I'm working on car pc and want to get it connected to the internet.

I want to have a decent data limit (2GB) with good speeds. Coverage is important but not as much as the other factors. Also i don't want to spend that much money on it. Preferably a pay as you go package.

Been looking at all 3 providers. Its seems that 2 degress has the best rates (but possibly poor speeds and coverage) vs Telecom (good coverage but expensive).

I'm keen on going with 2 degrees but wary of the fact that the speeds might be that great.

Can anyone give me some advice regarding which network to go with,

Telecom prepay mobile data is actually not expensive, because you pay only what you use, up to the max in your package. You use less, you pay less.

2degrees and Vodafone will charge you the package, regardless of how much you use.

You'd be surprised 2degrees is actually pretty fast... But coverage *IS IMPORTANT*. If you are on 2degrees and use it outside it's main coverage areas your voice is not affected, but mobile broadband cost is different - a more expensive.

Thanks for the information. I''ve made up my mind to go with telecom. I can get a T-stick modem off trade for half the price.
