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.

Re: Cheap Pay As You Go SIM for data usage

I know this is an old topic but it's all I could find when I searched.

I have a friend who is stuck for the next 2 months in a crappy data contract and as she has a dual SIM phone I want her be able to get something temporary on a pay as you go that she can use for inexpensive but reasonably large volumes of mobile data.

Any suggestions?

Thanks guys for the tips much appreciated... the Lyca deal for 9chf with free SIM was just ridiculous, my friend ordered it immediately!
