This is cold, because we only use mobiles devices in cars, when we are wardriving. So why the ****, do we want to pay for it?

That's a really good price if 4G MiFi device. I wonder what OEM device it is based on, perhaps it can be unlocked/reflashed?

why not just use your mobile?

Buzzard 2 was just released so price drop inevitable.

Doh pressed cold when i wanted to press hot, sorry

If you have a decent mobile phone, you can tether the devices to it. So your kids can connect to the internet via your phone.
So there isn't any point to this, apart from carrying more crap!

Time to upgrade and kill to birds with one stone. You can pick up some basic androids for about £20 upwards

Would a different (non EE) sim work in this?

Saves phone battery.



So...why not plug phone in instead of this?
Only reason I think this could be useful is if someone has a crap data plan and there main use is for kids on long journeys then they could have a separate data SIM for these occasions.

Might work out worthwhile

Could this just be used as a 4g dongle, say for a laptop? Should be fine shouldn't it?

Not all networks/plans allow you to tether. As is they're not conning you enough...

Only really need if your phone doesnt support 4G and tethering.

Also downside it 2GB on 4G disappears like pulling the plug out of a sink of water. Its pretty much pointless if you start doing anything like youtube etc... Its gone in no time.

Amazing English in the OP. Really stellar.

I couldn't help but read this in a caveman accent! Gave me a good chuckle. Deal seems decent though

What would be smart is if EE started to give this with free 1 or 2 GB included in their home broad band packages!

Sorry im not a sheep, and I dont follow the flock of apple fanboys. So i couldn't tell you, if apple allows you to tether 100% or not. But, i wouldn't see apple falling so short of the mark, to allow the competitors have this feature, and them not!

I guess this true, from the information i have read about. Then, i am not a big mobile fan.

I'll stick with unlimited tethering via android

If you could get a bigger allowance sim in it, could be excellent for streaming music via your car's bluetooth if your phone doesn't have a big allowance or you don't want to use it.

3 MiFi is same price and better

No one has mentioned EE's data plans that go with these wifi dongles. Expiring data if you don't use it up no doubt. But a hot deal if you want EE 4G data anyway and could be used at home.

3 MiFi is same price and better Link please thanks :-)

Is this better than 56k dial up ?

That would be awesome; although EE broadband is just branded as EE, it's nothing to do with them.

If they offered a few GB for free on top of broadband per month I would stick with them. I hAve about 6 months left and am planning on running to BT.

OK. Bought one. How one earth do you access the content on the SD card?

SD card? lol
