Product Description

Our USB modems are unlocked for use with any network in the world (where compatible frequencies exist) and will allow you to connect to The Internet using a local data enabled sim card or suitable worldwide sim. If you have a data bundle with any service provider, you can use that sim card subject to entering the provider's settings. If you don't have a data bundle or just want a dedicated sim card, you can purchase any data sim and use a normal Top-Up scheme or online Top-Up scheme to credit the sim. It's so easy to never be without the internet. New to the concept of Mobile Broadband? Mobile Broadband: What is Broadband on the Move? Broadband on the Move gives you internet access, without wires, over the air. You do not need a telephone line, or to be in a Wi-Fi area to get online but instead by using a USB Modem with your Laptop or PC you can have access to fast broadband, when you are on the move. Once you have plugged in your USB Modem you can have access to the internet anywhere in the coverage area (see Section below on Network Coverage), giving you portable access to broadband, when you are on the move. It's easy to set up and easy to use - anywhere! Use the USB Modem with your laptop or PC to surf the Internet or send and receive emails. What's in the Box Broadband USB Stick / Dongle supplied without sim USB cable (non-essential) Features HSDPA/WCDMA 2100MHz HSDPA 3.6Mbps USB Interface and Micro SD card slot Installs automatically and easy to use System Requirements Windows 2000/XP/Vista or Mac OS X 128MB of RAM 50MB free hard disk space or above USB slot You should check mobile broadband coverage and anticipated speed for your locality prior to purchase.

Remember the days when dialup internet was the norm? and when you press a link, you had to wait, and wait and wait! and sometimes it didnt load! instead you get "page couldnt load" or some excuse.

Now enter the world of mobile internet.
I personally found it pretty easy to set up. Just plug it in a USB slot, install when prompted and then press CONNECT.

The software also keeps you well informed of how much bandwith you are using and what your current credit is.
Also you can have people send text messages to the number (shown in the software) and you can read and reply for those messages on your computer.

Also the USB dongle is wide, so if you have two usb slots close together, like on a Hp G62 or Apple Macbook (im told) you will have to use the usb extension cable (provided in the box) to make use of both ports.

The biggest gripe is that vodafone's website shows excellent coverage in areas such as Lancaster and Barrow-in-Furness. However the truth is that its not great, the connect is unreliable.

You are paying far too much for 3gb for 30days and to get a unreliable connection. If i were you, i'd see what kind of speeds/connection you get on your phone's mobile internet.

For example O2 in Lancaster is great for me, so i'd just go and buy the one who can supply with a better and faster connection( although O2 officially dont recommend buying mobile internet for Lancaster!).

In the good old days when you purchased a top up it would last and this would be ideal for the occasional usage, covering normal broadband in the home etc. But recently Vodafone have changed the terms and conditions, meaning that any top up expires after 30 days. Thus you have to purchase a new top up every 30 days. This is very poor from Vodafone and means that it is hardly a pay as you go deal any longer - really it's the same as a contract, having to pay again every month. So if you are thinking of purchasing one of these dongles beware of what you are letting yourself get into.
