Vodafone mobile broadband dongle

RRP £35 including 1gb of data

I've been fancying one of these for a while. The idea of being able to have broadband while I'm out in the field for long periods of time seems like a good prospect. Pay as you go broadband has been around for a while now, and it seems to me that Vodafone is ahead of the game, their broadband pay as you go dongle is £35 (cheaper than others) comes with 1gb of data in the price (more than others) and unlike every other mobile broadband, your data does not expire, so you can top it up and just leave it there and use it as and when you need it. Very easy to use, you simply plug it in, it installs the software automatically. In the next few weeks I will attempt to get out and test this in Snowdonia and the Peak and let everyone know the outcome of how effective this is as a tool for outdoor instructors. I see this as being particularly useful for going abroad, and for instructors who are in the field for long periods of time and need to get access to email and internet without having to go to a webcafe etc.

More to follow....
