If you look on EE's website you'll find its £100 for the same as this, and contracts offering 24gb of data would cost you in excess of £120

Don't mislead people
I can't help but think that if I left this in my car, it wouldn't be long before someone put my window through to nick it!
Not very clued up on these things. Anyone care to explain the pros and cons of this deal and perhaps links to better options if any?
Excellent deal been looking for one of these. 24gb internet over 12months useful. Anyone know how easy to unlock to use a 3 sim?
judt use your phone for hotspot
This would be a great idea if the data was good for the whole of Europe. Just rang EE and the guy on the end of the phone was unable to tell me a lot. Just not all the data is valid in the EU just some. I think its 100mb a month like the phone contract but its unclear. This would be great for a UK sales rep who needs internet access on laptop and phone. It is cheaper than a contracted deal.

On a 24month contract that gives the dongle with 2GB data a month for £11 plus £19.99 upfront, that totals £283.99

This is not directly comparable because it's a one off payment of £69.99 for effectively half the data you'd get for your 24 month contract.

You have to make you own mind up which is cheaper/better.

Not bad, if you need the car mifi, but not amazing if younare only getting for the sim...you can regularly get 6gb (3 month Sims) for under £15 on Amazon.

My mistake I thought it was 2gb a month for 12 months plus £19.99. I was not trying to mislead anyone, just thought it was a good deal. I won't post another for fear of upsetting you.

Unlocking is what I plan to do when I have used the data. I think you just have to pay for the unlock from EE. Time will tell.

Very difficult. I purchased one of these and sold it on eBay as in my opinion it is inferior to the Buzzard 1. The Buzzard 1 can be unlocked for free or as cheap as 99p on eBay. The easiest route to unlocking the Buzzard 2 i guess would be through EE at a cost of £10-£15.

The other issues with this vs the 1st Gen are it plugs straight into the 12v socket (no usb to 12v adaptor) and it does not auto on when you turn the ignition on like the Buzzard 1 does. You have to press the power button each time you want to use it. I personally want a seamless experience for it to auto on and my phone to connect as it would with any other WIFI; makes it more prominent for me as my 1st Gen is hidden in the boot.

Plus with 1st Gen you could use it as a standard 4G modem outside of the car due to it's USB connectivity.

why don't you go and research come back and let us know.
Not bad.

6GB/3mo is £15 payg, so looks like the dongle works out at a tenner (£20-30 on Ebay), so heat.

Yep agree with that.

I have my buzzard one in my glovebox.Heat from me anyway for 24gb data and the possible resale value of the buzzard 2.

Good point. Theifs only break in if they can see something... they would never smash a window on the off chance....

Unless your car glove compartment has a glass lid I don't see how any potential thief is going to see what's inside without breaking in first.

It's common sense to keep valuables out of sight when you leave your car.

Thieves take a massive risk when they break into a car, if it looks like there is nothing of worth in the car, it will most likely be left alone.

Your house is just as vulnerable and you don't empty that every time you go out...... Do you?

Lol
Guys, this looks like a good deal with 69.99 for 12 month with 24gb data which comes to ~ 5 pounds per month. Am I missing something here as the web site doesnt indicate anything about a contract. Is this a 24 month contract?

Hi it's a one off payment, once the 24gb is used you top up or buy another sim card.

why not try something like. "this deal here is just as good / better / an alternative ..... ( this space being where you post the deal you've bothered to research)" instead .....

And you've quoted a price that appears to be £22 for the rest of us but I'm happy to be shown to be incorrect if you'd be so kind to show us how to get 16GB for £11 a month.

I chose the option that includes the 4G car mifi dongle incidentally, that seemed to be the logical comparison to this deal.

I'm a bit puzzled as to why this deal has got you so hot and bothered but I'm more concerned that I actually give a toss to reply. I've had a word with myself and punched myself in the nuts to remind myself that it's only HUKD.
