I plan to visit London and Cambridge on 16-22 May. Just for sight-seeing and meeting friends — no business this time.

Plan is to meet old OpenedHand fellows, some old friends from Poland, maybe visit Canonical office just to see it (as I work for them for nearly 3 years). And of course see something cause I was few times in London but managed to see only train/metro stations and nearly nothing more.

Then Cambridge for 40th Cambridge Beer Festival. There are friends to meet as well and maybe see something as well (but here I saw far more things than in London).

As usual flights from/to Berlin to one of London airports (plan to return from Stansted as it is the easiest to get there from Cambridge). Need to sort out some places to stay.

Also have to check which UK prepaid is useful today. I need few gigabytes over HSPA — previously Giffgaff was fine for it for just 10 GBP but they have changed rules. Tethering required due to tablet and Chromebook (which I plan to get repaired or replaced).

Any suggestions for 3G or place to stay?

Time to visit UK again?

    You could go with GiffGaff again.

    They do data only bundles called gigabags. For only £12.50 you could get a 3GB gigabag which lasts for a month. if you only need 1GB of data, Tethering is permitted on £10 goodybag.

    Hi Marcin,

    Three should be offering pay as you go with with unlimited data traffic for 15 pounds/month. It should be the best as long as you are within the Three network, which does cover London and Cambridge.

    Have a great time in the UK! Alberto

      Three disallow tethering though.

    Looks like Three with 15GBP offer will be best.

    1GB of 10GBP offer from Giffgaff is not enough for my use as main way of accessing the Internet. And I have to order it first to some UK address and top up with UK credit card. With Three I will be able to handle that on airport even.
