Be very careful when ordering this product. It is not good enough just to be a 3 mobile broadband user, it is not even good enough to be a user of a 3 mobile broadband modem, you have to have the RIGHT 3 mobile modem. I ordered this router, it was delivered and I thought - good we can now use multiple laptops anywhere we go. I set it up as per the instructions, all well until I tried to connect a laptop wirelessly to the router. It wouldn't do it. I retried everything several times, and finally discovered that I had the wrong modem. Looking at the 3 website, most of the modems available are wrong too. This product will only operate with Huawei modems, not the ubiquitous ZTE modem. The third party supplier's response was a polite version of hard luck, and I have temporarily swapped modems wih a friend who has a Huawei modem. We just changed simcards, and all seems OK.
Having said all that, if you have a Huawei modem, this is a marvellous piece of kit, in that, wherever you go, you can take your wireless connection with you. Soon a landline will be superfluous. Next time I move, if not before, it will be bye-bye BT/ Virgin, I will be all mobile. Anything over 1 Mbps download speed, and 15GB monthly download limit is plenty for two of us, (we're not into music or video piracy), just general browsing and e-mailing. Any large downloads can be done overnight. I'm sure some people will laugh at those speeds and capacities, but I'm sure they will improve as network capacity increases, but for now the versatility and capability is what is important.
