"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).

I have what pupports to be the best Vodafone dongle for our home machine as we cannot get a BT line to our house. We are 4 miles from Reading and 4 miles from Henley on Thames but a reliable land line connection seems to be beyond the wit of BT. The Vodafone dongle is all we can use (we have tried all the nother providers) and it is awful. It falls off line during the day or when its raining, its worse during the summer when the trees have leaves (!!!) and you cannot find a number to call them to try and get a connection test. They are a rubbish company, and I would recommend anyone who things about them as a mobile supplier to think again. I am stuck with them!

Well I unpacked the USB Stick and plugged it into my "Free" laptop and it installed the software and in a few min's I was up and running, but the connection only lasted a few mins then cut out, I then decided to try later on in the day and every time I tred to connect to the 3g Network a Error in there own programme came up, So I thought I would call Customer services, What a waist of time that was, Today I'm taking it all back to Cancel the contract with Vodaphone.

I've got 3 Mobile Broadband (http://www.store-3.co.uk/3-three-3-mobile-broadband-usb-e169-stick-modem-white.html) and have to say that it's amazing - incredibly fast, though I am using it in central London so it may not be so good outside of the city. Also, it does do the image compression thing, but I've heard that it can be disabled.. somehow...
