    hi all, going to be in London next month for about a week and need data on my HTC 8x (international vers.) I've got lync for voice calls, and skype for family, so really just need data as I also want to tether a surface while i'm there.

    prepay 1gig or so should suffice. if it's got some texts and time wedged in all the better, as some local texting and calls might be in order but really just need good fast internet.

    Whats the best option at the moment people of England? cheers!

    Three. 15 top up, get you I believe 500 texts and unlimited data. I know it's unlimited data but not sure on the texts.

    Three, along with most payg networks, won't let you tether. GiffGaff will though - they charge 7.50 for 1gb. Or 10 for 1gb, 250 mins and unlimited texts (uk only)

    I think you might be mistaken with that. Yet have a 5 per day charge for roaming on data, and its only for monthly contract customers. Happy to be wrong on that though - could you share a link to the product page on the Three website?

    Actually, giffgaff do NOT let you tether. At least that's if I've read the TOS correctly.

    Here you go, it says tethering is permitted on the 10 goody bag. It's also allowed on the data goody bags:

    Well spotted! You only get 1GB internet on that though. Let us look at the unlimited internet one though.

    No tethering allowed on that.

    It's almost like I read what he asked for (1gb, tethering allowed, mins and texts a bonus, payg) and found him a tariff to match, irrespective of network, huh? ;)

    thanks all. i'm only there for 6 or 7 days, so going by my usual monthly data use, i think the 1gb should suffice! no DLing, just usual data use. and the extra texts and call minutes are all good.
