Shouldnt really include the quidco cashback in your price as this is NEVER guaranteed.
#2
Trouble is pat as you go is so expensive for the modem (most places £99) and charge a bomb for data. For travelling, i stick wiht 1Gb data allowance for a tenner and cant complain (except where there is no 3g/HSDPA)

Been looking at the mobile broadband deals this weekend.

Has anyone used any of these providers for mobile broadband? The costs seem ok but my main concern is coverage - id be wanting to use it on the train every day.

Cheers Garbage, been looking out for peope using them so i could ask someone how it was working out :whistling:

I am using T-mobile one for the last 10 months. It is the best of lot because even if you exceed 3GB limit, they won't charge u. I use around 5-6 GB every month. Never been charged extra so far.Only one warning letter even though. My flat mate is using 3 network. It is lot slower compared to mine. T mobile is faster than they advertise. But only downside is they reduce the picture clarity.

Frankly, I dont understand the price is good for current market £10 for 3Gb data in a month and what they are promising is possible as well (1.8 Mbps). nobody else is offering that price.

now what most of the people are talking here is the price and speed will change as wireless broadband is becoming more and more common. but if you can closely see th CPU cashback is till 8th months and so without breaking the contract you can easily change the package to match at that time.

Hi all
interested in this for my Dad

Facts say T-Mobile currently quote speeds up 1.8Mbps.

Now excuse my ignorance but is this almost the same as a 2 meg adsl line?

The reason i ask is that Dad's adsl in Cumbria is 2 meg at best so he would not notice the difference.

the benefit for me is that this is 3GB per months as opposed to 3's 1GB per month and the coverage where he is going is described on t-mobiles site as excellent.

But... the coverage where his house is at the moment is zero so will this drop down to 2G broadband in this case or will he get nothing?

thanks for any info

it will change to O2 GPRS


on t-mobile?

Does t-mobile drop down to O2?

So in theory he could still pick up his emails?

Clarity of any picture is grainy. i.e the resoultion of pictures are reduced. You need to press shift+r button to get quality pictures in any websites. T-mobile do this to make faster surfing.

Interesting....

How much is the resolution reduced - does it look really bad?

Anyone know if 3 do the same?

thanks for the info

If 750p a month then its better than some ISPs for 3 gig.

Its just a pity to get a good price you are expected to jump through a series of hoops.

I've been using T-mobile on 24 month contract for my main internet for about 4 months.
Web page speeds are probably slower than ADSL (Pipex 1Mbps), I think this is probably due to their proxy server. Downloads are if anything faster than I used to get on the ADSL. and youtube seems to work at least as well. I find also that quite frequently web page access will drop out and I have to disconnect and re-connect to restore it. It's just about usable as main internet but I have to say not as reliable as ADSL.

On the subject of the image compression it does degrade images but it's not too annoying and usually hitting shift r while hovering over an image with the mouse will load the full resolution version. My main point for posting however is that T-mobile have a utility you can download called something like webnwalk Accelerator which allows you to change image compression from full to none so it doesn't have to be a problem at all.
I find the 'soap on a rope' modem quite annoying, the way it dangles around from the back of the laptop. I would like to get my hands on the usb stick type that vodafone are currently showing off.
As for coverage I haven't had any problems although I've only tried a few locations.

On the whole I'm pretty happy with the service and will probably look to renew the contract, hopefully by then the few niggles will have been sorted.

I chose T-Mobile as, using it as my main provider, I thought I could comfortably stick within their 3GB per month limit and so far I've managed it with no problem.

Just done some more digging on the T-mobile site:
They are also offering some packages with a 'stick' modem. The Accelerator program that allows image compression to be set is only in the download section for the soap on a rope modem, not the 'stick' so to play it safe I'll assume it won't work on the stick for now.

i dont think this is £60 quidco, clearly states £5 for other phone sales, i do not see this being a contract phone sale as its a modem not a phone.


£5 for other phone sale, including SIM only contracts - on a per transaction basis, not per phone
5% for accessory, ringtone or other sale, including PAYG SIMs
£60 for contract (pay monthly) phone sale - on a per transaction basis, not per phone
£20 for any contract taken out with the IPhone
£50 for AOL broadband


garbage was just coming to this thread to ask the same question.

Can anyone confirm that CPW consider a broadband 3G USB modem to be a phone sale?

Anyone actually had one track / validated in Quidco?

I have Vodafone 3G PCMCIA card. Most of the time it sets itself to GPRS (which is a pain) and only rarely (if I am in a big city, for example) goes to 3G. Even then the data transfer rate is nothing to should about, very rarely exceeding 300Kbps. It could be my card, of course but other guys in our company reported the same thing.

As to 3 (the company) - not with a bargepole.

ordered a mobile broadband yesterday and received a mail from the retailer, giving me information including ''Your new mobile number'' (with a look-like phone number followed)... do mobile broadbands (contract) always come with a mobile number? why? and what do i do to set up a connection when it arrives?

thanks a lot in advance.
#21
I presume it would be ok to put the sim into a suitable phone and use that as a bluetooth modem, or will it only work with a dedicated modem?

Also, if it can be used in a phone, is to possible to have some sort of pay as you go tarrif on the account?

Many thanks to anyone who can help.
