There are no monthly costs and when the subscriber has utilized the purchased hours, he will have to buy the plan again to utilize the internet further.

Prepaid Internet – Advantages

The major benefit of prepaid internet is that the user can use it for the desired amount of duration. If you are not an avid internet user, then there is no need for indefinite monthly minutes.
