Just returned from a trip to Thurrock, where Vodafone have a stand in PCWorld showing their USB laptop mobile dongles. I asked the details and told its £15pm and the speed was 7.8Mb. Wow - thats fast I though - much better than my 1.8Mb from T-Mobile at £7.50pm.
So I give it spin and do a speedtest on "thinkbroadband" and the speeds come back slower than what I currently get on a supposedly slower connection!
Hardly impressive stuff - and in an area that should have excellent coverage. Amusingly he countered that they were better than "Three" - but then they dont claim to have a 7.8Mb connection either!
