    Having recently paid 22 for 12GB I'd say yes.

    Just to close this... I bought one and installed it in an older Mifi but it wouldn't connect so I phoned the 3 helpline and the support guy reconfigured the unit for me - now up and running - 'Big Up' for 3, well pleased. Ferry next week.

    I use 3. with a mi-fi/dongle/pocket wi-fi

    Worked in UK with no probem

    Would not work in France But I could see a VG signal
    Phoned 3 ..They phoned back

    No1 They needed to allow roaming at their end.
    No2 I needed to change a "profile" on my device...They explained and all was well !

    Thus I will use them again as and when I need

    I also went on a monthly plan with DD.
    This was cancelled when I no longer needed it without any fuss or indeed hidden cost

    presently on this (24gb for 24 months ) bought two cards just in case 3 implement their two month rule but didn't have any problems on jan's phone before xmas, agree that 3s back up service worked great had a problem in portugal guy spent ages talking me through it and called me back twice, now i automatically go to network resets if there is a problem and that seems to sort it ,

    I have bought one of these 3 24g data cards. It is in a Huawei MIFI. I'm not sure how I will be able to tell if there is a problem with the unit, card or if its just out of a 3 signal area. I go to Spain in a month. Should I go into the 3 shop and get roaming sorted out now?

    I would, no point waiting until your in Spain to find out you have a problem. I activated my roaming online.

    Last year we purchased two of the 12gb size and they worked well in France and Spain. WE activated prior to departing the UK
    In Portugal we purchased a local Nos data sim, at the time it was 24 for 30 days of unlimited wi fi.
    The last time I looked the offer was 30 for 30 days
