think the reason its "reduced" from £10 is because of the current vat rate...when the rate changes it'll be up to £10 again:whistling:
#2
looks good - only potential downside is 18month contract - do you know if you can "trade up" to a better tarrif if you find 1Gb too limiting...
#3
how much do they charge if you accidentally go over your 1GB allowance?

They start with arms and legs, and when you run out they go for your first-born.

"The out of bundle rate for all 18 and 24 month tariffs is just 1.43p/MB"
#6
Don't know for sure about the trade up but they're normally cool with you trading up as apposed to down.
#7
Spent the morning trying to get the Orange dongle working on the Isle of Wight (checked online which said we should expect 3.6Mbits/sec speed) but ended up cancelling contract as we were not able to get a decent signal yet the Orange mobile worked OK! BEWARE
Also 1Gb download allowance per month is pathetically small- a 1hour iplayer catchup is 600Mb!
#8
I voted hot but looking at the offer properly its 18 months not 12 so this isn't an amazing deal its just good for someone who would have it anyway...it would be a nice gimmick but not really something i need...

Can anyone recommend the cheapest option for about 3gb?

PAYG or monthly...
#10
Given the £100 Quidco cashback it works out @ around £4.45/mnth so pretty good for freedom from wired on light usage such as browsing & emails.

A 3Gb deal would work out @ £9.12/mnth.
#11
I need a dongle for work, and will use it for hotmail and work website access only. Can anyone tell me how much access I will get with 1gb p/m?

Also, any current orange users, how do you check what your using? And is there a facility to cut off when reached rather than going over without knowing??

Thanks in advance!
#12
I find that if only web browsing and e mails you hardly touch your allowance, download anything and it goes through the roof....
#13
1gb? cold. what a joke.

"The out of bundle rate for all 18 and 24 month tariffs is just 1.43p/MB"

intersting use of the word 'just' there.

that would make you 2nd gb £14,30.

don't see what the deal is here, 3 are still offering 15gb for £15.

Having used both side by side for mobile phones (3-personal, orange-work) in a nationally mobile role, I can say quite catergorically that orange's coverage is vastly inferior to 3's. of course, I have no idea if this trancends to broadband aswell. Only locatiosn I had real problem with signal on 3 broadband was Ipswich & Edgware. (and my mum's house in leeds, but that seems to be down to the amount of metal int he house construction! - crackign signal sat at one end of the lounge, nothing at the other!))

LMAO :-D
#16
15gb for 15 quid a month from three, a much better deal, if you need more usage. 1GB can go pretty sharpish, if you are doing anything other than browsing

Wouldnt it be 1.43p/MB * 1024 = £1430
lol
#18
For anyone wanting to use these things for work you need to check if they allow VPN connection or not.

I think at least one of the providers doesn't.

For just browsing and e-mail 1gb should be fine.

Would this work on a netbook running Linux?

I think a 1gb allowance for this price is good, most people will want this for when they are out and about with their laptop, ie, airports, cafes, etc, so donwloading big files isn't a big deal. It works out to be approximately 4hrs surfing a day, i'm tempted
#23
Cheap but 1gb would go so fast.
#24
This is good for a secondary source of internet, i.e. having normal broadband at home but using this when you're outdoors, in parks, hotels, airports etc. For that 1GB is good, especially as you have only use it a few times a week/month.
#25

That is not how mobile broadband deals work.

Reception is key to wether a deal is hot or not. I live near the centre of a major UK city and I've had nothing but probllems from three.

I get random disconnections but worse still I cannot connect smoothly to HSDPA. The connection constantly jumps from HSDPA to UMTS (3G) and regularly goes at 0-5/k a second and just hangs all the time.

I solved the problem by ditching the two USB dongles and instead using a vanilla 3G connection through an old three mobile phone.

Result, an almost perfect 3G connection. Thus anyone else experiecing this problem may want to bypass HSDPA altogether.

The result also is a much slower broadband connection unfortunately but I guess that's the price you pay for three's incompetence.

Incidently I've tried complaining about this but I refuse to use their 0870 support line as the normal 333 customer services is not available for broadband problems.
#26
A lot of the dongles are a bit useless for reception, yeah. Worth using a USB extension cable and hanging it somewhere higher (eg dangling out a window).

The internal 3g on the dell mini 9 is pretty good though.

Yes it is £4.45 per month if you are using it every month for 18 months. Maybe some people will but if you only use it as a secondary internet source occasionally or if you might move/travel somewhere orange coverage is bad. I would think most people using it that consistently would need more than 1GB, and people using it less consistently might as well get PAYG, but YMMV, ATS.

Or to put it another way, £76.22 over 18 months and you can't cancel it.
banned#28
Reduced from £10 to £9.79???...what a bargain !! haha
#29
Unless I'm misreading, Quidco says maximum discount for Orange is £50. See below:

"At the Orange online shop they have the latest mobile phones and a range of exclusive online pay monthly plans.

For genuine tracked transactions completed wholly online, you can earn:

£20 for Pay Monthly Contract SIM cards
£5 for Pay-As-You-Go phones
£50 for monthly contract (per transaction, not per phone basis) "


Where does the £100 come from?
#30
please check your area's signal strength/covergae from Orange befor buying as my neighbour bought it 2 months ago and I helped him to set it up. signal around our area (sutton, surrey) is very poor and the speed he got was worse than a dial up.

1.43p * 1024 = 1464p = £14.64


Opps i thought u mean £1.43 per mb.
1.4p seems really cheap
#32
My 02 dongle sticks out the window on a little metal frame with a plastic bottle ( from Lidl washing up liquid ) over the top.
It's important to try and get a good signal.

Coverage can vary so much between the providers and download speeds can vary so much even between streets a short distance apart.

I wouldn't sign up for anything other than monthly.

1 Gb is pitifully small.

Exactly, for an 18 month contract, how is this a good deal?

Atleast the other networks offer you more allowance for the longer contracts!
#35
I pay T mobile £15 a month on top of my phone contract, rolling 1 month sim only Solo contract, for an addon called mobile broadband max. Unlimited use with a fair use policy of 10GB (i think). You can use a lot of phones as modems, and have the bonus of internet on your phone. In my opinion these dongles are of little benefit when your phone can do the same job. For me it's just another device to carry around.
#36
I have a Three Dongle and it works brilliantly, at home and in the dales in my caravan.. 1 gb works fine i am online every day and as long as your not downloading music or movies i very rarely go over. This deal would be better if it was for 12 months but i like the fact i can opt out of topping up on my PAYG whereas here i bet its easy to go over and not realise

500 is the broadband support line direct from a mobile.

as for coverage, as I said, I've had little problems in truth. yes, cut off has happned, signal has gone down momentarilly, and occasionaly it's unavailable (very occasionally) but these are all issues i've faced with landline broadband in the past.

i think it's a crap price, as for secondary, i booted my landline into touch altogether a year and a half back in favour of mobile phone i had anyway, and mobile broadband. so £15 for 15g £ £15 for mob phone package. (assumign you have suitable signal, same assumption as per this 'deal') versus £10 for 1g, plus £10 for landline rental, plus £?? for call package plus £?? for landline broadband service.....
#39
Yes I ditched my BT landline a while back, sick of BT customer service and the quarterly line rental.

I use mobile phone and mobile broadband.
