Default Prepaid MicroSIM for iPad data? - 07-05-2010, 07:48

Hey gang-

Considering the purchase of an iPad 3G. The ATT data rates for roaming abroad are insane...no surprise there. So is there an enterprising company looking at offering a prepaid MicroSIM to target the iPad community?

Thanks!

With this link I think youŽll be able to use any offer.
Maybe you want to try and trim your SIM yourself?

Hi

I think it's a very integresting Idea, and we all ready request from our SIM suplier one offert for that

I have a question, what will be the best offert?

One monthly fees on activation ( you use the SIM during the month you pay, you dont use it, you dont pay the next month ) and DATA worldwide at cost ?

Or no monthly fees and just Data with a mark up ...

I would think monthly fee would make more sense for people using the data once in a while. However, unless you can drastically reduce your data charge, I don't think you have any competitive edge. For example, AT&T is charging a little bit over $1 per MB ($25 for 20MB or $60 for 50MB) while you are charging about $3.75 per MB for most countries (such as US and UK). I don't see how you can compete with that.

Can you provide a couple sample rates using both pricing models (ie monthly fee plus data at cost vs no monthly fee + data + markup).

It seems that Maxroam is also going to offer microsims:
Quote:
MAXroam, a private telecoms firm which employs 16 people in west Dublin, has trumped giants such as Vodafone and O2 by announcing yesterday it will make the SIMs and data plans available globally when the 3G iPad goes on sale later this month.

The first version of the iPad went on sale in the US last Saturday and an estimated 500,000 have already been sold. The second version, which includes 3G for internet browsing, is expected to hit shops in some countries in late April.

Buyers of this version, which is not locked to any network and costs upwards of €500, will need a new micro-sized SIM, which is not yet available.

Other operators will reveal bundles for the 3G iPad but MAXroam is the only one which will sell the SIM along with a data plan for almost any country in the world.

Iphonetrip has an unlimited glbal sim, but you are paying over US$200 a month for it.
