would be excellent deal except your credit is only valid for 30 days , so a tenner minimum a month if you need mobile broadband
#2
but absolutely no tie ins - so would be good as a spare / occasional use when away from home.

This is a modem only offer, so no credit. Are you referring to when you top up?
#4
I've got one of these so I can use the laptop when I'm on holiday and things. I paid £50 though!
#5
DAMN - I paid £15 for something similar!!!!!!!!

I could have got a new one for a few quid extra!!!!!!!!!!
#6
Vodafone is the still the best of pay as you go, even if the stick costs between £30 -£40 ,as the credit you buy does not expire!
#7
I don't think top ups that you buy expire.

Promo credit may expire but I think they've made a bit of a mistake saying top ups expire.
#8
There seems to be several modems available, anyone know which is the best?
#9
don't suppose these can be unlocked can they?
#10
Do none of the mobile companies do a mobile broadband tariff based on data usage that is not time limited? Why is it not like a normal mobile where you buy minutes, but in this case you buy bandwidth. ARGH!

3 do a 1 year PAYG with modem that is pre-loaded with 12Gb of bandwidth to be used for 1 year. It was priced at £100. If you consume the 12Gb you can top up for £15 per Gb
#13
You must buy the broadband add-on (1gb,3gb,7gb) after topping up, it isn't automatic. The SIM behaves just like PAYG it's even on the same tariff (Flat 12).

You can however buy the add-on whilst adding credit to your account which is quicker.

The internet bundle lasts 30 days, but the sim works just like a normal payg sim AFAIK so if you put £20 on then you can do the bundle twice so you get two months rather than losing the £10 at the end of the first month.

"When you top up a cash credit, it doesn't have any expiry date. But when the
cash credit is converted an Add-on then it's valid for 30 days from the day
it comes into effect. And on a broadband account if cash credit is not
converted to a broadband Add-on then you'll be charged £1 per MB to access
internet."

Apparently the reply from three. Pretty much what i said.

There is one that cost around an extra £10, but I think that it has a faster top speed, though I'm not sure whether 3's network (yet) supports the faster top speed that the modem is capable of. If anyone else can deny this or confirm it, I'll edit.

I imagine that this would be because you measure internet allowance in how much you download far more than you measure how much time you spend on. If you're near a tower and running near top speed you'll burn through much more data than if you're in a poor coverage area in the same time so to measure in minutes is a "less fair" way to sell. In my eyes anyway.

Thanks, I've gone for the one that looks the best! I'm not bothered about the top speed, half a megabit is fine.

You won't burn through more data just because you're near the tower, doing the same amount of stuff will use the same amount of data wherever you are. Granted you may do more in the same time if it's going faster.

Either way, he said for it be on amount of data but with no time limit. Ie you buy 1GB and rather than run out at the end of the month it runs out when you've used 1GB.

is it possible to get any of these mobile broadband sticks to work with xbox 360?

No peteh not directly but you can connect them to some 3rd party routers and use it that way but the latency or more commonly known as lag would be so high as to render XBL play unplayable.

From what I understand Three have the best coverage.
#23
good price voted hot.

Does anyone know if the voda dongle works with ubuntu?
The 3 one did when I had one. No setup or anything- just plugged it in , selected it in the network manager and bingo.
#24
I have an Acer Aspire One netbook which runs on Linux OS. Is this compatible with it?
#25
Got a 3 payg dongle a few weeks ago, worked fine for 2 weeks now download speeds never reach more than 50k dropping to less then 10 after 5 pm.
Its in the bin, will give vodaphone a go next.

Because he said "I could have got a new one for a few quid extra!!!!!!!!!! " I suspect he was talking about a second hand one.
#28
AVOID the three network at all costs they are massively over subscribed already, download speeds are 2-5k/s at night in my area. I also get massive lag and constant time outs.

Search the web for three + slow + your area and you'll see thousands of complaints.

That's correct. I bought one last month. There's also a huge catch-which appears to me to simply be a rip-off.

When you top up with £10, they tell you you have to convert top-up to an add-on (think it's that way round), otherwise they (over) charge you by the MB. When I tried to do this, they then told me I had already used some of my credit ( I had only been on their site!) and couldn't convert to the £10 (lowest) monthly tariff. They said I had to put more money in.

I told them to cancel the account and remove my debit card details. They said they couldn't do that for 28 days! I cancelled my Debit card with my bank to stop them taking any more money.

why would they take your money on direct debit - this is pay as you go.

TYPICAL! . i bought it from maplin 2 days ago at £30 ! ...

It's a "cash Back" program, for consumer loyalty......Google it, and see their site.

I've never used it, but people here are always quoting it, so I think that it's reputable.

Cheers.

I think i'll give it a miss.

He travels into London for his work and just described it as "well.. you get signal.. but it's basically dialup on the go"

But that in central Watford he can achieve up to 200KB/s but then the speeds fluctuate ALOT even when stood still. Overall 'shaky'

This really isn't ready for public release is it.. lol
#38
Its not the same as the normal internet add-on for PAYG. I use 3 PAYG and the internet add-on is £5 a month for 1 GB of downloads on your phone so whats the difference? It doesn't seem like you get any faster speeds.

I am signed up to a 3 mobile broadband contract for 18 months. My child has just broken the dongle for the second time, and 3 are asking £100 for a replacement. Will I be able to use this one as a replacement even though it is payg.
