8gb Touch £149.99

I have mobile bb from 3 for £7.50 a month (5GB)

So paying £15.50 a month more, means you end up paying them over £150 extra over the 24 month contract.

Personally I'd go that route. 3 Mobile broadband signal can be shocking in places.

This is mifi, not 3G dongle

Very different

Is there quidco on this now? There wasn't before.

Not really... it's really just a slightly more advanced 3G dongle. It still connects to a 3G network, like a dongle, all it does different is share that via a wifi signal.

That can easily be achieved with a laptop. The only use of this thing would be to give a mobile broadband connection to the iPod Touch anywhere. However, at £23 over 24 months (£552) you would be cheaper buying an o2 Pay as you Go iPhone - you get 12 months of free data, and after that, it's £10 per month. Total cost over 24 months? £462.54

NOT 'very different' at all. I have a '3' 3G dongle, also at £7.50 p/m, with a wireless router with USB port to share the 3G connection received by the dongle. In actual fact, 'very similar'.:thumbsup:

but can you put you dongle and router in you pocket and take it anywhere?
Didnt think so.

But their inclusive allowance for their mobile broadband is shocking now, They were giving
15gb for £15 a few weeks back.
Now they only give 5gb for the same price.

No. It's not similar at all. With respect if you don't understand the difference then you shouldn't be commenting.

Erm, yes actually, I can. The router is not much bigger than a fag packet - the only difference is the need to plug it in.

Care to explain the difference? Still seems VERY similar to me, except I'm paying half the price for three times the download allowance.

That's a pretty fundamental difference. I have also never seen a router comprable in size to the mifi devices

* it's self powered and can run always on for hours
* no need for host OS to run
* tiny
* better signal than dongle due to larger antennae

Taken from Trusted Reviews:

"the 'D100 Wireless Router' a teeny, tiny mobile broadband wireless router which lets users plug in their dongle (I do hate that word) and share the connection"

- the only significant difference
dc2447
* no need for host OS to run
- same.

- same.

- although most decent dongles have antennae connections if you need to hookup an external one, but I've never had to.

The mifi is a great device, don't get me wrong, but certainly not worth paying more for. They market this as if it's the only way to share a mobile 3G connection, when clearly it's not. If, like me, you don't mind having to plug it in, there are cheaper alternatives. It's incredibly rare that I can't plug in, as I'd just use the dongle alone or iPhone connection the rest of the time.

So essentially it's a mobile broadband solution that required power.

It is - and the mifi is a mobile BB solution that doesn't require power. Since this is the only difference, I refer back to your statement - 'very different' - and once more disagree - 'very similar'.

Paying over the odds for this one? No thanks, and the cold votes appear to agree.
#13
I'm not arguing it a good or bad tell (the payg option on mifi is better imvho) I am arguing that the D100 is a different technology and one I think doesn't compare favourably to the mifi solution.

I'll leave it there.

But your trying to compare two completely different things.

Its like comparing a landline to a mobile, yes they both have the same function but one is portable and can go anywhere, the other needs to be plugged in to work.

Have fun trying to get your wireless router to work in the park, at the beach, at a festival etc :whistling:

Re-read the thread - the 'comparisons' had already started before I posted. I still totally disagree with and dispute the statement to which I first responded, that the two are 'very different' - the similarities far outweigh the differences.

Whistle away all you like, do you really think I'd take my mains powered router to the park or a festival? What point are you trying to make, other than look childish?

If you do re-read the thread, you'd also see that I said the mifi is a good piece of kit, but NOT worth paying over the odds for, especially if the user doesn't need to use it out & about where there is no power. If you desperately need a shared wifi connection without mains power, then this (or alternatives) could be for you, but you'll have to pay over the odds for the priviledge - hence the deal being voted cold. On the other hand, if you can manage with the dongle on the move, and shared wireless in buildings (with mains power), then there is a VERY similar alternative and a LOWER cost.

So, as stated several times - the two devices are VERY similar, both have pros and cons. In terms of this deal, the cons are the cost, and the pros are pretty much limited to no need for mains power.
