Can I use this abroad, in Malawi? Would I need a local SIM card? I believe the provider is airtel. I have a microsoft surface tablet.

Sorry I have not tried this device in Malawi but, from my experience it seems to work well in several European countries using a local SIM card. So far I have used it only on an Android tablet and on an Acer Laptop using Windows 7.

Yes you can use it worldwide. You could use your own SIM with roaming but this would (I should think) cost a fortune. I always use a local SIM.

It's working fine for me in India - it will also work in Malawi the setup password is inside the device, once done you can connect upto 5 device

I use it in Ghana and is excellent..better reception than any other dongle..attach small aerial and reception improves dramatically. It is not locked to any provider so, buy local sim with internet bundle and you can use it anywhere..
