"3G" is basically the third generation of mobile phone technology, but there is also the "3" network, alongside the other networks - O2, Vodafone, Orange and T-Mobile.

If grandson is going to continue using the SIM card from the broken dongle, then make sure the replacement is on the same network.

Dongles on the Three network are 3G so there cannot be any confusion.
