"Today the UK is filled with a plentiful array of Mobile Broadband choices, which are simple to connect via Plug'n'Play USB Modems"

It’s a bitterly cold winter’s morning and I’m trapped, stuck in an old farmhouse style hotel by heavy snowfall following last night’s business trip into the local town. I haven’t bothered to ask the receptionist about Internet access, it’s clear from the pungent smell of mildew (three stars hay?), rotting wood and apparent lack of a working phone line that the online revolution has somehow gone unnoticed here.

There was a time when such a situation would have ended all hope of getting any work done, but no longer. Thanks to the affordable Mobile Broadband revolution, which allows you to hook your computer up to a high speed link delivered via the wireless cell (radio spectrum) network of mobile phone operators, a bit of heavy snowfall and a downed land line are no longer an obstacle.

Today the UK is filled with a plentiful array of Mobile Broadband choices, which are simple to connect via Plug'n'Play USB Modems (dongles) and offer strong multi-Gigabyte data allowances at an affordable price. So where’s the catch? ISPreview grabbed a swanky new Vodafone Mobile Broadband package and set about to find the answer.

The Kit

The Vodafone Pay As You Go (payg) Mobile Broadband service we picked, much like many other pre-paid packages from rivals, included a sleek white Huawei USB Modem with a spare slot on the side for a microSD storage card. The SIM card was also easy to extract via a holder just above the USB connector, although we didn’t attempt to try it in other devices. Vodafone also included a small USB extension cable (not show below).
