Getting online on laptop

  wuluf 17:00 10 Feb 2009

We have the Vodafone Mobile Broadband USB stick which we use on our PC as we cannot get proper broadband and it's great - no problems. Trouble is OH now hijacks computer to play online games and I can't get on! I'm going to get myself a laptop but wondered what your suggestions are about the best way to get online on that. From what I've seen of those free laptop with mobile broadband deals, I'm not happy with the monthly cost or the quality of laptop. Am I looking at taking out another contract with another USB stick or can I somehow make use of my existing one? Any other ideas? Is it worth trying to speak to Vodafone about doing me a deal on a second stick?
Any advice would be much appreciated

Have a look at someone like 02. Dont go and get one of them so called free ones. It will cost you more than if you bought a one for about £300 yourself.
I dont know if you can run two computers on one stick, I think you would not be able to. Why dont you ask that ISP to see if they do deals on two accounts. Not much help, sorry

Thanks Mike - looks like just the thing...only problem is price :( Would be cheaper just to have a second stick!
