Mobile Broadband Dongles From Vodafone, T-Mobile & 3
You can now get free mobile broadband dongles from 3, Vodafone and T-Mobile.
Dongles is a collective term used to describe the USB modems or USB sticks that you place into the USB port on your laptop to enable wireless access to the internet at broadband speeds.
The dongle connects your laptop to the 3G broadband network of the mobile phone operator which means you can have mobile broadband access pretty much anywhere in the UK and Europe.
Therefore, you can use your laptop to surf the web or check your emails from wherever you want as opposed to fixed line home broadband or the various wireless hotspots (wi-fi) available in hotels, cafes and airports.
Mobile broadband prices start from just £10 a month for speeds ranging from 2Mb to 7Mb. Prices can vary depending upon the contract period you choose (12, 18 or 24 months), whilst there’s also pay as you go mobile broadband (known as no contract mobile broadband) available.
