I was on the lookout for a mobile hotspot for a while to use whilst travelling without draining the battery on my phone by tethering.

Just found this great deal for a mobile 4G wifi hotspot by Netgear. All the reviews are great and it seems to be compatible pretty much everywhere, judging by the radio frequencies. Biggest bonus of all is that it unlocked so can stick any sim into it!!!! Which when travelling is going to help save even more money buying local sim cards as opposed to roaming.

Checked on camelcamelcamel and its the cheapest its ever been. So hit the buy button and its on its way me. as it appears to be such a great offer, wanted to share with anyone else who might be in the same position as me.

Enjoy.

Type your comment here...I'm going to vegas with the family in 3 weeks, If I bought this I'm guessing i would then have to buy a sim while I am in vegas for us all to have internet?

Hot! You won't be able to get a LTE mobile Wi-Fi less than £60. But I don't need one now since I can use my Tab S LTE to tether all my mobile devices.

Hello all, will the network operator see this as a wifi dongle, my point being I have unlimited tethering on my phone sim but if I put it in a wifi dongle I get a message from my operator saying that it is not aloud to use the sim in this device, so I have to use a phone to tether too?

Yes, provider sees what sort of device connected to mobile network via device IMEI number.

would it not be better to to get this

http://www.three.co.uk/Discover/Devices/Huawei/E5372_4G_Mobile_Wi-Fi

on a 1 month rolling contract. up front £39.99 plus say 10gb data at £16.02 a month. just cancel 1 month in advance when you have received it.
you then get it for £56.01 and its unlocked plus you get 10gb for the month. works out cheaper?

This will work in the US. You can use 3G as normal, just not at 4G speeds.

The Three unit is locked to Three, so you cannot use it with a sim from a different company, hence if you go abroad, you will be roaming, which will start to cost more money.

The Netgear is network unlocked, which allows you to buys a sim from any company when you get to your destination and not get hit with roaming charges. It also uses a full size sim, which is even better, as some less developed countries do not carry Micro or Nano sims.

I bought this in the Amazon sales for £39.99 and whilst it says the battery life lasts 8 hours, it really depends on how much data you ship through it.

For IM and emails and a VPN tunnel running to serve those two, it's lasted almost 10 hours.
For anything more like rich content web pages, SQL / SAP clients, etc that are more data hungry, it lasted closer to 6 and a bit hours.

I put this on my wish list yesterday thinking it was an ok deal, and it appears on here today!

....so I've ordered it!

One question though, does this come with 6gb of 4g EE data on an included SIM?

oh, and warmth added, just got convincing me it actually is a decent deal!

No. That package for some silly reason costs £106.86. However, you can buy the PAYG sim separately for £16.77 bringing the total package cost to £76.76.

Here is the link for the EE PAYG sim: http://www.amazon.co.uk/6GB-Pay-Mobile-Broadband-Combi-White/dp/B00FSDAMT8/ref=pd_sim_ce_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1SP9QE9SG4KRDSH92BK5

If that's the issue, wouldn't an external battery for your phone make more sense?

HUAWEI E5372 from Three is working fine with EE SIM card. It is not locked to Three.
#19
Three don't sim lock their devices any more ;)

This is hot tho.
#20
For those wanting the 6GB EE PAYG SIM for the Netgear Aircard, you want the Combi SIM and not the Nano SIM.

Clicking on other sellers on Amazon reveals it for 14.99 from Pre Pay Mania - that's who I've bought from.
#21
it is a hot deal but i cant see how this is going to lower your roaming bill when you are travelling... you still gonna have to pay for that data etc or use your allowance.... i think its just another device needs charging and collecting dust in a drawer...

Nope. I have it & it's unlocked. So its a better deal.

Does the three data only devices have Feel at home?

When I am in Singapore, it would cost £3 per Mb on Three. If I buy a Singtel simcard with credit, this would be $40SD =£20 for 2gb of data. Hence cheaper than roaming.

Incorrect, it will work on US GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile, but won't work on the CDMA networks like Verizon & Sprint.

This news to me. Must be a new policy as I am on Three and my Nokia 1020 is network locked to Three. If this device is unlocked, then you are correct that it is a better deal.

I am on Three and feel at home is great for those countries where it is available. But I often travel to Singapore and Kuala Lumpur where feel at home is not available. Costs £3 per Mb to use data. So this will come in handy as I can buy a Singtel or Celcom sim for about £20 for 2gb data.
#28
Alternative option would be getting a 4G osprey from EE for £49.99 preloaded with 6gb for 3 months and unlockable on eBay for 99p
#29
What's the cheapest ongoing costs for around 2gb/month useage? Trying to workout what's cheaper, a £10 mobile contract and this wifi thing, or just a tethering mobile phone contract for 2+ gb a month use. Currently on the three mobile unlimited data at just £15 a month, which will change very soon.

Supported frequencies:
4G (LTE): 800/1800/2100/2600 MHz (bands : 1, 3, 7, 20)
3G/3G+ (HSPA/HSPA+/DC-HSPA+): 900/2100 MHz (bands: 1, 8)
2G (GPRS/EDGE): 900/1800 MHz

For those wondering if this'll work in the US, it won't. When it comes to 3G, T-Mobile US uses 1700/1900 and AT&T uses 850/1900. Both networks use 700/1700/1900 for 4G.. and not a single one of those frequencies are supported. :(

Nokia 1020 has a sealed battery. External battery are generally ok. But this way, I can get data via the Netgear but also get txt and call on my UK number as normal. Only charges will be roaming calls and txt which I can more easily regulate and track.

Good spot. I need it for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Bali, Vietnam and Australia, which are all fine. Sorry to all those who wish to use in the US. As it looks like you can't use it there. My bad.

So no extra charges in many places abroad.

I know. I am on Three and have used it on many occasions. However, Singapore and Malaysia are not one of those countries, so Feel at home is no good to me whilst travelling there. When they become part of those countries, then I will not need this any more. By then the Netgear will have paid for itself.

Everywhere in Vegas gives you free WiFi. Most hotels do, all restaurants do, even the shopping centres give out free WiFi, especially macys
#40
There's no point buying a 4G mifi to use with Feel at Home, because Three doesn't have 4G roaming.
