You might be thinking “why do I need 3 mobile broadband internet?” – Well I’ve recently come to realise that this would be a great addition to my gadget bag, it means I don’t need to rely on the places I visit having wireless internet access. For instance, many coffee shops/hotels still do not provide any form of wireless broadband internet, or if they do, it is often charged at an expensive rate.
Therefore by having a 3 mobile broadband USB dongle (card), it gives you the convenience of working/surfing the internet anywhere with a mobile network signal, in my experience there are very few places these days that don’t have any signal at all. It also makes for a great backup in the event your ADSL or cable connection go down and you still need to access the Internet, particularly important if it involves your work!
Another handy use of having a 3 mobile broadband internet USB dongle, is if you don’t have a landline telephone or cable TV installed, you could use this instead. This then obviously saves you having to pay unnecessary additional charges such as line rental or TV subscriptions.
In terms of download limits, the pricing plans also make them a very attractive option to anyone who is a casual internet user who doesn’t do a lot of downloading or streaming of video.
There are various tariffs available to suit your individual needs, for example, there are ‘Pay As You Go’ and Pay Monthly packages at prices starting at just £10 for a 1GB data allowance, with the top packages costing £30 for 15GB — certain packages also include a free USB mobile broadband modem dongle!
I would have to say, as someone who plays online games, I would probably stick to a wired internet connection for that purpose as relying on a mobile broadband connection will mean you’re more liable to experience varying connection speeds, as well as generally slower response times that are more susceptible to fluctuations.
Overall, I think this is a great option for anyone who requires mobile broadband that gives them an internet connection on any computer that they choose to use the wireless internet USB dongle with. Now the price point has come down, I would definitely recommend this as I find it extremely useful having access to 3 mobile broadband!
