i think this is an amazing deal, sure there are times when there aren't many ads, but it is a free service, apart from the cost of the sim or dongle. I love it for my ipad and thinking of getting a dongle for my laptop.

Kudos to BenA and Dilip for bringing this service to UK. I got the SIM for only £1 thanks to the code at MSE.
I have been using it since 28 Nov and have 'earned' 5565.50 MB to date.
First three days there were many ads to watch I received 711.50 MB.
Daily average in December was 116.00 MB and 33.58 MB in January.
Looks as if it will be less in February. Just an observation, not a criticism.
I appreciate that this is a new service by a relatively small company. But I hope that they will address various issues raised by the users at Samba forum.
The same problem as Seon, Data missing, Samba also telling me I've gone over my data limit when I had topped up, Data used quicker than normal and worst of all Samba keeps suspending there services without prior warning.... feel as though I've been ripped off?
I've been using Samba since they launched last year and it's brilliant - swapped my Three SIM in my iPad which was costing me £10 a month and now get exactly the same service for free!
