Free 200Mb data per month SIM - helpful for just traffic info

Post by roydonaldson » Tue Nov 06, 2018 1:19 pm

Hi there,

One option to get live traffic info for the car is to add a data SIM. Three are now offering a free 200Mb per month data SIM:

https://www.three.co.uk/Free_SIM_MBB/Order

You just need to ensure that you go into the Connectivity options settings on the car and set a 200MB data limit per month.

Excellent spot Roy, particularly as my existing Trio SIM expires at the end of this month. Ordered immediately.

Mods, please make this thread a sticky as it's an absolute result and a must-have for anyone with a SIM slot.

Had one of those for a couple of years in a 3G dongle.

Use it for emails when I go abroad

Has anyone tried using this ?
Over in FPace land they say it needs to be registered.

None of the 3 data sims normally need to be registered so why does this one need it ?
