If you've already got a laptop and you want to get online, all you need is a dongle. It's a light, portable device that looks like a memory stick and is smaller than a chocolate bar.
Dongles are also known as USB modems because they plug into the USB drive of your computer.
Instead of waiting until you find a free wireless network that you can get onto, or using your home broadband connection, a dongle lets you take your internet connection with you, wherever you go. It actually has a SIM card inside it and uses a 3G data connection to get you online. So wherever 3 has a mobile signal, you'll be able to get internet.
Some people choose to keep a dongle in their bag when they travel, just in case they can't connect to any local free wireless networks. You might have seen people using them on the train or at airports. They mean you can stay on top of what's happening in the office while you're on the move.
Other people like to use a dongle as backup internet connection at home, so if their land line is cut off, or if they have problems with their regular broadband connection, they can still access the internet, check their emails or talk on Skype.
Our dongles come with software included, so you just need to plug them in and you'll be up and running straight away.
Great all-round dongle with the latest HSPA+ technology.

Be warned, if you buy this item, Amazon will automatically assume you are interested in doing their job for them by providing free technical support to other customers via email. Regardless of your communication preferences, you will find yourself being emailed enquiries from random members of the public, such as "Does this item work with an iPad?", "What's a computer?" and "Why is the sky blue?" (That's where those "7 questions answered" come from in the description above.)
It's one thing to have questions posted on the product page should visitors be kind enough to answer them. It's quite another to invade my inbox with requests for me to do your job for you. If I had aspirations to answer inane technical enquiries for free, I'd get a work experience job as a "genius" at an Apple store. I don't have any such inclination to provide free customer support for Amazon or anybody else. Merely purchasing and reviewing an item doesn't change my clearly-expressed communication preferences.
Sort it out, Amazon. This isn't the only unsolicited email I've had from you recently, despite my preferences being clearly set to never receive any spam. It seems that after years of building up trust by initially respecting consumer communication preferences, you've merely become just another website that can't be trusted not to spam when provided with personal contact information.
The dongle itself is sleek in design and this version has the bonus of conecting once placed into your usb (whereas other previous versions had to be conected and disconected via a tab) only thing is though don't forget to diconect from your usb once finished surfing the net as it's easy to forget as there is nothing on screen to alert you that you are online.
SO to sum up if your looking for a dongle which gives you portability,are only using limited amount of internet usage (it does work out expensive if you download alot) and don't won't to be tied to a contract (although contracts are available) this might be the one ofr you.
This was puzzling as the box claims you get three months' worth of access included in the price. After many calls to customer service I'm still waiting to get the 3 months worth of credit. I have been given 1 GB instead whilst a very long technical issue is being resolved.
Also be beware that unlike other networks when Three says you get a month of internet access it actually means you get about eight hours and you have to top up again. Ie they expect you to only use the internet for 8 hours a month.
FINALLY and more alarmingly you cannot top up your credit with a Visa debit or credit card and you cannot buy anything on ANY website that involves going through 'Verified by Visa'. This is because Three have a dispute with Visa and do not want to pay their charges. Very frustrating if you wish to top up or buy online (because you can't!).
