Second Sim to use as Data only / shared Data ?

I currently have a Sim only plan with lots of Data and I bought a 4G router to see whether it would work with my Sim - it did. Swapping the Sim over from the phone to the router is a bit of a pain though.

 

Can I get another Sim just for the Router and share the Data I have on my current plan ?

Or is this 'Data gifting' thing about to happen ?

 

I'm looking for the cheapest option as I'm paying a fair bit for my plan as it is.

Cheers, yes that seems to be an option.
Is it called a 'Sharer Sim' and it includes unlimited call  / texts for £13 a month on a contract (if I'm correct) ?

HI,

@Cedrik No you can just ask for data share sim for tablet or wifi dongle.

I am not sure about price (i think it around £8 a month), call on above numbers and you can get all information that you required.

Many Thanks

Hi again,

 

Not sure if that option is still available, the chap I spoke to earlier said they'd phased out data share sims (?)

That's right @Cedrik, the data SIM shared plan has been discontinued.

 

Thanks
