Cheap Pay As You Go SIM for data usage

My partner is visiting from Australia in 2 weeks' time, and wants to be able to use his mobile to skype home with his daughters.

What are the best options?

Many thanks in advance!

Re: Cheap Pay As You Go SIM for data usage

I just got a SMS today from yallo saying they just launched a prepaid internet tariff. Quite good prices.

150 mb for 6 chf / month
500 mb for 12 chf / month

I got a 2nd SIM from Aldi (Sunrise) for 19.90, with 20 chufs worth of credit.
Send SMS to their data number for 30 days of internet - 400MB for 9.90.

For skype, definitely a good wifi spot.
Maybe YOU can offer him one.

3G or EDGE is not good enuf.
