3 Dongle dangled


Take a look at what came via the post yesterday.

I am a satisfied 3 Skypephone user and had been thinking about signing up for their mobile broadband service after reading about it. Just imagine my delight when I was offered the opportunity to try it out for FREE for 3 months with absolutely no data restrictions.

The free gifts that came with the "dongle" was completely unexpected. I don't mind - I love free stuff.

Anyway, the dongle is actually a Huawei E169G USB Modem and looks like a bit like a normal USB flash drive.





Before using it, you have to take out the USIM card holder and insert the USIM card. Stick the dongle into one of your laptop's USB ports.



The modem software installs automatically. Once installed, all I have to do is click "Connect" on the pop-up screen and I am done - mobile broadband Internet access.

Over the next three months, I will be testing out the modem from various locations in the UK. Look out for more reviews and technical details on my tech blog Adamok dot net.

Thanks to Sam and the other guys at 3mobilebuzz for giving me the opportunity to try out the modem and of course, the other freebies.

How cool, u get to try their service for free for 3 months! I'm currently using Maxis Broadband and am paying RM178 a month for a two year contract, which includes a HP Laptop as well.
I met a student who was using an independent modem that costs RM600 (can reach up to 7.2Mb) and Celcom broadband internet.
My MAXIS connection can reach a max of 3.2 Mb, even in Desaru, Johor. Next, I want to test it in Perlis, my hometown.

Thanks for the invitation Yog. Going over there now.

Rani: I love being able to surf the net almost anywhere.

3.2mb is even faster than I have here in the UK.
