    ZTE MF65. They don't say if it is unlocked but it's 3g and HPSS, I've had a ZTE stick in the past and it was just fine.

    Edit: Sorry, that was meant to say mi-fi but I don't know how to change the title.

    Nice price - id be keen to hear of suggestions for a similar device with external antenna inputs.

    Only one I have found is £100 : Huawei 5577

    Being a technical dinosaur I presume when you have bought this you need to have a contract with an internet provider?

    I'm not convinced even 4g is a good idea with PAYG! I've just bought a 4g MiFi and external aerial and did some testing with it - when I checked it had got through 400Mb in not many minutes at all and I'd only put 1Gb on the card.

    I run 4g here in Spain and it is not cheap but it is very fast!

    Mine is unlimited so I don't worry about how much I download!

    The annoying thing is, they're just down the road from me but you cannot buy "direct", everything has to be mail order. In which case, in my book, postage should be included.

    I changed my mifi purchase to a 3/4g one, glad I did as it seems 4g is the norm for some countries!

    Diesel ... have a read of this thread ... a Huawei 5573 MIFI with twin external antenna inputs for £20 via Carphone warehouse - just cancel the rolling 30 day contract and you'll only pay £20!

    See my post #25 on here:

    Carphone Warehouse Link for the 30 day deal not working at the moment, may have been pulled.

    Hmmm ... it's been there for a while and it's still being advertised in their banner, so could be a web glitch ... or maybe they've realised how good a deal it is!
