Internet service provider (ISP) 3 has confirmed it will offer mobile broadband services on the new Galaxy tablet.

The firm joins rival Vodafone in offering web services on the device, which is set to be launched by Samsung as a rival to the Apple iPad.

Consumers will be able to pay £7.50 per month for 1GB of mobile broadband data, or £15 per month for 5GB.

Nigel Field, Director of Devices at 3, said that with both the Android and tablet markets going from strength to strength, the ISP was "proud" to be offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab.

"More than 97 per cent of 3 traffic over the network is data, so more than ever consumers need to make sure they're on a network that can cope with the demand when buying mobile internet devices like tablets," he claimed.

"With both SIM and Wi-Fi connectivity, Samsung Galaxy Tab users on 3 can get the most out of the product knowing they're with the UK's number one mobile broadband provider."

The Samsung Galaxy features internet tethering, meaning up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled devices can be connected at any one time.
