so my brother in law is comming over fro UK in a few months....

he is bringin his laptop and wants to have internet access from it.
he wants a data card and access plan for a month.

I dont expect him to use much data, 50 -> 100Mb per day maybe.

if he was to buy a data card....(maybe second hand)
what data rate would he get with a pre-paid sim??

he is looking for a solution that will cost less than $100.

any thoughts??

I assume you are looking for a Vodafone data card?

Prepay will get the same speeds as on account but it will be very expensive. There will be a charge of $1 for the first 10MB every day and then $1 per MB afterwards...

Solution less than $100 prob not going to happen. Maybe $100 for the data card from trademe, then set him up with a data plan for the month! The vodafone plans for "no term" data  puts at 1GB for $60, 2GB for $70. 3GB for $80 or 6GB for $90. If he is bring pounds over, he'll get a good deal for $$$ anyway. Ah the price of mobile data in NZ, I can feel a rant coming on...
