How do you get data on an ipad?

You obviously cant buy a Tstick as no usb port? . not wanting to use phone data for it either? Is there some top up card or something that you use?. Bit green here :). No wifi available either. TIA heaps! for any advice

Your choices:
- Buy an iPad with mobile data support built in
- Buy a WiFi hotspot
- Use a smartphone to create a WiFi hotspot

you could setup wifi hot spot on your phone and share your mobile data.
or a wifi dongle for your pc internet.

You need a sim card first, than top up that sim card via the app, online, or pop it into a phone and text the code before popping into the ipad.
If you're with 2degrees, you can use share data. Same with Vodafone but its cost extra (plan). If its not a cellular ipad than tethering is your only option.

Also, disable auto updates of apps, software updates, iCloud features (except find my iPad and mail) as mobile data is not cheap. And switch it back on when you get to use wifi.
