BMW WiFi hotspot costs?
« on: June 23, 2018, 11:09:06 PM »
I’m trying to find out just how expensive the BMW WiFi hot spot option is to actually run in the UK?

We’ve had the option added as part of the order as a way of allowing our small person to watch things whilst on the 8 hour drive to my outlaws, but apart from finding that it is operated by Deutsche Telekom I can’t find anything on the monthly limit or data charges.

BMW ConnectedDrive UK don’t have any info on packages, data limits or costs etc!

Anyone who has it care to let us in on the secret?  Would I be better buying a MiFi device and separate SIM on a data only contract?
:type: Never anthropomorphise computers. They hate that.

I can’t offer much on the bmw WiFi
However, it may be worth getting a simonly deal from the likes of Vodafone
They often have “special” deals
I’m running 30gb of data for <£11 / month (I get employee discount from Vodafone) which offers child ample viewing once hotspotted to an iPad/tablet
