Mobile Broadband Deals with Bundled Tablet Buyer's Guide
Getting a new tablet and mobile broadband contract in one can be a very tempting offer if you don't have the cash upfront to buy a tablet outright. Much as mobile phone contracts work you simply pay a monthly amount for a minimum contract period (usually 24 months) and at the end the tablet is yours.
The ever popular iPad and iPad mini make up the bulk of offers, but you may also find Android based tablets too.
However, there are a few things worth thinking about before committing yourself to make sure it actually is the best deal for you:
Do you also have home broadband? If you do then it may be cheaper to buy the tablet by itself and get a pay as you go SIM for when you are away from home as you can use your home WiFi network with the tablet for better speeds and cheaper downloads.
Tablets are easily stolen or damaged just like mobile phones, so make sure the deal comes with insurance, otherwise you’ll need to budget for additional insurance or make sure you home insurance policy will provide cover.
