Prepaid MicroSIM for iPad
Connect your tablet PC or 3G Apple iPad to Virgin Mobile Broadband with this prepaid MicroSIM. Data is charged per KB (not per MB) so you only pay for what you use.
Virgin Mobile Broadband uses the Optus 3G mobile network which delivers wireless internet to major metro areas across Australia. You can check coverage in your area by calling Virgin Mobile on the number listed.
Your download speed is affected by your location and the coverage of the network in that location. There are three connection speeds:
- Fastest: HSDPA Mobile which can operate up to 3.6Mbps (with typical speeds quoted by Optus to be anywhere between 500-1500kbps up to a theoretical maximum of 3 - 3.6 Mpbs based on their testing).
- Slower: 3G which usually operates at a slower speed than HSDPA.
- Slow: GPRS / GSM which operates at 50kbps when you are outside metropolitan areas.
Technical Support is available nationally over the phone 7 days a week for the cost of a local call.
Both uploads and downloads are counted in your monthly usage allowance.
