3G data card recs
 
Hi guys,

I'm just looking in to 3G/GPRS data cards for my mac powerbook.

I only need to use it on occasional weekends, on our boat that we've just bought.

I've had a look at vodafone's website and ebay. I think I've concluded that its not really worth getting a contract card which costs about 60 to buy and the lowest monthly contract is 29.38 per month which includes 250mb of data. Which is probbers a bit too much money to spend per month, if I'm only going to use it every other w/e or so.

The other option is pay as you go, the card costs 199 from vodafone or from ebay 60-70. The charges are 4.00 per mb. Now I don't think I'll be downloaded a lot of data - but occasionally I may need to do some work and send large files. I don't really know how much data I use in my leisure time (which is mainly what I'd use the data card for).

I've not really looked at other companies - not sure who the best ones are (I've always be more than happy with vodafone on my pay as you go sim for my mobile). And I don't think anyone else is compatable with Macs?

Does anyone have any opinions or recs on other competitors - or indeed offer any advice on anything I've overlooked as I'm not really technical minded.

Thanks very much!

Pay as you go mobile vs contract deals
 
Pay as you go vs contract phones, Are pay as you go phones which is worth it?

Thanks!
