No, it's available through any 3 mobile affiliate, not just quidco.

BEWARE - if you go over your monthly allowance they charge you at 10p for every additional megabyte.
That is £100 A GIGABYTE ripoff !
They call it an "out of bundle charge": http://threestore.three.co.uk/plandetails.aspx?tariffid=680

T-Mobile don't rip you off for "out of bundle" charges. Go with them instead.

What is 1GB of data?

This is ideal for occasional and light usage. Various activities count towards your data usage, including browsing the web, downloading music and videos, emailing and instant messaging.

The amount of data used during these activities varies. When browsing, it depends on the type of website being viewed. A site like You Tube uses large amounts of data compared to a plainer website like Google.

As a general guide, 1 GB allows you to:

* browse the web for 10 hours
* send 1000 Outlook/HTML emails
* download 32 four minute music tracks
* download 5 four minute videos*

18 month contract


most if not all are (other than the ones that are longer !!)

£90 for 18 months of internet usage isnt bad (yes i know it is 1gb but it is ideal for checking e-mail, light surfing etc on the move)

the trick is to stay within your allowance - if you do this deal is unbeatable

Um, it's pretty easy to check your usage, on-line, using the modem. I've owned one of these for months now and you really would have to be a total idiot to go over.

Plus, there are technical solutions to avoid going over out there, for free.

Do not let the naysayers put you off buying this. It is a very good deal. £5 per month will never be missed and it'll give you mobile broadband wherever you are.

A bargain!

That's fine in theory, but you can easily get caught out if you are close at the end of the month and your anti-virus or opsys does an update without warning you - or worse if your PC catches a virus and starts emailing the whole world with spam.

I don't object to an additional fee, but at over 30 times the cost of the "in bundle" price the costs just seem unreasonable. They are obviously designed to catch people unawares - particularly people who don't understand their systems particularly well.

If Orange and Vodafone can make decent money charging £15 per additional gigabyte and T-Mobile doesn't need to charge anything, I really don't see how Three can justify £100 per gigabyte. O2 is even worse at £200 per additional gigabyte!

I certainly won't be buying from 3 or O2 while they charge such outrageous fees and I have told them so. I have tried talking to Ofcom about these unreasonable tarriffs but they don't seem to care. My M.P. was interested though so I'm pursuing that, and I'm hoping to increase publicity about it.

if your really worried then go for the 5 GB one for an additional 2.50 - seems worth it (even if it may seem like overkill ish)

You can ring up 3 and get them to set a limit on the account so when you have used the limit, you cannot use the internet until the next month. We have got the 5gb one for my son and have set the limiter at zero.
#16
For those who are considering this it is worth checking first that you have coverage in your area:

I am really confused by this offer because according to the T&C on the page of the offer on THREE's site, you DO have to be an existing customer to qualify for the 50% offer. So what is going on? THREE will not give a c**p about what Quidco say or claim.

50% Mobile Broadband - Terms & Conditions
Offer available direct from 3 only until 30th September 2008 on a new Mobile Broadband Lite, 5GB or 15GB price plan when either:

(1) an existing customer on a Pay Monthly phone or mobile broadband price plan later subscribes to a new Mobile Broadband plan; or
(2) when a new approved customer subscribes to a new Pay Monthly price plan and a new Mobile Broadband price plan at the same time;
(3) when a new approved customer subscribes to a new Mobile Broadband price plan and subscribes to a second Mobile Broadband price plan at the same time; or
(4) when an existing Pay Monthly customer upgrades to a new Pay Monthly price plan and subscribes to a new Mobile Broadband price plan at the same time. The new/second Mobile Broadband price plan must have a minimum term of 18 months. Customers will lose their continuing eligibility for the half price mobile broadband plan if they terminate their existing plan prior to the end of their Mobile Broadband minimum term agreement. In other words the two plans have to run concurrently.

Offer must be mentioned at the time of order as it cannot be applied later and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer. 50% discount will be forfeited if either contract is in arrears or disconnects from the 3 network (for whatever reason). Terms apply. See instore or three.co.uk

The whole idea of these things are to use them AWAY from home!!!!:whistling:

Would never take a contract up with '3' again due to their very poor customer service. Took over 20 phone calls to their Indian call centre when my mobile phone was faulty .Four times my phone came back from repair still faulty with more faults and the fifth time a newer replacement model was sent which seems ok up till now. Had to keep repeating everything i had said in previous phone calls everytime i phoned them. The coverage is also nowhere near the quality that they say it is on their coverage checker and continually drops calls.Often cant get the planet 3 mobile internet to work on my phone due to poor coverage so i don't hold out much luck for a broadband dongle either.They may be cheap but once you start having problems you will be tearing your hair out with customer service.:x

These comments are somewhat off-putting:

Will these work outside the UK (and is there some massive charge). If so, any pointers to non-UK 3G coverage maps??

It is free to use these in countries that have three such as austrailia, Ireland, hong kong and some more that I cant remember off the top of my head.

As a general guide, 1 GB allows you to:

* browse the web for 10 hours
* send 1000 Outlook/HTML emails
* download 32 four minute music tracks
* download 5 four minute videos*


32 four minute music tracks is more like 160meg?
#34
Hi all. I have been on the 1gb and i use it about 20 hours a week and i have never been over. It is easy to keep track of your allowance as it tells you how much you have used in the sign in box on the computer, you can reset this when ever you like. I reset mine once a month.
#35
Probably a silly question, but is the modem config tied to just one computer in any way?

E.g. could I share it with my wife when one or other of us is away (obviously still subject to the total download limit), or would it need to be used with the same laptop? :?

Thank you!

i struggle to get a signal on my "3" phone so, would it be the same on the mobile broadband?

Same here,coverage strength is very erratic and unreliable in most areas.

Yes. Probably worse as the high speed broadband uses HSDPA which has less coverage than standard text and phone (2G) or video and mobile internet (3G) services.
