This wi-fi hotspot really does work well. It is compact, neat and very useful. I often keep in my pocket when travelling and just link up with my tablet when necessary. I have not experienced any problems so far and the range is also good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little item 26 Jun 2013
Purchased this device because I was fed up paying for a landline which I never use in order to get broadband I charged it up inserted a sim (3) plugged into my laptop and connected to the internet in about 60 secs after driver installation. Have tried it in various locations including a notorious deadspot (HG3)and have got 4/5 bars. I have now cancelled my landline and broadband provider I am delighted with the performance so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works well without any dramas 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I took it out of the box, took the back and battery out, pushed in a SIM pre-loaded with 90 days' data on the 3 network, put it all back together, charged it up, turned it on, and I've never had any trouble at all. Connecting to it is as easy as connecting to the wifi in your house - all you need is the password. If there is a moan (and I love a moan) the password is written inside the back cover in such tiny printing in such a nasty font that I found it impossible to tell the difference between B and 8 without a magnifying glass. I wrote it much larger with a CD marker pen - there's plenty of room to write it bigger inside the back cover. The Interweb access is fast enough for a mobile device though of course speed certainly depends on your location. I can't tell you whether the instructions are clear and easy to follow because I never bothered to read them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent buy!!! 10 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
I cannot write a good enough recommendation for this handy device. I am glad I spent hours of research before making the right choice.
A little bit of background: I recently purchased a Microsoft Surface to make life easy instead of chugging my old Acer laptop 'everywhere I go' and obviously the first big problem staring at me was to get convenient, mobile internet. I initially juggled between getting a dongle or a mifi but decided to go for the latter as they offered a wider range of choices. Going for an unlocked device was an easy decision and the Huawei devices stood out.
Now this device, first the size. It is as small as a Samsung Galaxy mini and weighs even less. It doesn't even have to stay in your pocket, it can be inside your handbag on the seat opposite you, in your suitcase on the rack above your head, or in your backpack and still deliver seamlessly.
Opening the back cover and inserting the SIM card is much easier than replacing the SIM in my Samsung S3 and setting it up to use on my mobiles, laptop and tablet was as simple as searching for the network and typing the network key [conveniently located on the back cover] and hey presto! Full green service. Oh, and yes, it worked on all four devices at the same time.
Its hard to find fault with this device. I too find the blinking green light sometimes a tad bit annoying but that can easily be put down to neurosis. Also it does last FOUR HOURS, nothing more, nothing less! With the surface however, that is a miniscule problem as there is a handy USB port with which I can charge the device using a standard USB cable. I bought this with the EE 4G 6GB SIM card and at 38 quid, this little piggy is going 'wheeee!' all the way home!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality! 10 July 2014
I bought this as I was going into temporary accommodation & wasn't sure if I would have internet access. It's a really good little wireless dongle & with an EE sim, it has very good mobile broadband coverage. Although expensive to use mobile broadband, I found this to be a very good quality wireless dongle. I know I can rely on it if I need to use it again in the future.

Excellent portable device for use in locations where wifi is not available. Admittedly this is reducing in number but campsites in particular are often without wifi and so this device will allow emails or browsing (assuming of course telephone network permits).
