They trying to get more money from you. The next thing they will be telling you is that you got to have an iPad plan for iPad to work. Totally BS from M1.

Get a multi-SIM for $10 a month. The only catch is that it uses your existing data allowance.

I am using M1 Mobile Broadband 2Mbps on my iPad Wifi + 3G.

No issues.

Just need to cut the sim to size.

BTW, shouldn't this be in the iPad Forum

can be used.
in fact without the huawei usb toggle, the speed is faster.

the 2mb or l.2mb restriction is on the usb stick or back end??

coz when i upgraded my line from 2mb to 7.2 using the same old stick, the speed is still slow.
i need to use the new stick they gave me to have improved connection.

when i plug directinto into ipad, like no restriction liao. hee hee
just my "butt" feel

No catch for moi - since I'm on M1 iPhone plan with unlimited data usage.
