EE Osprey 2 + 32Gb 4GEE Data £9.99 + £28pm 30 day rolling contract at PC World

LocalFound 7th Apr 2016
Just popped into my local PC World to take advantage of the £9.99 deal on the Osprey 2, when I asked about alternative plans, a 32GB 4GEE tarring for £28 pm came up. Considering 15GB is £20, this is a great deal, and even the PC World employee was confused as to why that deal was available.

Was on his computer system, so assume national.

20gb for £8 month?
How did you pull that one off?
I get 50mbps through my phone (note 4) when I tether.

Will this be able to provide that kind of speed?

It's pretty much the same speed as a good quality 4G phone. I know people who have got 50Mbps in London area.

​I've had over 40 on mine so I don't see why not.
not sure why this has been voted cold.
Me either. You can just cancel on day 1 and have paid £38 for a £30 device and have had 32Gb for £8!

EE's network is brilliant and these things are great when up and running. They have a time out facility which means that they go into standby after a period of inactivity (30 mins I think). To get them up and running you need to press the button for a second to bring them out of standby. Makes them wholly unsuitable as a home broadband alternative. I've had one and at the same time sourced another for a less technical person who was out of their home in temporary accommodation. They are a nightmare. In the space of a few months they've needed hard reset at least twice and repeated difficulties coming out of a period of inactivity requiring the device to be switched off and then switched on.

This is easily turned off in the menu. Sounds like you had a faulty one. I talk from experience

there is no option to turn off wifi timeouts on this model
I've had mine running since i purchased it, and it has never timed out...? We get a rock solid 40Mbps down and 30Mbps up. Considering replacing my main broadband!

Me neither, but I couldn't be arsed to argue. You can do whatever you can on a normal router really - custom SSID, WPA2 password, static IP range, turn off dhcp ... whatever.

Unless I'm misunderstanding him... it just works as I'd expect.
does anyone know if I can use an EE data sim from my USB dongle in this ?
beamersj

does anyone know if I can use an EE data sim from my USB dongle in this ?


yes works pefect
Can you buy the sim only?
Thanks for posting this op. Went out and purchased.

It's a 30 day rolling contract.

I purchased 3 days ago - and am going to call up today to cancel.

Can anybody give me tips on what to say to avoid and charges of any sort - I saw on another thread that early termination charges get added sometimes.
