobile Pay per day Mobile Broadband (used to be WnW daily plus)

I had mine for at least 3 years.
Why is the 3 plan news?
