Orange are offering a 30 day broadband contract with 3gb minimum allowance for £14.68 plus the cost of the dongle £29. Quidco are offering cashback of £40 meaning the total cost comes out to be £3.68 after the month for the DONGLE AND 3GB ALLOWANCE. This is far cheaper than any PAYG deals on at the moment, comes with a generous 3GB allowance and perfect for anyone who wants to try it out. If you don't like it, sell the Dongle or keep it for future use.

Bought one a month ago on 18m contract and retained coverage from London to Eaglescliffe train journey! Have managed to stream videos on YouTube aswell so can't fault it as yet!

What are the orange T&Cs for paying the £40 Quidco though?
#2
None stated on quidco and generally they pay out. Paid me £60 for the contract I took out a month ago when they first launched it... Where would one find Orange T&C's for quidco?

Usually on the cashback offer page. If none are stated then it looks a pretty good offer :)
#4
This probably means you have to cancel, otherwise they will charge you for the next month and so on...
#5
Not as good as the previous O2 deals we've had - with no contract to cancel

But, O2 currently would cost £4.35 for the first month (3GB) after Quidco so I suppose this is better. Not voted

Got this on my work laptop.Its cheap but its basically dial up speeds.OK for viewing the net but not much good for anything else.

If you're only getting a GPRS signal, then yes it won't be any faster than a 56kbps dial-up.

However, with a good 3G signal and an HSDPA device (which presumably this dongle is - though predictably this information has been ommited from the Orange website...) you will be able to get anything upto 7.2Mbit.

There are 1024MBs to 1GB


Bzzzt, wrong. Orange=fail.

Well it can get a 3G connection and I have been able to steam youtube without problems or stuttering! Hope it helps!

How's Orange wrong by saying 1024mb = 1gb?? 1gb does equal 1024mb, thats what everyone uses as the meaning. Unless your an ISP or hard drive manufacturer, and you want to screw consumers over by using the literal latin meaning of the word. There was a case of Seagate being sued, and then offering partial refunds, for those they conned out of the extra space.
#10
Firstly 1024MB is 1GB, secondly Orange have 93% 3G coverage which is more than any network so if your in a town or city you should no problems getting coverage. However Orange only go up to 3.6Mb/s, I'm pretty sure Vodafone was getting sued for saying theirs goes up to 7.2 Mb/s (I May be wrong). I have an Orange employee account and I use my Nokia N95 as a modem and I always get about 0.5Mb/s which easily does the job for browsing (but I live in London which is pretty much all covered by 3G).

Thirdly VERY HOT DEAL!!!

Not everyone - just the misinformed.

1000 MB = 1GB
1024 MiB = 1GiB

No not really, all RAM manufacturers use the GB to represent the GiB. It's a common usage which although technically incorrect, is colloqially correct.
#13
If you want to be extremely technical, but thats the IEC recommended usage of prefix, instead of the traditional usage, still promoted by JEDEC, which everyone still uses in the world of IT (i'm a software engineer and never seen the GiB prefix used).
#14
The crusade of correction has to start somewhere, why not in an off-topic rant @ hukd :roll:

Next crusade; teach people that 'til or til are the proper abbreviation for until, not till or worse still 'till :x

Might I suggest the inappropriate usage of apostrophes before the letter s. Especially in plural.

"Look at all the cat's over there". *Shudder*
#16
Ah it's actually a contract - just a 30 day one rather than PAYG.

Was gonna get - but can' be bother trying to cancel it. I bet they require 30days notice which means I'll have to cancel it the day I receive it!
#17
I did the same thing with 3.

Got a 1 month contract with 5GB allowance for £15 + £10 for the dongle - then got something like £23 cashback. It should still work.
#18
never buy one instead of having home broadband, they have rubbish allowances and charge a bomb

There's a better and cheaper way to get mobile internet. You buy the dongle, flash it with a certain firmware, and you buy a Pay as you go iphone O2 sim from ebay for ~£11 (includes £10 credit), and you can get internet for free for 12 months. No GB allowance, it's unlimited.

02 are stopping the people who do this. They can tell if it's being used in an iphone or not and if not, they stop the free internet :p
The sim is meant for an iphone :thumbsup:

Who has ever used that suffix? 1024MB is 1GB, that's all.
#28
Thanks for posting but the 02 Deal is better in my opinion (without Quidco).

02 dongle is now half price - £14.67
£15 month for 30 day pay and go internet with 3gb limit
plus free WIFI - not sure if your orange deal includes this

= £29.67

I can vouch for this. I had the SIM from a PAYG iPhone in my Archos 5g IMT and it worked brilliantly ... until I started getting texts from O2 saying the SIM was meant for use ONLY in an iPhone. I even added credit to the account but it was to no avail as O2 blocked the SIM from working as it wasn't in an iPhone :(

I would be interested if you could get one for £11!

Last time I looked (admittedly around 2 weeks ago) they were selling for ~£40
#31
Be aware... having had orange mobile for a month at a cost of £60 in total, the connection was very slow and very dissapointing. As for Quidco, well I am still waiting over 4 months now for my cashback on another product (insurance)

there was an offer to get one from 3 that you only paid the postage.... i dont think that is available anymore

back to the other posts, the 1024 / 1000 K debate will rage on and its worth noting as I believe apple will change shortly to 1000 notation which will have the effect of making their storage seem alot better than others, files will also appear larger tho but its good to know as things are not always what they seem ;)

and for mobile internet the best "deal" if you are actually going to pay for it and just want it for remote browsing and not downloading is the 12 month deal orange tuck away, all these x gig permonth contracts have caps on the data per month and what you dont use is not rolled over so in reality you wont be able to or actually use that much but over the year you still pay alot in total, they sell 12gig valid for 12 months for £80, it seems alot but it means if you use only a small ammount then next month you still have access to as much as you want, so over the year it works out better, this is probably better for people who already have broadband but do need uk coverage whilst travelling.

Hi this is my first time on the forum and hope lt it will be of interest to some one -- i rang bt and found they do a dongle that costs £39 inc vat which gives you 1gb of usage per month which lasts for eighteen months for me its perfect as i have broadband at home and its ideal for when im away from home working or travelling and if you do mange to use the 1gb per month you can get it topped up i believe it was £5 per gb but as i havent had to top up yet im not exactly sure so please don't quote me on this. i believe the network it runs on is the vodaphone network.
#34
Looking at the geek speak in this thread I guess the old saying is true

There are 10 types of people in the world, those that understand binary, and those that don't
#35
this is great
get your quidco then sell the dongle back in its packaging on ebay for at least £30
not kidding.
so you make £30 with this easy
#36
o2 offer a PAYG mobile broadband deal for £15 for 3 gigs/1 month - no contract needed. You can also buy access for a day or a week if it suits better. Unlimited BT Openzone and 'The Cloud' WiFi access is included when you buy 3G airtime.

The dongle is £30 but there are frequent offers with the dongle being much less, or even free.
#37
Is there any way around the £3.99 delivery charge?
#38
Has anyone earned the cashback off of this deal? I am not sure whether to go for this one or the 3 prepayed one, but the cashback being paid may be the clincher.
