Mobile web or broadband

Can someone tell me the difference between 'mobile web' and 'mobile broadband' please. I am going on holiday on Saturday and would like to use the Internet abroad. But the website says I can buy mobile web or mobile broadband. Both the same price £5 for 250mb of data. I just don't know what the difference is between the two. Thanks.

Hi Habby9,

 

it's the same thing Smiley Happy

To use it you'll need to purchase an EU Data Travel Pass.

Information on this can be found here:

Hi Habby9,

 

you don't say where you were looking.

To be honest the site is confusing with many pages still showing out of date and contradictory information.

Re: Mobile web or broadband

Mobile web - usually means data for a normal phone sim.

Mobile Broadband - is a dongle/sim which does data only, for instance, a data only dongle/sim you would buy to use in a iPad or laptop.
