Truphone announced today that its Apple SIM data plans for cellular iPads are now officially available in Ireland and Portugal following last week’s launch in Australia and the Netherlands.

The service is also available in Hong Kong, Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom, with an additional 31 countries to follow by the end of 2017.

These plans let iPad owners instantly get online and stay connected via the Truphone network at home and while traveling in 40 countries without international roaming charges.

Truphone is giving customers 100MB of data for free, with a try before you buy offer making it easy for customers to get 4G data directly on their iPad with no obligation to purchase.

To sign up for the service, just tap Settings > Mobile Data > Set Up Mobile Data, select Truphone as your provider and choose a data bucket you need for a month. You can buy more data at any time with a valid Visa or MasterCard in 40 countries.

Two new features are now available, too:

  • Auto Renew: Automatically purchase a new data plan when the current one expires or is consumed for uninterrupted 4G connectivity, with built-in overspend protection.
  • Top Up Anytime: The freedom to add more data anytime, anywhere without having to wait for your plan to expire. Create an easily-managed queue of data plans to make sure you never run out of data.

Apple SIM is built into all cellular iPad Pro models and is compatible with the fifth-generation iPad, first-generation 12.9-inch iPad Pro, iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2 cellular models.

    Meh, 100 MB for free and then it costs.

    I’m just glad for the new EU rules making calls and texts free within the entire EU, and with plenty of data.

    In my current phone plan with 30GB data in Denmark, I have 8 GB of data each month to use outside Denmark in any EU country.

    And in my plan I also have what they call “data sharing”, where you get a free extra SIM card for my iPad on my current plan.

    So as long as I travel inside the EU, I’m pretty well covered.
