ConsNot-so User Friendly Software, Smokin' Hot Dongle

Internet has always been something that has fascinated me in every aspect, but from my home in Milton Keynes I have the worst possible connection imaginable. At times when I was living near the centre of the city I would get as little as 0.3mb/s at BEST. There was a solution to my problem but I...

3 Introduce MiFi (personal mobile broadband and hotspot) Introduction Mobile broadband, its the latest buzz phrase. You know the one, big ugly dongle sticking precariously from the side of your laptop/netbook. Tethered to that one device while you load up proprietary dialup software on your PC to...

ProCheap and performs well

ConsThere are some damning reviews out there!

I have been with 3 mobile on a contact with various handsets for about 6 years now, and I have consistently been impressed with the customer service provided by 3, along with the price plans, and network reception. About 6 months ago I received a call from 3 offering me a special deal on a dongle...

ConsNone!

For years I used the traditional ADSL broadband and just accepted that I would never have a fast internet connection. Until - that is - I moved house and didn't want the hassle (and delay) of getting a phone line turned on and having a router sent out (which always takes weeks in my experience)...

ConsCan't find any signal

We were looking for a Dongle for our Laptop when we moved house as we didn't have Broadband. We looked around for a bit and decided to go for the 3mobile Broadband dongle with £30 preloaded credit. When we first installed it it was a bit slow but I just put that down to the fact that I was used...

I took out 3 mobile's 15g a month package 18 months ago with their "free" laptop deal through PC World. I have to admit that in the first 12 months I rarely used the broadband, but when we went to an outer lying Scottish island for a couple of weeks in the Summer, neither I or my wife could get...

ProReasonable price and easy to set up

ConsA little slow

We bought this rather snazzy little dongle to take away with us when we travel to see family. My husband is from Lincolnshire (we're in the West Mids) so we wanted to be able to take out laptop with us when we visited family and to be able to get on the internet. We picked up this dongle from our...

I have been with 3 for a few years now. The dongel or stick came free with the package. I started off on the 1GB allowance, exceeded the limit and was charged heavily. Then I changed to the 5GB monthly allowance, not that I'm a heavy user of the internet either. The 5GB contract I have is an 18...
