BT Adds Free Mobile Broadband With Its Dongle

BT has added free mobile broadband as an optional extra to its range of 18 month BT Total Broadband packages.

New customers or those switching now have the opportunity to add the BT dongle to their BT Broadband online order. This will enable them to receive 1GB of free mobile broadband usage each month, which is worth £180 over the course of the 18 month contract.

BT Mobile Broadband provides Internet access at up to 7.2Mb speeds depending on your location. The BT dongle, which plugs into a users laptop and automatically connects to the Internet, works over the 3G mobile network which has 80% UK coverage.

New customers ordering BT Total Broadband Option 1 and 2 will need to pay a one-off £49.99 for the BT dongle, whereas those preferring Option 3 or the Anywhere package simply need to pay a one-off £9.99.

Another option is BT’s new Home and Away package which provides up to 8Mb home broadband, unlimited evening & weekend phone calls, the BT dongle and free BT mobile broadband usage – all from £18.59 a month with a one-off payment of £9.99 required for the dongle.

Existing BT Broadband customers can also purchase the dongle for a one-off £129.99 and receive the 1GB’s of free mobile broadband usage each month.

Interested readers can find further information at the website, or our BT Mobile Broadband review.

I find this very strange. I am existing option 3 customer and cannot understand why would have to pay £129.99 to receive the ‘dongle’. It would appear that I will be better off leaving BT and going elsewhere.

Why charge loyal customers so much for a Dongle. Makes one want to
change suppliers .

i have just renewed my bt opt 3 & have since seen the mobile dongle, is this the best price for existing customers as i have been with bt broadband 4 years

Just renewed my BT contract and got Option 3, free dongle with 1 gb usage per month (18 month contract), new home hub 2 and new hub phone for £18.56 per month. Cant fault them.

i am with B T option 1 and Broadband, would like a dongle jus for E mail, and surfing when i am away from home, being a novice on P C s would you advise me the tariff for me,and how it works. thanks.

Hi Eric, thanks for your comments.

As you’re an existing BT Broadband customer the dongle will only cost you a one-off £39.99.

You’ll get 1GB of free usage per month, plus no contract and no additional monthly fee to pay.

Take a look at for more information on how it works.

Hope this helps.


Hi can anyone please tell me where i can find a picture of a bt dongle apparently ours were stolen 3 years ago and have been used in all that time usually in the free usage but now they have cost us a 800 pound bill we have rang bt reported them stolen and cancelled them. However it would be good to know what they look like.

Anyone got any feedback on weather you can trace anything about the usage or location of them?

Thanks for any help
