This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Introduced in 2018 an amazing piece of hardware if you are thinking of a mobile broadband seriously.
netgear.co.uk/hom…spx

As with some other deals best to order from O2 via 'Pay device in full' option and cancel within a few days to keep the device.

You may need to call O2 for unlocking code if you want to use it with other networks.

I have been using it almost every weekday for roughly 10 months so can recommend as an excellent pocket router for mobile broadband out there (maybe better than its successor Netgear M2)

Might wait for 5g, although I doubt it will get out here to the sticks.
3gb data tho, that would be gone in an instant
I have read somewhere once that this one has a draft 5G so I think even though it does not say 5G it is much faster than 4G.
I have actually managed to run speedtest in some locations with download results over 100Mbits so way above what standard 4G speeds are:

Needless to say it was achieved with a 4G plan. On EE pay monthly. Results for other networks may and will vary.

Where I am I get about 12Mbps on a 4G mobile broadband WiFi dongle (on Vodaphone), with an external antenna on the roof. Probably down to the coverage out here. I'm not sure a more capable 4G unit would do better. Not £200 more sure anyway.

I don't get it. 3gb is nothing!
A couple of laptops on these and windows downloads an update without you knowing your limit is busted, I'm on a 20gig sim and I got caught out one month last year.

I can see people do not realise that this deal is about device itself
Once out of the contract Netgear M1 can be used with likes of the below Sims hotukdeals.com/dea…821

I was also pointing out as the user above me that 3gig is nothing if an update comes down to those that don't know.
Checking you sim deal i'm on 20gig/£14 with Three but wanting a BT data sim as Three signal has dropped in the area's I use most and getting faster network from the phone.

My Netgear mifi £120 is in a draw as the external aerial pin came off and it won't connect to the network so back on my TP mifi.
The 5G option is holding me back from swapping yet.

I can get that sort of speed on a 4G phone in certain areas so 4G can be fast.

I also get that sort of speed on my iPhone . I’m on bt with the extra speed plan which EE also do, I’d guess you have that added which would account for the results.

What handset model are you using if I may ask? Genuinely interested

I am on EE Essentials plan on my Netgear M2 with no extra addons and a single 4G speed so I am really surprised as to how I got about double (or triple) 4G speeds.
I guess it's all down to how much speed is allowed by network based on what device are you using.
To prove my point I tested (number of times actually) speeds between a standalone mobile of whatnot (not flagship) smartphone with EE Max (full speed 4G LTE) and a (premium) Netgear M1 with Essentials (single speed 4G).
Guess what--same time, same location tests revealed Essentials on M1 was much faster than Max on midranger Phone.
Bottom line is I think some networks (EE almost definitely) allow very good speeds for flagship phones and throttle speeds for non flagship (mid— and lowrange) ones.

P30 pro.

Don't know if this makes a difference

This setting on Huawei handsets seems to have no effect (you can Google this).
In my opinion Huawei firmware forces High Speed LTE to be enabled even with the option being disabled. Regular (single) 4G speed technically maxes at only around 28Mbit so your phone is definitely using LTE+ (multiple 4G speeds)

Well same SIM in two different phones has different result. A70 getting 70 download and P30 is getting about 110 download.

Thank you. One would think this is just down to slightly upgraded LTE modem on the Huawei P30 Pro but I think what I said in my post above about data speed shaping (profiling) by network operators still applies.
The more premium phone you get the more bandwidth allocation is given to you thus discriminating non flagship handsets.
