Not sure as never used one. But basically, you put in a SIM, and it broadcasts a wifi network for you to connect to.

You buy the Mifi unit, remove the back cover and insert a preloaded sim card (3 and EE have great deals from time to time) and turn it on.
They produce a Wifi signal which you can connect to with anything wireless compatible, the code/password is generally under the cover and on a piece of paper in the box.
They can either run from battery or be plugged in via usb (mains, laptop, car etc).
Most of them can be unlocked for 99p so carrier doesn't matter too much.

I think I paid £25 for mine with a 1gb sim from virgin then switched to 3 at ~£5/1gb sim cards when they go on offer.
