Amsterdam pre-paid 3G data card for iPad

Does anyone have any advice on who, where and how much I might be able to purchase a pre-paid data only 3G SIM card that I can use with my iPad while in Amsterdam? Thanks!

KPN has a prepaid data only sim card (reg or micro) for Ipad

Vodafone also, T-Mobile also and even the ubiquitous supermarket chain Albert Hein offers it. Perhaps others but these I am sure of.

Where will you be staying and I will post some nearby addresses of one of these places.

Thanks! I'll be based at the NH Barbizon Palace Hotel, Prins Hendrikkade, 59-72. 1012AD Amsterdam. Any ideas as to the costs and terms of use eg unlimited 3-day?

vodafone.nl/shop/…

You can google translate the page. It's €0.33 per Mb so can be eaten up easily.

I doubt that you will get a deal for unlimited prepaid use for just three days.

There's plenty of places which offer free wi-fi including the public library acroos the dock from your hotel. Nice views from the top cafe also

You are very close to Dam Square and the main street extending from there called Rokin. Within a couple hundred meters of Dam Sq on Rokin you have Vodafone, KPN and T-Mobile stores (see http://g.co/maps/wr2yy) and behind the Royal Palace on the Dam Sq itself you have a large full-service Albert Hein (see http://g.co/maps/beb96).

But as Ronaldo mentioned you have a lot of wifi places these days also.
