    After getting a new laptop for Christmas (now one each), the next step was to sort out internet access. We have a contract with '3' for 3gig download for £7.50 per month.

    As we are thinking of changing our contract 'phone we thought of getting a 'phone that we could also use for internet access on the new laptop. On making enquiries we were told of a Wireless Modem N06HN 3 PAYG Mobile Wi-Fi available from Maplins. We had the idea of using the sim card out of our contract 3 mobile in this modem, and then we could share it. Bought it for £49.00 and tried it - we are over the moon, as we can both have internet access at the same time for £7.50/month. We are not into downloading music or films so the 3gig is enough for us at the moment.

    It's probably not a new idea for some but it was for us and we wanted to share it.

    Unfortunately we couldn't use it at the New Year Meet as no '3' signal, but making up for lost time now.
