The first company that comes up with a reasonable cost for surfing abroad should get a ton of business from us motorhomersHi Roadrunner,
I've just looked at my usage and I'm hard pressed to go above 1.5GB per month for some fairly prolonged surfing (hence the square eyes ) I don't download music or movies, but occasionally movie clips (YouTube etc). So wih 3GB month you'll be laughing. I've read good reports about 3 products and it seems reasonable. Question is, how much does it cost to use abroad? Don't seem to be able to find that information.
I didn't get the information from a link Stew, it's what the lady in the Vodafone shop told me. Prompted by your question I had a look at the Vodafone web site and it says HERE (for USB Modem under Plan Details) that it is £15 per month for the duration of the contract - so maybe the lady in the shop gave me outdated information or they have changed it to match T-Mobile in the last few days. Whichever is the case, it lost them the contractHi Graham
Have you got a link for the vodaphone going upto £30 a month after 6 months please
GrahamTo ensure a high quality of service for all our customers, a fair use policy of 3GB (of data both sent and received in the UK) per month applies. If you exceed 3GB per month, we may tell you to reduce your future use. If you again exceed 3GB per month, we may tell you that we are going to apply network protection controls, resulting in a reduced network speed for 14 days. If you exceed 3GB per month for a third time, we may tell you that we are going to apply further network protection controls, resulting in a reduced network speed until you upgrade your price plan to include a larger data allowance.
Please help. Are you all talking about using a laptop in the mobilehome while away from home. if so Please tell me where to start.- If you have time. Thanks.Hi Digger
T-Mobile have just joined network forces with 3G too so coverage is excellent!
Not yet they haven't but you are right it is planned. I know they haven't yet because sitting here I get very slow gprs connection on my state of the art, only just released bang upto date T Mobile phone and yet very fast 3G connection on my Three phone purchased two years ago.
You will find that your T Mobile internet is unlimited browsing but limited to either 1, 3 or 10 gig dependant on the package you pay extra for. However it is only a fair useage policy so you should not get charged extra, they will simply slow it down even further if you exceed.
Are you sure you can use it as a modem? A lot of inclusive packages do not include the plus or max web and walk which is what you need for modem use.
Don't trust what the operator tells you, they are often confused about it all
I agree, it's getting simpler all the time.Hi largodandle!
Its very simple nowadays to get mobile internet on your laptop!
In fact some phone suppliers give the laptop free with the contract!
I am using a mobile phone to connect mine but you can use a Dongle too!
Heres a link to T-Mobile to get you started!
