I bought this device to allow my partner and I to use our WiFi only iPads when we are out and about. We were both reluctant to sign up to yet another monthly payment as our usage is uncertain, and, so adopted the PAYG route. You can get 3GB SIMs for this MiFi unit on Amazon at prices which make buying a new SIM each time far better value for money than topping up the supplied SIM.

I am highly satisfied with this device. This MiFi unit is made for 3 by Huawei and comes complete with a USB lead to charge it from your PC together with a mains adapter and dock which is well weighted and provides an ideal stand for the device at home. I have found the performance to be good in most places I have used it (mostly in Sussex and Herts) and we have both managed to connect our iPads whilst parked up in the car and surf without difficulty (you can connect up to 5 devices). One thing you should be conscious of is that the closer the device is to your PC/iPad the better it works - you cannot compare the range with a mains powered router. Also, I have found that a good signal does not always mean the speed of the connection will be higher - there appear to be other factors which influence speed.

Turning to the device itself - it is small, slim, well made and a bit smaller than a mobile phone so it easily fits in your pocket. It has a display which gives you signal strength, battery level and the amount of data you have used etc. The display is helpful, and, in particular, the "data used" information is very useful this being a feature omitted from a more basic version of this device being sold by 3. Not having a "data used" display to me is a bit like driving a car without a fuel gauge. The display could be bigger, but, no doubt that would exert more strain on the battery.

Great piece of kit and very fast internet speeds, I get 3G every where with 3 network, I think 3 network are the best for 3G speed and coverage. The only downside to my purchase was the seller sent me a used one and there was no sim card with it so I did not get 3gb as promised and I got in contact with the seller and they were not at all helpful and they never replaced it, I would be in two minds about buying from MIXmedia in the future.

I have to say I'm surprised that the other reviewer had so many problems, as I've had no issues with this device whatsoever. It worked straight out of the box and is much better than my previous dongle.

The fastest download speed I've clocked it as is 10.1mb/s, although in the evenings it's usually somewhere between the 2 to 4.5 mark depending on your location, and time of day (just like the rest of the internet). I don't check the speed that often so whether it can go faster than 10.1 in my area I've no idea. Put it this way, at peak times you can still watch youtube without any lag, and day times it zings along without any issues.

I'm using Pay As You Go, so I just inserted my old sim card and away I went. I've since inserted the new one, but either way have experienced no problems accessing my account.

Battery life - I can't comment on that as I usually hook the E586 to my pc via the USB cable. Not something you'll want to do if you don't want to drain your laptop's battery, but if your laptop is near a power socket then the USB actually provides a faster connection than in mi-fi mode.

Plus it's future proof, being 4g compatible (when 4g is eventually rolled out). Unless I drop it down the toilet or lose it in a taxi, obviously!

This is great- very fast download speeds and works all over the places I have been so far in UK. its honestly like having portable broadband. I didn't know that 3 started the 3g network- it shows though and this little gadget is faster than any phone 3g connection I have seen. I am getting 7mb/s on this- twice the speed of my home network. Cheap to run also - just buy a card from Amazon and/or top up at a supermarket etc. Good product- can also connect multiple computers/phones and it has a good battery life.

- The device is HSPA+ but it will give you speed 7-10 mbps (theoretical max of 21 mbps) only if the n/w also supports HSPA+. The fact is entire network of 3 doesn't support HSPA+, forget about entire network not even entire london area on HSPA+. I stay in TW3 and getting speed of 1 mbps or lower. I purchased this based on reviews on net also 3 says the device is 40% faster on their website. I expressed my concerns to 3 customer support and to my surprise they are saying if you are getting anything above 400 kbps it is good. They also talking about all legal wording

- Yes device is 40% faster but we not saying you will get 40% faster speed
- We are not saying our entire n/w is HSPA+
- You should have checked about n/w and speed before purchasing the device
- You can not return the device because you opened it and used it for few hours. If I can't use it how would I get to knows about the performance of the device
- I am feeling helpless, though registered a complain

This is the second E586 I have owned and it has not disappointed (the first one died through no fault of its own as it had an encounter with prolonged water exposure). It is so easy to set up, just insert the sim card, charge the battery and you are on line almost anywhere. Up to 5 devices can access the internet at one time and the coverage on the "Three" network is excellent. I would recommend that you check the coverage in your area though or where you intend to use it. The only slight downside (and I have not marked it down as a result) is that the instructions were in German and it came with a 2 pin continental charging adaptor. For me this was not a problem as I still had the old 3 pin charger from my previous E586 but it is worth bearing in mind. Highly recommended for mobile broadband.
