not as advertised
Has Togo logo on it, never heard of it, works intermittently and is a complete pain wish I had never bought it
when it does try to connect it comes up up in Spanish
trys to connect says its connected but no service
an absolute pain in the ass
buy this at your peril
the company that sold this to me should not be on Amazon
says its a 3G unlocked dongle but its clearly Spanish in origin it should not be on Amazon
COMPLETELY CRAP

Arrived a few days earlier than expected with super saver delivery.

Plug and play with ubuntu, no drivers to install or anything.
I havent tested it in windows.

I shoved in a giffgaff sim and works perfectly. Would definitely recommend

This was not what was advertised. It's locked to 3G. I have submitted complaints about the incorrect description and lack of and endcap. My complaint being that the device was incomplete and not as described or depicted in the advert and the supplier was not willing to provide a return address.

Whe I click on the decription on my completed orders page, the link takes me to the same advert but the supplier is "caspar" or sometimes "good4U". My unit was actually supplied by Ian Halling of EezyPC
54 Ley Orchard
Willersey
Broadway
Worcs
WR12 7PW

I left a review stating my displeasure with the product and supplier, but where it went, God knows! I think the supplier the orders description took me to at the time was good4U, the same description on
my received orders has now taken me to to the same product but the supplier is caspar!

I realise from the feedback that there were problems with past units, but I never thought a supplier through Amazon could continually peddle goods that were inferior and not as advertised.

First I need to say that this particular unit was still locked to the "3" network despite it being advertised as unlocked. Since it was a second hand unit and cheaper than new ones, I just decided to pay 4 euro using DC_unlocker and unlock it myself. Cheaper than returning it and buying a new one (which might also not be unlocked).

Having said the above, how does it work? Well, on XP, it will install its drivers and then you can use it on the "3" network. It is not easy under XP (or any Windows OS) to use it on another network even when it is unlocked. This is because the drivers and built-in software is locked to "3". However, for me this is no issue since my netbook has Ubuntu Linux on it. Since the built-in software does not auto-install, you don't have the same issue. Under Ubuntu 12, this device is simply plug and play since Ubuntu has built in drivers for it and the network manager application can configure the connection information you very easily in a "wizard" fashion. Hence, it is a doddle to use this on any network once unlocked. Another reason not to use Windows (Ubuntu is free as well by the way, give it a try).

The e353 has the newest chip set in it and it can achieve very fast speeds with good reception and where the latest 3G technology is available. For areas where reception is poor, the e353 also has an external antenna port that will allow for better reception.

This internet dongle is really great. I was able to get 5 Mbps speeds from it on 3G...4G networks haven't been setup in my area yet. I was told that the speed will improve to over 7Mbps when 4G is accessible.

YouTube videos load very fast and i even tried streaming HD TV and it worked surprisingly well. Downloading 1GB file doesn't take very long and the internet is very reliable. My friend used my internet and thought i was using ADSL broadband.There aren't intermittent disconnections like I've experienced with other dongles.

I've been purchasing Huawei dongles for years now and the speed of each one increases every time. The last dongle i bough last year reach speeds of 2-3 Mbps, so i'm glad for the extra 2 Mbps speed. I would definitely recommend this dongle to casual and serious internet users. This definitely rivals speed and quality of ADSL broadband connections.

This high speed dongle will easily give speed in excess of 8mb/sec, which is good for streaming TV or films.
For downloading via mobile broadband it allows large files to downloaded vey quickly.

I bought this dongle for internet abroad with local SIM cards. Worked well in the UK and checked for compatibility with operators abroad. However, despite positive compatibility, connecting did not work abroad. Have not explored all the avenues to resolve this (will do at some point), but was somewhat disappointed that it stumbled.

Would be grateful to receive any pointers from other users who succeeded in connecting.
