    Default NO contract DATA only LTE SIM card

    Howzit guys

    I have a OnePlus 5T (Two SIM card slot) and I want to use the second SIM card for DATA only preferably LTE. Most of these scummy networks tie the SIM card to the actual device (router - RAIN LTE) but I want access to the LTE network on prepaid using my mobile LTE enabled phone.

    Can anyone provide some guidance here on who provides a LTE DATA only prepaid SIM (I have just returned from living in the USA where data is cheap and enjoyed unused monthly roll overs).

    Thanks in advance

    My wife and I were facing this exact scenario and went for the Giga 100 (it was cheaper at the time).

    We're mostly happy, but Cell C coverage can be a bit hit and miss, but you always have the option of switching to SIM 1 in those cases.

    Buy a 200GB bundle for R1999, and it works out to:

    50GB @ R500 per month for 4 months
    40GB @ R400 per month for 5 months
    25GB @ R250 per month for 8 months
    20GB @ R200 per month for 10 months

    Also, you can go away on holiday for a month and not lose any data, or binge one month and not have to pay out-of-bundle rates.

    Can the above bundles be added/loaded onto an existing Cell C contract sim ?

    I doubt very much you can load prepaid bundles on a contract SIM, but ask the rep in the Cell-C section.
