Mobile Broadband Connecting with an iPad or Android Tablet

This article will show you how to set up your iiNet Group Mobile Broadband on an iPad or Android OS tablet that has a slot for a SIM card.

If your tablet doesn’t have a SIM card slot, you’ll need to purchase a mobile broadband hotspot and then wirelessly connect your tablet to the hotspot in order to get online.
