Which devices can I use a Data SIM in?

You can use your Data SIM in either a cellular tablet or a mobile broadband device.

Cellular tablets are different to wi-fi tablets as they have a SIM slot. This means that by using a Data SIM you can stay connected to the internet on the move - perfect for the kids to stay connected on long car journeys.

You can also use Data SIMs in mobile broadband devices. They're ideal if you want to tether a wi-fi tablet or laptop to your mobile broadband device to use data on the move. Find out more about mobile broadband devices by heading to the >
