*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

Broadband deals explained

iPad microSIM deals are mobile broadband offers designed specifically for use with some models of Apple iPads - typically the older editions. Signing up for an iPad microSIM deal will get you online with your Apple tablet and enable you to download great apps and ebooks wherever you are. What’s more, you’ll also really be able to take advantage of all that the iPad has to offer.

What is a micro-SIM?

Unlike most mobile broadband enabled devices which use a standard SIM card, some iPads feature a new piece of technology called a microSIM card. These are about 50 per cent smaller than their predecessors. Instead of placing them in a dongle and then plugging it into a USB port, the microSIM is simply inserted directly into the iPad - just as you would with a mobile phone.

microSIM or nanoSIM?

Newer iPads, including the iPad mini, are designed to work with a new, even smaller SIM card called a nanoSIM. The microSIM is the SIM card standard for older standard-sized iPads, including the original iPad, the iPad 2, iPad 3 and the iPad 4.

How do iPad micro-SIM deals work?

iPad microSIM deals are aimed at people who already own their Apple tablet outright and entitle takers to a set amount of broadband usage each month for a regular monthly fee. These can be on a rolling contract basis, whereby users are free to leave with just 30 days notice, or over a longer contract term.

If you don't already own an iPad, you may want to consider deals that bundle the iPad with a mobile broadband contract instead. These operate exactly the same as mobile broadband laptop deals, with users paying a fee for web usage and the device in a single contract, thus spreading the cost of buying an iPad.

Which broadband providers offer iPad microSIM deals?

iPad microSIM deals are being offered by a selection of carriers. Naturally, the network you choose depends on a number of factors, such as 3G coverage in your area and pricing. However, more important still is how much usage you require.

In general, the pay as you go iPad microSD deals are more apt for lighter users. Conversely, the pay monthly iPad microSIM deals are tailored towards people who spend more time online while they are on the move or who download content extensively.

EE micro-SIM deals

EE micro-SIM deals get you online at super-fast 4G speeds and start from just £10 per month. If you want an microSIM with EE, though, you'll need to sign up for what it describes as a Combi SIM contract. This combines a regular SIM with a microSIM.

Vodafone micro-SIM deals

Vodafone offers a range of iPad microSIM deals which operate on a rolling contract basis. This is a system whereby if you do not cancel the contract, it will automatically be renewed for another month.

O2 micro-SIM deals

O2 customers are offered a choice between monthly microSIM iPad deals, which, like those from Vodafone, also operate on rolling contracts, or pay as you micro-SIM deals.

Also included in this is unlimited WiFi access via hotspots across the UK operated by BT Openzone and The Cloud.

Three microSIM deals

Three offers pay as you go and one-month rolling contract iPad microSIM deals.

iPad microSIM deals sweeteners

As well as the terms of the deal itself, your choice of provider might also be influenced by the free additional services they offer customers.

For instance, people who choose an EE SIM only deal get two for one cinema tickets, cheap pizzas and free movie downloads.

O2 iPhone microSIM customers of all types also get unlimited WiFi access via hotspots across the UK operated by BT Openzone and The Cloud.

Can I use an iPad microSIM in my broadband laptop or netbook?

The microSIM is a brand new standard in mobile broadband technology and is not compatible with existing laptops, netbooks and other mobile broadband compatible devices. This means that you will not be able to use it in your existing dongle to get online as you would with standard SIM cards.
