Mobile Wifi Dongle

Recommended Posts

If you have use a portable wifi dongle with a data sim then Argos have a half version if your looking to upgrade. I have the model below this and can't fault it. It also takes a 32gig card.

I use one most days for wifi in the van for ipad/;a[top or when I work away to keep off the free wifi in the hotels.

It's used on the boat just like your router at home and conect via wifi upto 10 devices.

If your swapping units don't forget to check your sim size matches you may have to call in a phone shop and ask them to trim it down,

I use the huawei one from 02, this came with 12 gb data that was valid for a year.

I paid £60, but £40 of that was the data sim. mine also allows multiple devices, and when I last checked earlier in the week I had only used 1.3gb of my 12 gb since May this year

Should do it's not locked to anyone network. Just check your sim card size, I think it's a micro (middle size) sim. If your sim is nano you can pick a £1 adaptor set from £shop.

Does it have connection for an external attenna? They can make a huge difference to connection speed in low signal areas.

my Huawei doesnt, though I do leave the usb connected (its only a short 4" cable) but nowhere on the broads have I not been able to connect (at least well enough to monitor the forum while i was away).
