What is a dongle?

Mobile Broadband USB sticks, also known as dongles, allow fast and effective internet access on the go. The light and practical devices are specifically designed for portability, so that your Mobile Broadband is readily available without being an inconvenience to activate. There is no need to search for a strong Wi-Fi connection; simply plug the device into your laptop and start surfing.

Inclusive data

As is often the case with modern technology, you will find an enormous array of different USB devices on the market, and the choice simply depends on your needs. With 3, you get a selection that caters for everyone from the casual web user to the download fanatic. If you will be using your Mobile Broadband heavily, you should be looking for a dongle with a higher GB limit, but remember that your preferred data allowance will affect the cost of the Mobile Broadband plan. The minimum length of contract also depends on your choice of Mobile Broadband access and download limit.
