We have all been there, booked a break away, arrive and fin that either a) there is no broadband OR b) there is broadband but it is shockingly bad...with the new Three MiFi dongle, you get WiFi whenever you want, where ever you want...
We recently went on a little road trip with Betty and ohhhh my phones signal was rubbish, and then just as Facebook was loading, my credit ran out...My rubbish phone had used £5 of credit and I hadn't even seen an update! The same happened on our recent trip to London, 3 hours on a train with limited to no internet signal on my phone.
A while back me an the hubs decided it was a good idea to maybe invest in a mobile WiFi dongle to take with us. I started researching and then, well you now how it is life happens and you forget that they even exist let alone that you wanted one! And then mid August, Three got in touch and asked if we wanted to review their Huawei E5330 Mobile Wi-Fi with 12GB of data (that should last about a year)...talk about luck!
So what do you get for your dollar?
The Huawei E5330 Mobile Wi-Fi lets you securely connect up to 5 WiFi gadgets to the internet at once. So while you’re doing your banking and shopping on your laptop, the kids can play apps on your tablet (Three also have a great range, from £16 a month) and the tween can watch You tube on her phone!
You can chose between a variety of price plans. Contract or pay as you go. Prices from £8 a month on contract and £49.99 for the device and 1GB of data. (The device we have came loaded with 12gb of data, valid for 1 year and has an RRP of £109.99)
Was it any good?
Yes! We have had dongles in the past, from a variety of mobile providers, and well always found them a little bit rubbish! In fact sometime even getting them to connect at all was a mission!
The device is super slim line, no bigger than a phone and is lightweight. You get about 4-6 hours running time and can charge via USB or mains plug.
We loved this little piece of kit it has definitely become one of my blogging must haves! I would definitely recommend you purchase one!
