Worth bearing in mind the costs of going over your download limit with Three. I was tempted to get a dongle when there was a deal on until I saw the small print on going over your download limit.
£1/MB, how about no.
Just popping back to let everyone know that I ended up going for a T Mobile 'web'n'walk' package.
Modem costs £50 and you pay £2 for every day used (from midnight to midnight) with a reasonable use policy in place for data usage .. chap in shop said it was 3Gb but you'd have to do a lot to get them to do anything to you should you go over this.
I reckon it's a very good deal for the occasional train journey or day away from home where there's no wifi - certainly WAY better than expensive hotel internet costs.
Performance is pretty darn good too .. connected at 3.6Mbps and getting download speeds in the 150-200Kbps range.
That sounds pretty good
I just bought a ultra portable laptop at the weekend and ordered the T-Mobile PAYG mobile broadband yesterday. I will be using for the same reasons, odd train journey, hotels, places with no wifi etc etc.
Have you used it while on the move yet (i.e. on a train)? It would be interesting too know how stable the connection is or if you need to reconnect at all.
