Mifi plus data sim for 2 weeks in Canada

Going to Canada soon for 2 weeks and had a thought that a mifi adapter and then a data only sim (bought in Canada) might work out significantly cheaper than the £5 a day O2 want for roaming.

Has anyone got any experience of doing this? Typically at home I rarely use up my 2Gb data allowance so was thinking that 2-4Gb would probably be plenty for me and the other half to use while out there.

If you have an unlocked mifi you may be able to do this. Other option would be a move to 3 with their "Roam around the World" option that has all roaming included for around £10/month? I know it means moving providers though. I jumped from O2 to 3 for my UK SIM for this reason. Was paying £10/month + roaming charges on O2, paying the £10/month including all roaming (voice, text, data) on 3.

That's an option. I've been with O2 for years but they aren't the cheapest.
