I am currently using a Vodaphone 3G Data Card connected to my laptop to receive and send E-Mails when I go down to Blue Anchor in Somerset where I have a caravan. I spend about twenty weeks spread over the year there. I do not wish to use the Web. The 3G Data Card is expensive to use and the conection is poor. I have just heard about the Dongle so can anyone recomend what would suit me and are they as suceptable to poor reception as a 3G Data Card because all the reviews I have seen appear to test in London.
and have used it all over the UK and Europe quite successfully. As has already been pointed out, the connection uses the mobile network, so if phone signals are poor internet access will be flaky.
The up-side is that for a relatively small monthly contract payment you'll have unlimited internet access wherever there's a phone signal. Be wary of using one outside the UK, because you'll pay a roaming network charge, and internet access costs will mount up alarmingly.
